Drop shipping is when you sell products on your website that you do not physically carry. Another company holds the products and ships them when you receive an order for their item. Your company information is used on the packing slip and you keep your customer information.Book Bouquet has been drop shipping our gift line since 2005
. You add our products to your website, you receive a discount code for use when placing orders, you fill out and fax back our drop ship agreement and your resale certificate, and Book Bouquet fulfills and ships your orders using your company name and information on the packing slip.
Drop shipping allows you to offer more choices to your customers without stocking additional inventory, or adding staff. We are a second set of hands to grow your business
