For those of you who have never considered drop shipping before we have some information to tell you all about it!
What is Drop Shipping?
In a nutshell, drop shipping is where you advertise your product for sale, however, don’t have this product in stock. When the item sells you send your order through to your supplier (ie. us!) and we print it for you and ship it directly to your customer as if the item has come from you.
What are the benefits of drop shipping?
But I want my customer to think the item is coming directly from me?
No problem at all! Our parcels are sent with no information inside relating to us. We can enclose literature from you such as a flyer/card for an additional small cost or even use your own packaging. If you are a member of Creative Forge there is no charge for this service.
I don’t have any pictures of my products to put on my website.
If you don’t have any photographs of your products, we can offer you images called mock ups to add to your site. This is a separate service Creative Forge offers to all our artists and creatives. High quality, attractive product pictures increase online sales from your website or social media pages. You can find mock ups in our online shop.
How do I order an item for drop shipping?
Simply place your order on the website then, when checking out, enter your customer’s address in the shipping area.
If I want to order in bulk to get quantity discounts, can I leave stock with you to ship when they sell?
Yes absolutely, we offer an option to hold stock with us. Depending upon the space required to hold your stock, there may be a small rental fee to pay.
Do you speak to my customers on my behalf?
No, we never speak directly to your customer. All communication takes place between you and your customer.
If you have any queries just give us a call or email and we will be happy to help.
