Receive orders and increase sales from stockists & retailers for FREE
Hope you enjoyed reading our article regarding best practices on how to send orders to your suppliers
 
One of the recent trends that we are noticing is that retailers and stockists don't want to hold inventory. Many have brick & mortar and online stores, but they are worried about their inability to predict sales given frequently changing business conditions, so are hesitant to place orders with their suppliers. However, our clients are using  Order Fulfillment Guru to circumvent this hesitation by enabling their stockists and retailers to place dropship orders easily and thus increasing sales.
 
Here's how this works:
 
  1. Your retailer / stockist adds your products to their Shopify store (online and/or brick & mortar store (i.e. they use Shopify POS)
  2. When an order is placed via their store, the order is automatically routed to your Shopify store via Order Fulfillment Guru
  3. Order Fulfillment Guru can automatically apply discounts (i.e. wholesale order discounts). Orders can be created either as draft orders, pending orders (unpaid), or paid orders
  4. Optionally, you can send the retailer an invoice and they pay using your existing payment methods
  5. When you ship the order, the tracking number is automatically synced with your retailer's store
 
As you can see, this is really simple. You nor your retailer need to change your existing workflows. You canreceive dropship orders from your stockists or suppliers easily and for FREE. Hopefully this will help you drive more sales.
 
A couple notes:
  • You receive orders for FREE (i.e. received orders don't count towards your monthly quota)
  • Your retailer / stockist needs to be on Shopify
  • They will need to install Order Fulfillment Guru and select a plan
 
If you wish to get started, simply:
  1. Check out the video As a supplier, how to receive orders from merchants / stockists who are on Shopify?
  2. Add your retailers / stockists as Merchants in Order Fulfillment Guru
  3. Invite them
Hopefully this is helpful. Feel free to contact us with any questions.
