Drop Shipping with CLAREDOTCOM
FAQ What is drop shipping?
Drop shipping is a sales model which means the retailer (in this case Claredotcom) does not purchase advance stock amounts or hold stock for sale. Instead the retailer brokers the order which is forwarded directly to the supplier for fulfilment and shipping
What do I get?
- You will have unlimited product listings on claredotcom.com
- claredotcom.com is built on Shopify with access to dozens of features all designed to help you have success - this includes a fully secure, PCI compliant checkout
- Your listings will be built for you and optimized for SEO to maximise your presence on the store
- You have a product included in the featured section at all times
- Listings are shared on various social media outlets to increase visibility
What will this cost me?
There is no fee to have your products listed - like traditional retail there is a margin instead and in this case it is 30% (on your goods, not shipping) - this covers the cost of your listing, checkout and transaction fees on a secure server. So you only “pay” on the goods you sell without the costs and work involved in running your own online store.
When will I be paid?
Allowing for Bank processing you should expect to receive your funds from sales 5-7 days after the order is processed - this is via PayPal.
