Old Drop Shipping
Drop Shipping is a service in which someone else (eg. A wholesaler) ships products to the end user on behalf of another seller. We are proud to announce that JM is becoming the largest vaping, e-liquid and CBD drop shipper in the UK, with multiple high profile clients using our service. We provide the most advanced drop shipping solution possible, which puts us much further ahead than any of our competitors.
Basic Drop Shipping
You must already know what a basic drop shipping solution looks like. This kind of system is provided by most drop shippers out there, whereby you are able to list a product from a supplier’s website or catalogue on to your own website. Then whenever you sell an item on your site, you place that order with your supplier and pay for the shipping. Then the supplier will send the items straight to your customers. Although this basic drop shipping solution seems efficient and straight forward in theory, it has its own drawbacks. Let’s look at the advantages and the disadvantages of basic drop shipping.
No inventory cost – You are able to offer a wide range of products without having to buy them in advance. This way you can start trading without any initial capital.
No storage space – Same as above, you are able to offer a wide range of products without having physical storage space. You’ll save a lot of money which otherwise would be spent on rent and leasing.
Saves Time – Once you sell an item you don’t have to physically pick and pack the products for dispatch. This saves a lot of precious time.
Manual Stock controlling – You need to make sure that the stock on your website is in sync with the supplier’s stock. You may have to go through your supplier’s inventory a few times a day to make sure that your stock matches your supplier’s. The worst thing is to sell something on your website to then find out that the supplier is out of stock on that item. Realistically, it’s not always possible to control stock manually every day, especially when you have hundreds of products in your inventory to keep track of. This could potentially limit your business from growing after a certain point!
Listing products – With drop shipping you’ll have to list all of the products yourself, which also involves keeping up and listing new products every day as soon as they’re available. This is not necessarily a bad thing, as you’d still be listing products even if you fulfil orders yourself. But this listing process will be a secondary concern and can be totally eradicated with our advance drop shipping method below. This could save a lot of time.
Manual order processing – Although you won’t physically be dispatching orders yourself when you get an order, you still manually have to forward the order to your supplier. Or worse, you will have to place the order on the supplier’s website with your buyer’s information. Seems easy but you have to do that every single time whenever you get an order. Imagine when you’re getting hundreds of orders per day, you must be glued to your computer to make sure your customers receive their order on time.
Non-confidentiality – Although most drop shippers will claim that their method is confidential and the customer won’t know where the item came from, in our studies, we found that this is not always the case. The origin of the products would easily be revealed from the return addresses and courier negligence.
Messy return process – You have to accept that wholesalers and suppliers are not fond of returns and they’re not customer friendly when it comes to this issue. This often leads to them having complex return policies, which can result in unhappy customers. At the end of the day, they are your customers, not theirs. Also, in some instances you may be required to accept your returns and then forward those to your supplier for processing, this means extra shipping costs for you to worry about, and this will also lead to a longer return process.
High Shipping cost – Most of the drop shippers will charge a higher shipping cost (£5 or above) to send an item, even if the item weighs less than 100g. This is because they normally have shipping contracts for heavier or bulk parcels.
With this kind of a Basic Drop shipping solution, the more your business grows, the more difficult it becomes to control it. This can restrict your business from growing after a certain point. But all of the above problems and many others can be eradicated with our Advanced Drop Shipping solution.
Advanced Drop Shipping Solution
We are the first (Vaping) wholesaler in the UK to provide this advanced drop shipping solution. Whether you’re a start-up or already trading, we have exactly what you need to make your business efficient, effective, and successful, and to take it to the next level. Let’s look at what you’ll be getting with our advanced drop shipping solution.
No More Manual Listings – You’ll no longer need to list products individually on your site. Yes, you’ve heard that right! We are able to professionally list hundreds of products a day on your site. All of our listings will contain professional photos (with no watermark) and accurate descriptions. Although we will take care of the listings, you can still control which products and categories you want to be listed. We have the ability to list our complete inventory on your site in about 5 days, which means you’ll have a professional business with a huge range of inventory in no time. This way you can blow away any competitor with your one-stop shop within a couple of days.
Personalise as you wish – After we’ve listed the products, you can still personalise and change your listings the way you please. You will have full control. Descriptions and even photos can be changed according to your liking. The order of products can also be changed.
Keep on top of the game – whenever we get new products we’ll make sure they get listed on your site instantly, so you’ll be the one to sell the latest items soon as they’re available.
Customise the products you sell – Once we’ve listed an item, you can decide how you want to sell them. For example, if you decide to sell individual coils rather than packs, then we will make this accessible to your customers. In this case, we’ll just charge you for the individual coil rather than a full pack; our system can detect an individual coil from a box for instance.
Higher Profit Margin – Once you’re on board, we will offer you discounted prices (than our already competitive wholesale prices) for selected products. This can help you achieve a higher profit margin than otherwise. This is one of the Amazing things that you’d get from our drop shipping solution; we can offer you prices that you won’t be able to get from any other wholesalers!
Product requests – We stock a wide range of products which keeps increasing every day, but if you want to see something on your website that we don’t stock, then you can request such products from us. We’re always trying to increase our product range, so we’ll try our best to source those products, which can then be listed on your site.
Automated pricing – It could take a long time for you to price hundreds of items individually. But with our solution, pricing can be automated according to the rules you set. When we upload a product to your website we can leave the price blank, or set up a selling price according to the profit margin you tell us for that specific product type. You can also set or change the selling price yourself anytime once an item is uploaded.
Automated stock control – With us you don’t have to check for stock ever again! We can connect all of your listings to our stock controlling system, so all the stock will be synced in real-time. No more overselling and this can also save a lot of your time.
Automated order processing – Once we’ve connected your site to our system, whenever someone places an order on your website, it will automatically get processed and securely dispatched by us. You don’t have to worry about passing your order details to us or placing the order on our site on behalf of your customer. There’s no order submission required. Even if you’re not aware that you’ve made a sale, we will complete your order as if it was ours. Even if you sell hundreds of items a day, they will all get processed automatically.
Quick order processing – We will dispatch all orders on the same day. So you can be certain that your customers will receive their orders at the right time.
Discounted Shipping Fee – We work closely with some of the biggest courier companies in the UK, so we are able to provide you with Economy and Expedited shipping options at highly competitive rates. This will certainly help you stand out from your competitors. Also, all of our packages will be tracked, so the customer knows exactly where their item is at any stage.
100% Confidential – Our professionally packed parcels will contain no reference to our company. All returns are addressed to our courier partners who then redirect the items to us. We’ve thought carefully about the returns, and have exactly what is needed to do the job in a discreet manner.
Personalised branding – All of your customer invoices will have your information and logo. There won’t be any indication that the products they receive are being drop shipped by us.
Customer service – We can also handle customer service on your behalf; we offer full or partial customer service according to your preference. When a customer has a query about the product they’ve received or a general question about a product, we are happy to answer those as they’re being sold by us. We will answer all shipping queries on your behalf by default, as we’re responsible for every item that we ship out. We will consistently provide highly professional customer service to your buyers and make sure they are happy at all times. Once you’re our customer, your customers become ours too!
