Drop Shipping FAQ

What is Drop Shipping?

Drop Shipping is a supply chain management solution in which the retailer does not have to keep goods in stock and tie up cash flow with inventory. Instead, you enter your customers information and order on our site and the order is packed and shipped to the customer as if it was from you, saving you time and money so you can concentrate on selling.

Benefits of Drop Shipping

A few significant benefits of drop shipping are the elimination of upfront inventory and the need to ship orders. We carry all the inventory so you don't have to. There is no need for a large inventory investments, no need to search relentlessly for products and no need to go to the time consuming and often frustrating experience of shipping off your orders. You wont have to pay for and wait for large expensive shipments of goods and then have to repackage, take good photos and ship your products to your customer. We do it all for you. All you have to do is sell, get paid, submit your order and we take care of the rest.

Does it cost anything to become a seller?
