WHAT IS DROP SHIPPING?
Drop Shipping is a retail fulfillment method where a company doesn't stock the products it sells. Instead, when a company sells a product, it purchases the item from a third-party distributor, and has it shipped directly to their customer. As a result, the merchant never sees or handles the product.
HOW IT WORKS AT DANIEL SMART MANUFACTURING INC
We drop ship numerous orders without a moment's delay. Rather than purchasing a lot of stock, you simply partner up with Daniel Smart Manufacturing Inc and list our merchandise on your website. Then, when you receive an order, you place that order with us via our website. We will NOT send any paperwork with the package so your customers will never know that we even exist.If you request, we can also “blind-ship” your order where we will put your information as the “ship from” on the package label.
Our staff is very well trained for drop-shipping, we understand the importance of your customers not knowing the wholesale pricing. We certainly will NEVER ship any paperwork with your drop ship package. If you are one of our existing Dealers, you know how serious we take our Drop Ship Program.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Easy to Get Started – Running an eCommerce business is much easier when you don't have to deal with physical products.
Low Overhead – Because you don't have to deal with purchasing inventory or managing a warehouse, you save overhead expenses you would otherwise incur.
The ease of starting an online store
No registration fees
No minimum purchasing requirements
Great for sellers who sell on Ecommerce sites such as Amazon & eBay
Flexible Location – A drop shipping business can be run from just about anywhere with an internet connection.
Easy to Scale – With a traditional business, if you receive three times as much business, you'll usually need to do three times as much work. By leveraging drop shipping suppliers, most of the work to process additional orders will be taken care of by the suppliers, allowing you to expand with fewer growing pains and less work.
