Enquiry For Dropshipping
What is Drop Shipping?
Drop Shipping is an innovative business concept where a retailer does not manufacture or stock retail items that they offer for sale. Instead, the retailer establishes a solid business relationship with the product manufacturers or wholesalers. The retailer acts as the manufacturer’s or wholesalers reseller and is guided by their customer’s order.
When a customer places an online order from the retailer’s website, the retailer contacts the wholesaler or manufacturer to place a purchase order for the customer’s desired product, purchases the product, charge a fee to the customer and provides product shipping instructions to the manufacturer or wholesaler. Delivery of the product comes by "drop shipping" the item/s ordered direct to the customer from the wholesaler or manufacturer.
In this business arrangement, the manufacturer or wholesaler ships the item(s) ordered and the retailer earns a profit on each sale. The retailer doesn’t buy any product until the item ordered by a customer has been successfully placed. Profits in this customer transaction come from the difference between the wholesaler’s price and the retailer’s sales price. The retailer benefits because it uses it marketing, network and brand to attract customers.
Benefits of Drop Shipping
Drop shipping is a highly and widely used retail fulfillment model. It helps retailers remain profitable by taking on minimal risk. The manufacturer or wholesaler takes care of product production or acquisition, inventory management, warehousing and shipping. The retailer, which is either a merchant or seller, focuses on marketing, brand presence and sales.
There are six distinct benefits of drop shipping:
Drop shipping allows retail sellers to offer a product selection larger than might be feasible if the merchant/seller had to physically manufacture and stock the items on its own.
Since a seller does not have to maintain inventory, it can avoid a significant cost of inventory maintenance and insurance, as well as the potential significant cost risk for unsold inventory or outdated items.
Quicker Response for New Items
For those customers seeking new-to-market or trending products, there is no wait time for demand to be fulfilled because products are always available. As soo as an item is identified online, the customer can order and get it shipped immediately.
New Item Exploration
Drop shipping allows retail merchants to test out items and to gauge customer interest to see if they will sell without risking an investment in physical inventory and sales strategies.
Saves Retail Merchant Time
The physical processes of receiving, stocking, packing and shipping ordered items all take time, effort and money. With drop shipping, the merchant’s simplified focus is on selling and confirming orders with the wholesaler or manufacturer.
Customers who utilise drop shipping don’t have to take on the risk of traditional inventory management such as forecasting and stock management.
