We know the relationship between you and your ecommerce fulfillment services provider is very important and we take specific steps to help you get what you need to run a successful ecommerce business. This means we keep an open line of communication with you regarding order fulfillment, shipping costs, and more—to help you deliver excellent customer service while maintaining a healthy profit margin.
What is dropshipping?
The dropshipping definition is simple: a type of retail fulfillment method that does not require a business to keep the products they’re selling in stock. This model works well for ecommerce fulfillment. In an ecommerce drop shipping scenario, you as a merchant can sell products via multiple marketplaces and storefronts, but stock inventory and ship items only if a purchase is made. This is different from traditional ecommerce businesses because with drop shipping fulfillment, sellers don’t have to purchase a product until after they have made the sale and been paid by the customer.
Our process for drop shipping fulfillment
We know that if your drop ship supplier makes a mistake—you are the one who has to deal with the fallout. Don’t worry, we work hard to make sure this doesn’t happen by designing a supply chain solution specific to your business model and goals. We can integrate with and drop ship to any large retailer, marketplace, or online store. Our in-house IT solutions also allow us to customize the order to specific retailer requirements.
Benefits of dropshipping
When you have a dropshipping business, you can ship via multiple marketplaces and multiple channels from one location. We provide inventory management for ecommerce, packing, and shipping for you, allowing you to be more efficient as a drop shipper and run the most cost-effective business possible. Additionally, dropshipping makes it easier to scale your business, allowing you to increase in size without the traditional growing pains.
