Collection Drop Ship Solutions

Drop shipping means different things to different people. Retailers drop ship to expand product catalogues, test new product categories, and reduce inventory carrying costs. Supplier and manufacturers drop ship as a service to channel partners in order to accept orders from retailers, e-commerce sites, and marketplaces. Shipwire offers drop ship optimization solutions powered RESTful APIs, managed integrations, and a powerful SaaS order management platform.

The Grommet Enables a Drop Ship Portal

The Grommet grew 450 percent after enabling a custom drop ship solution through Shipwire

The popular product launch platform needed to replace its drop ship vendor management software with a more advanced solution as it expanded its business to include thousands of suppliers. The Grommet worked with Shipwire to enable a drop ship solution that scales with its growth.

It’s a Stripe for drop shipping! Shipwire Connect allowed my developer team to build a hub where suppliers could be defined with location characteristics and connect to TheGrommet.com to access orders, shipping labels, and packing lists. Our Magento shopping cart used Shipwire Connect to display Grommet-fulfilled and drop shipper shipped inventory and shipping rates to buyers in our checkout, with complex order splitting to ensure order dispatch was seamless.
