How to Choose a Suitable Fulfillment Agency for Your Dropshipping Business
PART 1·Why do you need a fulfillment agency to help you?
Start and run your business with less capital
Getting started with dropshipping is a breeze and quite cost-effective. For example, your main costs will be building and maintaining your e-commerce website, since you don’t have to worry about exorbitant inventory costs.
Easier to expand SKU breadth
No need to worry about dealing with only one supplier. You can reach out to many, which allows you to sell way more products. Once again, if you don’t have to pay for inventory, you’ll save money, making it easier to broaden your product line and even sell unrelated items.
Take risks on untested products
One of the major pluses of dropshipping is that you can use your own store to test out the market. You can find out whether certain products will sell and test out new products without much risk or financial strain. Sometimes, these new and unique products become big hits, known as “sleepers.” Dropshipping fulfillment allows you to discover those sleepers.
Improve efficiency and save costs when the sales season is on its way
Whenever a sales season is approaching (such as Q4), do you ever get the feeling that you don’t have enough manpower to handle preliminary tasks? Product selection, advertising, and copywriting can leave you feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. You need to find a reliable fulfillment company during the peak sales season to help take the burden off your shoulders. Doing this can boost efficiency and help you save costs.
PART 2·How can a fulfillment agency help you process your orders?
Learn the processes of fulfillment:
What USAdrop can do for you :
We have a professional team that uses special search tools to help you find the best winning and trending products, which saves you loads of time.
We source our quality products directly from only the most reliable manufacturers in China.
Products are purchased at favorable prices. Manufacturer prices are negotiated based on order volume. This allows you to save as much money as possible in the process.
Before shipping, we thoroughly check both the packaging and the products. This ensures that everything we send is in perfect condition.
There is no need to worry about having Chinese information on your package. We will repack your order to ensure that this will not happen.
Warehousing is another one of our excellent services. Save space by having us store your products for you. We have two warehouses: one in Shenzhen and the other in Yiwu, both of which offer a floor space of 6000㎡.
Our primary shipping method is USPS Express. We do this so as your shipping label doesn't include any Chinese information. It also allows for a fast shipping time of 5-8 days from China to the US.
An order will be fulfilled within 25 hours if the item is available in one of our warehouses. However, if that's not the case and the item isn’t in one of our warehouses, it’ll still only take a short amount of time—just 1-3 days.
