Looking for a new way to sell furniture?
We’re in the business of helping people make money online. That’s why we created Dropship Furniture – a program that gives you access to thousands of products with no minimum order and free shipping within the UK Mainland. It’s perfect for both new start-ups or established companies who want to sell furniture without having to hold any stock themselves. There is an extra 10% discount if you spend £1000 before taxes, giving you extra profit if you have a customer who wants, for example, a completely new look for their dining room. There is no commitment to any annual spend!
10% off on orders over £1000 before VAT.
Do you have your own storage area and want to do your own deliveries?
Trade Furniture is a program that has been designed to help companies who have their own storage area and want to do their own deliveries. It is also a great help to ‘bricks and mortar’ customers who want to take stock which their customers can buy off the shop floor. In addition, you can take advantage of the higher discounts if you have a larger project, for example a hotel, or interior design project. We can then deliver the order directly from our warehouse or direct to the address of your customer. There is no committment to repeated orders.
Up to 25% off on standard dropship prices
Are you looking to purchase furniture at wholesale?
Our Furniture at Wholesale program is specifically for large customers who can take and pay for a full container of stock at one time. The higher discounts can provide more margin on the selling price or can be used to offset the storage costs. You then have the comfort of knowing your own stock levels. It can also be used for any customer who is quoting for a specific large project. For example, you may be successful in bidding for a full refurbishment of a hotel.
Up to 50% off on standard dropship prices depending on the size of container and mix of products
The Benefits of Dropshipping
Dropshipping is a business model that’s not new, but has been adapted for the e-commerce age. It involves using a dropshipper in order to ship goods directly to your customer’s doorstep when they buy from your catalogue.
This means of e-commerce is effective in its simplicity and is particularly helpful for new businesses with little capital and experience. Unlike buying from wholesalers and intermediaries such as stockists, dropship cuts short the supply chain and allows you to focus on the aspects of business that’ll increase sales, rather than shipping and storage.
There are a few major benefits of dropship that we can talk about. There are others, but the main ones that are important to keep in mind when staring an e-commerce business based on dropship as a model are below.
1. Low initial cost: You don’t need a massive amount of capital to start off. Unlike in traditional means of supply wherein you need to spend large sums of money to buy and store stock, dropship allows you to start off with little capital. You can simply place the items on your website after an agreement with your dropshipper and pay for the items that customers buy – it’s an efficient system. If you’re a reliable seller who pays on time, the dropshipper may eventually allow you to pay on a monthly basis as well – increasing the timescale in which you have to pay and giving you more room to manoeuvre. This low amount of initial capital is helpful for new business and encourages them to get into e-commerce without the risk of losing huge amounts of money.
2. Convenience and efficiency: starting an e-commerce business is a difficult task, due to the number of variables involved. You need to set up a warehouse, analyse the amount of stock needed and store it, arrange transport, develop a competent website and do plenty of research to increase sales. Marketing is also an essential part of the business that needs time and energy devoted to it in order to lead to growth. Dropship is the most convenient means of sourcing and indeed the most efficient. Not only do sellers not need to store stock, they don’t even need to worry about packaging and transport because all these elements are handled by the dropshipper. This convenience opens up time for you to focus on research and marketing – the aspects that are likely to increase sales, as opposed to storage, packaging and transport. Outsourcing these aspects leads to you focussing on the means that’ll increase profits and revenue in the future
3. Mobility: dropship ensures all the physical storage, packaging and shipping don’t need to be handled by you. The outsourcing of these physical activities offers you more mobility – you can operate your business from anywhere in the world, there’s no need to check on a warehouse or follow up with stock physically. This flexibility is key – you could be anywhere in the world and your dropship business would work well as long as you stay connected with your dropshipper and the required personnel.
