(UK) I want to sell things but I don't want to have to buy or hold any stock. Possible? Is there a name for such a business? How is it done?

I've heard of affiliate programs but I don't want a site that simply redirects to other sites and I'd like to earn a little more money from the sales than just a small percentage of commission.
What I am looking for is a way of selling products without having to actually buy or hold any stock.
I would own the online shop. Customers would buy through me and the orders would be sent to a third party who would then dispatch the products to the customer.
Crazy idea? Does such a business model exist?
