Eccommerce Startup Question

I have grand ideas for an ecommerce web site and am curious about how to get where I need from an inventory perspective.

If you look at some of the larger online ecommerce companies:
- How did these companies really decide which inventory would initially sell (knowing that they would have to spend a lot of money)?
(do your best guess and go with it - sounds risky)
- When they started up did they just buy a ton of whatever inventory they decided would sell. (Sounds risky)
- Do they all (most) just have a giant warehouse full of inventory sitting there waiting to sell? Or do most drop ship or use consignment
Thanks for your feedback!
When answering the question please keep in mind these seem like larger Ecommerce sites i'm referring to. Thanks for all the help!
