Dropshipping

Posted by on Mar 21, 2013 in

Drop shipping is a supply chain management technique in which the retailer does not keep goods in stock, but instead transfers customer orders and shipment details to either the manufacturer or a wholesaler. A process often confused with third party order fulfillment. The difference being goods that are ‘drop-shipped’ are purchased from the wholesaler or manufacturer at the time of order and are never received into stock.
