FAQ

What is drop shipping?

A drop shipper is a manufacturer or authorized wholesale distributor who will ship your single item orders directly to your customers. You will put the product images on your site at retail and wait for an order. Once you receive an order you will email or login to the drop ship supplier's wholesale website to place your customer’s order and they will in turn ship the product directly to your customer.

Why do I need a drop shipper?

You get several advantages by having products drop shipped for you. Through drop shipping you can eliminate some of the following:

 

    You don’t warehouse anything
   ▪ You don’t ship anything.
    You never have to carry costly inventory
    No shipping hassles or expenses
    No minimum order requirements

    You pay the true wholesale price, not the retail price.

 

The drop ship supplier does all that for you. You concentrate on getting sales while the drop shipper concentrates on shipping the products to your customers. If you do not plan on carrying any product inventory, then you should strongly consider drop shipping for your online retail business.

 

How does drop shipping work?

 
Step 1: You pick the items you would like to sell online.
 
Step 2: You promote your products
 
Step 3: Once you get a sale on your website or auction page, you login to the supplier's website and place your wholesale orders. The supplier will package and ship the item directly to your customer.
 
Step 4: You keep the profits!
 
Let's say for example you offer a product on your site and the cost with shipping that you charge your customer is $250.00 and your wholesale cost plus shipping is $125.00. In this example, your profit would be $125.00. You get paid first by your customer, then you place your wholesale drop ship order with your drop ship supplier. It is that easy!

What kind of profit margins can I make with drop shipping?

While there is no standard on wholesale pricing, many wholesale companies typically will give a retailer between 25-60% discount off of standard retail pricing (MSRP). The final agreed pricing model is between you and the wholesale distributor. We list wholesale companies who are either the manufacturer of the product, or they are the first tier import distributor. This is important, as you want to make sure you are getting the right companies for the best possible pricing.

What is a blind drop shipper?

A blind drop shipper will ship product to your customers, under your company name only. They will not have any of their information (i.e. company name, address, advertising...etc.) on the products they send to your customers.
