Drop Shipping - Is it For You?
shippers provide a vital service for aspiring and veteran gift basket
designers and retail boutiques. That's why drop shipping services is
offered by more than 20 firms that fill a void in the U.S. and worldwide.
The term "drop ship" refers to
a third party that is contracted by a retailer to create and deliver/ship
gift baskets, fruit baskets, or other gift-related packages to the
retailer's customer. The third party fulfills the order, and the retailer
receives a percentage of the good's retail price.

you receive a percentage of the sale. That's it. And many drop shippers will

Drop shipping vendors fill an
essential niche in the gift industry.
The drop ship process begins when a
retailer contacts a wholesale supplier to order gifts, gourmet baskets, fruit,
flowers, or customized products to ship to the retailer's client(s) on behalf of
the retailer who does not normally stock such items.

also known as fulfillment services,
has become a viable alternative for a number of reasons.
1. Gift basket designers who
are starting a business don't always have enough space in their home
offices or retail shops to house numerous designs. Drop shippers maintain an
adequate supply of inventory to create gift baskets at their facility
for future orders.
2. Laws in some states,
whether considered antiquated or placed on the books to protect the
public, prohibit designers without storefront locations from selling
gourmet products and alcoholic beverages. These retailers can still
sell gift baskets to their clients through drop ship programs.
3. Designers who are unable
to keep pace with large quantity orders from corporate clients or orders
placed during the holidays turn to drop shippers to supplement
