Located at the southern most point of the African continent, South Africa is an economically prosperous nation that's rich in cultural diversity and economic diversity. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ As of 2010 estimates, there are approximately 50 million people living in South Africa, the majority of them black. Despite the large withdrawal of whites in Africa in recent years, many whites have remained in South Africa to help bring in foreign investment from places like Europe and the United States.
South Africa is currently an independent nation. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ While there were many situations that arose in previous decades, the government wasn't officially turned over to the black majority until the end of May, 1961. Currently, South Africa has a parliamentary style government, in which there are upper and lower houses. The bicameral parliament has 90 members within the upper houses and over 400 members in the lower house.
Similar to the House of Representatives in the United States and other bicameral parliaments, the upper house contains members that represent provinces and regions regardless of population, and the lower house has members voted upon by the people based on the population density of each region that the representatives come from. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/
South Africa's economy is one of the most prosperous and successful on the African continent. The World Bank ranks South Africa's economy as an upper-middle income economy. Recent job-growth measures were taken by the government in September of 2010 to push South Africa in a job creation direction to integrate it even further with the world's economy. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/
Within the plan for economic growth were talks about pushing South Africa to greener energy and a greener economy. Green energy and economic plans always means more jobs and job creation opportunities, meaning South Africa in the coming years is sure to be on a fast-growth track, especially considering the international event, the World Cup, they hosted in the summer of 2010. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ The South African government is attempting to better the job market from the ground up, with plans for revamping the minimum wage to help better introduce young people into the job market. 
In a subsection of the economic prospects section of South Africa, foreign investment in South Africa has grown significantly in the past few years. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ The international bank, Barclay's, purchased a majority share in the local Absa Group Limited in 2005. And the American company Wal-Mart initiated a multibillion dollar deal to acquire South African retailer Massmart at 2010. 
Leading off of the investment section, the British telecom provider, Vodafone, made a move to acquire Vodacom, South Africa's largest mobile provider, in 2008 . RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ South Africa currently has the most advanced telecommunications system in all of Africa, and perhaps the world. Their telecommunication lines are almost entirely digital and with the latest of satellite and wireless technology, it's no wonder that the country is excelling.
Approximately 10% of South Africa's total GDP comes from the communication sector. At the time of 2010, South Africa's mobile phone market was ranked as the fourth fastest growing market in the world. Impressive statistics from a country that struggles with the somewhat poor surrounding African economy. And while broadband costs are still high in South Africa, government policies are being put into place to bring costs down and to further increase the number of South Africans online in the coming years. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ With over a 100% growth rate back in 2005, the number of broadband and mobile broadband subscribers will continue to grow as South Africans realize their need for internet access as they push their economy forward. 
With increased interest from foreign investors, as well as more and more South Africans making their way online, current businesses are having trouble keeping up with the demand of South African consumers. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ Businesses such as drop shipping will continue to grow as more South Africans are looking for products that simply can't be stocked at their local stores. The push forward in the drop shipping industry means more foreign involvement in South Africa, and that means growth. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/
Rich with natural resources and potential, Africa, and more specifically South Africa, is an economic powerhouse that is a force to be reckoned with. As industry booms and foreign investors make their way to South Africa to expand their product ranges, increase production, and expand their markets, it's no wonder why all eyes are on South Africa these days as the world economy grows to handle more and more people. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/
When discussing the economic possibilities of the African nation, it's impossible to overlook the effect that natural resources have on the economy. First and foremost, South Africa is the world's leading exporter of things like vanadium, platinum, chrome, and many other minerals. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ In addition, it also ranks within the top 5 exporters of dozens of other natural resources such as coal and zirconium.
After diamonds were discovered in South Africa in the mid-1800's, a diamond and gold rush raged afterward. Although most of the diamonds and gold have been discovered and harvested, South Africa is still the second largest producer of gold in the world. 
Because it is still an emerging nation, labor costs in South Africa are relatively low compared to the rest of the developing world. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ World automotive companies, such as Ford, Toyota, Chrysler, and many others, have built production facilities in South Africa and produce approximately 500,000 automobiles each year. These are shipped worldwide to countries like the United States and Japan. This is in addition to the approximately 30 billion rand brought in from the production and sale of automotive parts also made in South Africa to be shipped worldwide.  RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/
International trade agreements have allowed European and other Western companies to bring their production facilities to South Africa to utilize the growing labor market and lower production and labor costs that the country has to offer. These agreements were made with the South African Development Community. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/
South Africa's economy possibilities have attracted investors from all over the world, particularly Europe and the United States. A bilateral trade agreement signed in 1993 allowed the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), a United States agency, to back investors going into South Africa with things like loan guarantees and "political risk" RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ insurance to help ease the worries that people may have investing in a foreign economy. 
Telkom, an originally government opened company that ran the telecommunications market in South Africa, in 1993, was partially privatized. The now semi-private Telkom formed an agreement with 2 other companies, including a United States based telecommunication provider called SBC (Southwestern Bell Corporation). RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ As part of the agreement of Telkom after requesting to have a monopoly for a few years over certain areas of the telecommunication industry in South Africa, Telkom expanded cellular and internet service to remote regions of South Africa, ultimately making the South African cellular and internet market one of the best and most expansive.
What does all of this mean for the drop shipping industry in South Africa? RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ Because of its rich natural resource pool, South Africa will always be a central hub for the world's mineral productions. It's these type of permanent economic benefits that have investors making their way to South Africa and making their foothold before competition gets too steep. The drop shipping business in South Africa is on the rise, and the expansion of telecommunication business to rural areas of South Africa means more and more South Africans are demanding and consuming than ever before. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ And as prices come down and more South Africans become employed in these growing sectors, such as the manufacturing sector, the delivery of goods and services will be needed more than ever before. South Africa's on the rise and it isn't slowing down.
It is no secret that any country that manages to obtain the hosting rights to a World Cup is in for a phenomenal economic boost in the years leading up to the games, during them, and sometimes even after the Cup has ended. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ Without looking at the investment in internal infrastructure for the games by building and construction companies, South Africa earned an estimated $220 million (1.6 Billion Rand) more in advertising alone than they did last year. This is in part because of companies like Nike buying advertising rights for almost the entire game. Television advertising, an unusually large market in South Africa, grew an additional 10%, and the telecom and Internet industries saw an overall 20% boost in their ad revenues alone, bringing them up to $19 million in earnings.   RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/
The first global company that made a noticeable impact on the South African economy for the games was the African and Middle Eastern telecom provider, MTN. MTN invested approximately $65 million in boosting the cellular and fiber optic infrastructure in the country before the games. MTN said before the games that they expected the local users, as well as the international visitors, to see a benefit from the boosted speeds and infrastructure. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ With over 600 million SMS messages sent during the games leading up to the semi-finals, it is obvious that MTN's network can withstand a substantial amount of traffic. Also up during the games was the number of international calls either to other African nations, a 20% increase compared to normal outbound calls, or to other international destinations outside of the continent, a 30% increase. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/
According to recent reports regarding the internet infrastructure in South Africa, 2010, and the coming years, have been, and will be, prosperous for the emerging African nation. South Africa's broadband internet market is expected to boom after "years of stagnation due to an expensive operating environment created by Telkom SA's dominance in the fixed-line and international bandwidth market."  But because of new legislation passed in 2010, available in Buddle's annual report of the telecom and Internet outlooks for the African nation, we can expect to see a surge in Internet companies and providers sprouting up in addition to the hundreds that have already formed. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/
Approximately 10% of South Africa's population has access to the internet. With telecommunication companies growing their services and resources in South Africa, the options available to South Africans in regards to their internet availability and subscription options have grown significantly. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ As a result of the increased number of internet connectivity options, such as the increased availability of broadband connections, many more South Africans are considering making the move to faster and more efficient internet connections that exceed their original dial-up lines. This trend has to do with telecom companies increasing their influence in the private sector and allowing for cheaper, faster options to be available to the average, working South African. Many South Africans make decisions about their internet connection plans based on past reliability of service and cost to benefit ratios. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/And because telecom industries are now competing for the business of the ever growing consumer internet market, both reliability and benefits of a faster internet connection will grow as well, ultimately leading to rapid and substantial growth in the private telecom sector. 
With all of this expansion and growth in the internet and telecom sector, what does that mean for business as a whole in South Africa? Like many other countries around the globe, South Africa has a lot to gain from growing their internet infrastructure. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ An increased presence on the web not only means a greater spreading of information, it also means that business costs drop significantly and businesses can operate more efficiently and cost effectively by being able to not only reach a wider audience through the use of a website to sell goods and services, but also to send products and services in a more direct fashion instead of through third parties. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/
Because of the increased presence of South Africans online, one industry that is expected to see tremendous growth following the South African World Cup Telecom and Internet expansion is the drop shipping industry. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ Drop shipping, in short, is when retailers take a customer's product request information, as well as their billing and delivery address information, and passes it on to a wholesaler to complete the order. The wholesaler sends the product to customer and the retailer that the customer originally purchased through keeps the difference in price between what was paid to the retailer and what the good or service ultimately cost from the wholesaler. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ Because South Africans no longer have to find local vendors and retailers that sell their products, online retailers can increase their presence and offer even more products and services to customers without ever expanding their inventory base in a local market.
Reducing the burden of a company to have to store all of the inventory they're planning on selling allows them more economic freedom to sell more products at cheaper rates than they could normally. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ The growth of drop shipping in South Africa will not only bolster economic growth within their own borders, but will also help integrate South Africa's presence in the global economy. Because many wholesalers have yet to make their way to the African continent, an increase in the South African drop shipping business could entice foreign investors and wholesalers to make their way to South African ports and manufacturing plants to help further reduce costs for locals, but also increase business as more South Africans make their way online in the coming years. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ With more and more businesses and consumers demanding high speed internet access to experience services and applications that are only available to high speed connections, we can expect to see a huge growth in not only the number of South Africans online in the coming years, but also the number of high speed internet connections that contribute to the ever growing South African economy.

There is only one major drop shipping company in South Africa, and that's DropShippers SA. The company focuses on both local and international markets to connect suppliers and retailers so that the best and cheapest products can be transacted and ultimately end up in the hands of the South African people. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ Because many international products are unavailable in South Africa, drop shipping companies like DropShippers SA are booming to keep up with the demand for foreign goods.
As with any emerging nation, change and expansion can be scary things to deal with. But as the demand for foreign goods and products increases with the emergence of almost ubiquitous and nationwide internet and cellular service, change is almost inevitable in South Africa. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/
Drop shipping allows you to grow your business in such a way that it doesn't have to be an intimidating retail giant, but rather, a helpful and service oriented shopping outlet for your customers. Drop shipping lets you grow your business and focus on carrying the best products and service for your customer base, encouraging them to shop with you again. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ With companies like DropShippers SA, the suppliers ship the products directly to the customer for you, allowing you to focus not as a middle man between supplier and customer, but as a business that ensures you have the products South Africans desire. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/
A question commonly asked by first time drop shipping retailers is, "why bother with a drop shipping company like DropShippers SA?" Because there are an innumerable number of products available in international markets, it's almost impossible for retailers to connect with all of them to supply products to customers in foreign markets like South Africa. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ DropShippers SA makes the connection between retailer and supplier incredibly easy, saving the time of having to hunt for suppliers for a particular good that's currently in demand in your market. Think of DropShippers SA as a vital partner in your growth as a business and retailer to deliver what it is your customers are looking to buy.
Suppliers sometimes complain that before entering the drop shipping market, they're worried that retailers aren't doing anything but reaping the benefits of selling products. Making money for doing nothing. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ This couldn't be further from the truth. Retailers have the resources to reach unseen markets for your products and through advertising and promotion on their part, they're able to sell more volume of your product than you could have independently.
As the South African economy continues to expand and grow with an urgency about it, more South Africans are finding themselves in a position of not being able to find the goods and services they're looking for within their local markets. Drop shipping retailers do their best to provide the goods they can to an online audience, but because not all suppliers are on board, sometimes the selection of a certain product may be limited or non-existent, leaving an unfilled niche in the consumer market. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ With more South Africans online than ever before, in a market where telecommunications are a big industry and constant expansion is getting almost all South Africans online, drop shipping through online retail is the by far the best way to reach South Africans in this digital age.
Now is the perfect time to bring your supply company to the drop shipping market. RealDropShippers.com http://www.RealDropShippers.com/ As South Africa makes an ever growing splash in the world economy, it won't be long before other suppliers of the same products will jump into the game and capitalize on the market potential that you failed to.
Retailers are waiting to provide the best quality and value to their customers, and it would be foolish not to take advantage of the supply opportunity that is South Africa, an economic powerhouse that will only to continue to grow as more and more foreign investors make their way to the country to provide jobs and economic stimulus.
