Drop-Shipping means buying products cheaply from a secret low-priced source, and then your supplier - not you ,does all the work of packing the goods and sending them to your customer.At iPartsBuy,you will find that Drop-Shipping is great system that enables you to take money directly from the low cost source in china.
Normally, when you buy from wholesalers, you have to buy in large quantities.But Drop-Shipping from iPartsBuy.com , you get low prices even on small quantities. You sell products in your online store, and we ship the products directly to your customers from our warehouse in China. You can focus on selling without worrying about quality control, stock, packing, and shipping.
When you order, it will help us if you put "Drop-Shipping to customer" in the shipping comments. We always check carefully (for fraud prevention) if the shipping address is different to the billing address, so if you are a new drop-shipping customer we may need to email or phone you to verify before processing the order.
We do not include iPartsBuy Shop publicity materials / invoices etc when we send drop ship goods, so it protects your reputation as a seller. They will not know the true source of the goods, and they will not know the price you paid.
The prices shown on the shipping invoice will be different to what your customer paid you. However if your customer asks you can point out that these are values for customs declaration only. In any case a lower price declared helps reduce ad-valorem duty or sales taxes that your customer may have to pay when receiving imported goods in certain countries. Please check about importing / tax regulations before your start drop-ship selling, and always keep your customers informed.
If your customer has technical support issues, or wants to return a product, they will have to discuss this with you first because it's your account with iPartsBuy Shop.
If there are import taxes to pay, you usually have to pay this when you receive the goods from the courier. So if you're drop shipping, that's your customers who may 'unexpectedly' have to pay 'extra charges'.
It's your responsibility as the iPartsBuy Shop buyer / drop shipping vendor to find out information about taxes and inform your customers. iPartsBuy Shop accepts no responsibility whatsoever for providing tax information relevant to your country, although of course we will do whatever we can to help you minimize the tax burden if you have special packing/ declaration instructions.
