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.
