Step 3: Wholesale Accessories ships the order
In this case, let’s assume that the item is in stock and the wholesaler is able to charge Sports Outlet’s card successfully. Then, the supplier Wholesale Accessories will pack the order and ship it directly to the customer. The shipping address information is from the dropship request sent earlier from Sports Outlet.
Although the shipment is from Wholesale Accessories, Sports Outlet’s name and address will appear on the return address label. Besides, their logo will display on the invoice and packing slip. Once the shipment has been confirmed, Wholesale Accessories will send an email to Sports Outlet with the invoice and a tracking number generated from a shipping agency.
The turnaround time on dropshipping orders is often very fast. Most quality suppliers can be able to deliver the package to the customer’s door in just a few hours. This makes the selling process of retailers run smoothly, like normal order fulfillment.
