Open a business without the hassle of managing inventory, packaging, or shipping
Drop shipping is a supply chain management method in which the retailer does not keep goods in stock but instead transfers the customer orders and shipment details to either the manufacturer, another retailer, or a wholesaler, who then ships the goods directly to the customer.
No more up front inventory costs or shipping logistics. With drop shipping, products are sent directly from your wholesaler to your customers.
How does drop shipping work?
- Your customer places an order from your online store
- Store automatically sends the order to your drop shipping supplier
- Drop shipping supplier prepares your customer’s order and ships the order directly to your customer
