    A third party you have an agreement with ships the goods directly to your customer. You just take the order.

    from what understand, it like when you are selling
    goods but not keep the stocks. if customers order,
    you just contact the supplier, pay the supplier and the
    supplier will ship the goods to your customers.

    A supplier will ship the item to your customer for you, and you never have to handle the product. Drop shipping allows the reseller to focus on marketing the business and eliminate the hassle, time, and cost of dealing with the actual products they are selling.
    I can recommend you to check out AliDropship blog (https://alidropship.com/category/blog/), where you can find case studies, which will help you to understand how it works on real-life examples.
