Dropshipping is the process of listing an item (usually online in a marketplace or an online store) and instead of buying the stock yourself to sell at a later date, you list stock from our site until it sells through your shop. After the sale takes place on your store, you come back and purchase it from us, we post directly to your customer. This allows you to ensure that you only purchase stock which you have already sold allowing you to free up cash flow and minimise many other costly factors (such as postage) which would otherwise take away from your final profit.
Customers who wish to make an order a dropship order should be signed in as a member, if you are not a member you can sign up by pressing 'Login/ Sign Up' at the top right of this screen. Find the item, add it it to your basket, continue through the checkout and upon entering your customers details on the 'Add Shipping Address' screen and tick the box at the bottom of the screen. It's that simple!
To help you keep your listings up to date, we provide members the option to use 'Low Stock Notifications' available on each product page. This system sends you an email when your selected item(s) reaches 10% stock remaining. It will email you once again when the item becomes out of stock! Low stock notifications can be edited under 'Your Account' when signed in if you no longer wish to receive them.
When we dropship we do so via a method called 'blind dropshipping'. This means that whilst the parcel comes directly from us instead of you, there will be no identifying mark for your customer to trace the parcel back. Your parcel will be securely packaged in a discreet brown box without an invoice. The parcel will include a personalised compliments slip (click for an example here) as shown below (based on the information you provide us), which is carefully folded into three and cleverly doubles up as a dispatch sheet for warehouse use.
We are currently working on a feature that will allow you to personalise the logo and thank you message for your own company.
