To save you even more time and hassle ensure that your supplier is going to handle the shipping process. This way you do not have to carry stock and your job becomes a lot easier. In fact going with a wholesale dropship supply partner means never having to spend hours at the post office or buying boxes and packing materials. The items are then shipped direct to the buyers address within a couple of days of payment being received.
