Australian Retailers That Offer Drop Shipping

If you want to start an online business selling goods, but don’t have a lot of room for stock, nor much money to buy stock, I suggest you try Drop Shipping.

Drop Shipping is where you advertise a product, sell the product to the consumer, then the supplier delivers the goods directly to the consumer. You don’t need to mail it out or worry about shipping and can just take the cut of the profit. As easy as this sounds, be careful. Choose companies with a good reputation that has previous experience in Drop Shipping. You don’t want to sell a product to your customers and not have the item arrive, nor do you want to work with a company that may offer comparable rates but are very difficult to communicate with.

 

Advantages to Drop Shipping:

  • Profits on products are usually around the 20% plus mark.
  • No outlay for stock
  • No storage of stock
  • No handling of stock

Negatives to Drop Shipping:

  • One thing you really have to consider with Dropshipping is that your postage time will be significantly longer than if you posted the item directly from Australia.  You don’t want to get cranky customers demanding their money back a week or two after ordering if that is how long it will take their product to reach them.  So either disclose that you are a drop shipper, or make it clear on point of sale your delivery times.
  • Unreliable suppliers

Finding a decent list of reputable drop shippers in Australia has been hard to find in the past, but I have collated a list for you!  Tell them we sent you!

How to Set Up a Dropshipping Store

Good news is that Shopify now has an e-commerce platform that you can set up for Dropshipping!  Not many other e-commerce platforms offer the drop shipping option.  So when starting up your online store – certainly look at Shopify to get started – it will save you loads of heartache later on!

Once you have a Shopify store, you sign up for various apps that link you to dropshipping providers.  Although these apps are fantastic and make it easy for you to start a dropshipping business in literally hours, some of them have a monthly cost.  The good thing is that most have a free trial period too – so give them a try – just don’t forget to switch them off if they aren’t working for you.

Major Drop Shipping Companies:

These are major Dropshipping companies that work with Australia that focus just on dropshipping and offer a multitude of products. The only thing with the major drop shipping companies is that you usually have to become a member to see all of their products – however, they are legitimate (well these ones are!) – but always do your homework first before parting with any cash!  Plus professional drop shipping companies will also take a small percentage of every sale for their services – BUT the advantage with using these companies is that you have access to literally millions of products instead of a limited range.
