Our new Pine Jali furniture is available for both drop ship and wholesale, with both having their unique advantages. In this article we’ll be focussing on dropship and the specific means through which it can help e-commerce sellers sell this collection online. All the products come directly from the manufacturer without intermediaries — the supplier is effective in maintaining high quality at low prices. Goods at Artisan are to the trade, being a solely business to business (Trade only) operation.
Dropship refers to the means of supply in which online sellers use a drop shipper such as Artisan Furniture to package and ship products directly to their customers’ doorstep when an order is placed, relieving them of packaging, storage and shipping duties. This also lets them focus on other aspects of the business such as marketing, analysis and projections.
A major advantage of dropship is that sellers do not need to take massive risks in terms of capital and storage space to sell new, innovative but untested products. Pine has long been popular as a sturdy wood that lends itself well to handcrafting and carving. However, new collections such as Pine Jali are always likely to be at least a bit of a risk, albeit one with huge scope for revenue and profits. Drop ship, hence, is the answer.
Artisan’s drop ship programme allows you to let the drop shipper take all the risk and simply focus on marketing this new collection. All you need to do is place the pine products on your website and market them effectively. Emphasis the handmade nature of the products, with every piece being skilfully handcrafted by an artisan in north western India. We, as the manufacturer and supplier, ensure that the quality stays consistently high and every dropship and wholesale product is shipped with high quality packaging. All these characteristics should be emphasised and noted on your marketing drop ship material – only then will a drop shipping business based on pine furniture be successful.
The Pine range consists of sideboards, console tables, writing desks, media units, mirror frames and, of course, bedsides. Something for every part of the house. This is where another advantage of drop ship comes in. You don’t need to use your manufacturer or supplier to send you small batches of furniture at higher than wholesale prices in order to stock a wide variety, your dropshipper does all the hard work for you with stocking, packaging and shipping. You simply add the catalogue to your website and offer customers a wide choice without taking risks yourself.
