What is dropshipping?
Dropshipping is a form of supply chain management, which essentially outsources the logistics of order fulfillment to a third party - often the products wholesaler - to save the retailer time. It is ideal for mobile practitioners (with no physical storage space), small home businesses, start-ups and anyone else who does not wish to purchase stock in advance of sales, store stock, or label, pack and post orders themselves.
The products retailer does not keep goods sold in stock himself. Instead, as they come in, customer orders (and shipment details) are transferred to the dropship service supplier, who holds the stock. The dropshipper then posts the products (in our case, wholesale herbal remedies, food supplements, vitamins or minerals) directly to the retailer's customer. The package recipient is not aware of this process and thinks that the retailer has posted the item(s), which protects customer loyalty.
Most dropshippers charge a fee (whether monthly or per dropship order) for providing the service. However, here at Specialist Supplements, we provide our dropship service to registered trade customers free of charge! All you pay is a small postage fee, which depends on order weight and destination - just like you would have to pay if you posted the item yourself. The no-fee policy applies whether you re-sell under our branding or under your own labels; regardless of the size of your orders; and whether you mix and match products.
In other words, dropshipping is basically the posting of our health supplements and herbal products directly to a your customers, wherever they are in the world. What could be simpler?
What are the benefits of dropshipping?
As well as the primary benefits already mentioned above, dropshipping means:
- Healthier cashflow: The fact that you don't have to purchase any stock in advance of sales is key. You don't have to make any financial outlay, you don't have to worry about controlling stock levels and having stock that you can't shift. You simply market the herbals and supplements you wish to sell and then, once you actually make sales, you purchase the products at our competitive trade prices and get them dispatched to your customer with no hassle for you. Easy... This arrangement leaves you with a bigger budget for other income-generating aspects of your work, including advertising etc. With our no fee dropshipping service, small retailers and online store owners often find that it solves many of their initial cashflow problems.
- Small volume orders: Most wholesale supplement suppliers specify minimum order quantities and restrict cross-range purchasing to meet those quantities. At Specialist Supplements, we never specify minimum orders. You can buy 1 pot, or 1000 - it's up to you. And this extends to our dropship service - you can send us single or low quantity unit orders for dropshipping without worrying about incurring fees that cut into your profit margin.
- Saving time and resources: There is a lot of work involved in posting orders to retail customers, including stock inventory, product labelling, packing and then posting. In addition, you have the expense of label printing (which we don't charge for), packing materials and staff time. What's more, if you aren't fully up to speed on posting regulations, you could be spending more money on postage than you have to. This can have a significant impact on your profits over time.
