Have you considered Drop Shipping?
Drop Ship as a delivery method offers a number of advantages, particularly to small businesses, whether you operate out of a bricks-and-mortar establishment, have an online store, or sell merchandise both ways. Most of our customers buy case pack quantities, but if you need to purchase in smaller quantities (less than our standard $200 order minimum), consider trying our Drop Ship option. Here are two examples of how it works:
Sandy runs her own small formal wear business and makes dresses for bridesmaids, prom, and Sweet Sixteens. Her customers want special-occasion shoes to match, but she specializes in clothing, not footwear. To meet her customers’ needs and keep them happy, she uses our Drop Ship option when she orders with FootwearUS and places individual orders, one pair at a time, as needed.
Marcus isn’t sure if he can sell wide width styles in his family-owned shoe store, but he’s had a few requests from customers and he’d like to test this market. Rather than bringing in a lot of inventory, he reduces his risk and orders a small quantity from FootwearUS, using Drop Ship. With no minimum, he can order whatever he thinks he can sell, even just a single pair. And Drop Ship allows him to special-order for individual customers in search of wide width shoes. If he decides to carry a regular inventory of wide width shoes, he can always increase his orders to Case Pack quantities, or he can stay with Drop Ship.
Buy Only What You Need
With Drop Ship from FootwearUS, simply order what you plan to sell, even if it’s a single pair of shoes. There is no minimum. You don’t have to carry extensive inventory, but you’ll still be able to access our entire catalogue of merchandise. (Fulfillment for Amazon, eBay, Bonanza, Walmart, and Overstock orders are not supported)
We Offer “Blind Drop Ship”
We’ll send an order straight from our warehouse to your customer with a return label that reads “Fulfillment Center” or “Shipper.” This ensures that your customer will return to your business for future purchases. (If requested, we can also send merchandise directly to you.)
Shipping is Free for US Addresses
The Drop Ship option is more expensive than ordering open stock or case pack quantities, but the advantages for your business may offset that cost. Remember, with no minimum you can buy only what you need.
Sign Up and Start Drop Shipping
To join our network of successful dropshippers, please complete an online application here. After your FootwearUS application is reviewed and approved with all requested information provided, your drop ship account will be ready to place orders. Upon request, jpeg images of selected shoes can be provided (uploaded to your desired cloud storage provider) and shoe descriptions and features can be obtained from individual product pages. All jpeg images will be watermarked with corresponding brand name and shoe name. Currently at this time, we do not provide excel or csv files of our products for importation to online marketplaces.
If you also would like to buy in bulk, you will need a separate Wholesale account. After your Dropship account has been approved please contact us with an alternative email address and phone number and we will set up the Wholesale account for you.
Placing a Drop Ship Order
After your application has been approved, your dropship account will be ready to place orders and you will see the discounted prices (35% discount on retail prices, free shipping for US addresses) for any of the products priced $49.95 or higher, after you login. If your FootwearUS account has been approved and you don't see the dropship prices, please contact us. Please be reminded that a valid Sales Tax ID associated with your business through which you are purchasing our products for resale is required for a drop-ship account as well as the submission of your completed Resale Certificate.
