1. Introduction

Dropshipping is a business model in which an online retailer (the dropshipper) sells products to customers without physically stocking the items. Instead of keeping inventories, the dropshipper partners with a supplier or wholesaler who handles the products’ storage, packaging, and shipping directly to the customers on behalf of the dropshipper.

And if you wish to become a supplier or wholesaler who provided dropship service, you will have to establish a streamlined process for dropshippers to place orders with you. Using SiteGiant Dropship Fulfillment, your dropshippers can submit orders, upload or retrieve shipping labels and track the orders easily.
