Drop Shipping

If you run a physical (dare I use the term 'Traditional') retail outlet, like a shop of some kind then you won't sell many books if you don't have any on your shelves or in the window! 

However, millions of book are sold each year without the customer being able to inspect them and flick through them first. The fact that retail on the internet is going from strength to strength (particularly with books) and that mail order outlets are also doing well, means that more than ever before, drop shipping is becoming more popular and a pretty good way of doing business for some retailers.

In case you're not aware, drop shipping is the name given to a process something like this:

  • Customer orders book and pays the seller for the book and its postage.
  • Seller gives customer details to Rotographic and pays for the book, less 25% (and postage)
  • Rotographic send the book directly to the sellers customer.

So, as a seller you never need to hold a stock and you make a minimum of £1.57 for every book you sell (based on 25% of the minimum book price, which will be £6.30 in 2013).

Further details:

New drop ship customers will be required to pay for any books and postage up front before the items are sent out. A direct bank transfer (BACS) is preferred as payment method. Personal cheques are acceptable (bear in mind this takes longer). For drop ship orders over £10.00, paypal and credit/debit card is also acceptable. (Paypal and credit/debit card is fine for all drop ship customers outside Europe).

Rotographic will endeavor to get deliveries to customers across Great Britain and Europe within a maximum of 5 working days, and to customers in most other places with good postal systems (USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand for example) in no more than 14 working days. Delivery times are often quicker to the places mentioned above. Other continents may take longer, but all orders will be posted very promptly. 

Rotographic will use the details of the customer for the sole purpose of sending the book to them, at no stage will the details of the customer be used for any other purpose or passed on to any third party.

Hang on a minute..
