Making the case for drop shipping

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Inventory Source. All opinions are 100% mine.

E-tailing is the selling of goods and services on the Internet or through e-mail appeals. In this economy, many businesses can’t afford large staffs to ship goods, manage websites, and all other activities related to e-commerce. Many of these online merchants utilize Drop Ship Suppliers because they offer so many benefits.

A drop shipper is a company – or product merchant – that is willing to ship individual orders. One of the most trusted drop shippers is InventorySource.com.

If you’re an e-tailer who purchases products for resale, then you typically have to buy in bulk and have the items shipped to you. Then you have to ship the products to each customer. It’s a cumbersome process.

Not so with Inventory Source. This distributor will drop minimum shipping requirements and will ship directly to the customer. It also offers website hosting services. That means you can have a professional website filled with either your own products or drop ship products.

If you’re an overwhelmed, multi-tasking entrepreneur, Inventory Source will relieve you of the headaches associated with updating inventory, selling out of stock items, and finding true suppliers. This drop shipper can help anyone run e-commerce sales from a new website, an existing website, an existing blog, or even direct sales.

Take advantage of a full line of data services, such as:

  • Inventory and pricing management
  • Product loading and configuration
  • Reporting, tracking, and email management

Inventory Source stays a step ahead of the competition by offering automation of the inventory management process and supplier integration. That means you’ll find integration with all major marketplaces, including Ebay, Amazon, PriceGrabber, etc, and popular store platforms including Magento, Virtuemart, Yahoo Stores, Oscommerce, CRE Loaded, and Zencart.

Sell more…work less. Product sourcing by Inventory Source can save you time and and boost your profits.

Inventory Source (inventorysource.com)is NOT a drop shipper FYI...they simply give you the product data feeds FROM drop-shippers that they've partnered with...and you must also become a member of one of its affiliated dropshippers before you can even sell that line of products.. However Inventory Source IS amazing for they offer fully customizable data feeds for one of the drop-shippers that I use and their monthly fee is great which makes it VERY easy to import products into my e-store.

InventorySource.com is a great option....I used them at first to find legit wholesale product sources because I couldnt afford any of the lists and other directories. I started selling a few items from one of the suppliers, but then my supplier also recommended Inventory Source so I could more easily list more of their catalog. There are so many sacams and middleman services in drop shipping so it was nice to find a good service like this and also have my sales rep at the supplier also confirm their service.
