What is Dropship and how does it work?
Our dropship service gives your business the opportunity to sell products without holding the stock. Instead, we receive the order, pick, pack and ship directly to your customer via our courier network. As a result you never see or handle the product creating hassle free custom. Dropship provides a service for merchants to pick and choose products that will fit the demands of their consumers without having to stock the product.
With the use of dropship your brand can venture into a range of products, you may be unsure about, risk free. In some occasion it may even be quicker to bring in products via dropship to fill product availability gaps rather than place new orders so late into the season. The decision is all yours, we supply the products and you choose which suit you.
Why use Dropship?
The biggest advantage to dropship is that it’s possible to launch a range of products without having to invest thousands of pounds in inventory up front.
Traditionally, retailers have had to tie up huge amounts of cash flow & storage space to hold their inventory before products have even been placed on sale.
With the dropshipping model, you don’t have to purchase a product unless you have already made the sale and have been paid by your customer. Without major up-front inventory investments, it’s possible to start using dropship successfully without initially spending anything.
Essentially within dropship we do all the hard work. We hold the chosen products in our warehouse until an order has been placed then pick, pack and ship the customer order within the given delivery period via our couriers. Our customer services team deal with returns and queries meaning you can sell as many of our products as you wish without needing to account for more staffing. As a business you can continue to grow without the growing pains that come with it.
