Oracle DropShip Process

Drop shipments are orders for items that our supplier ships directly to our customer.

Benefits of Drop Ship.

  • No inventory is required
  • Reduced order fulfillment processing costs
  • Reduced flow times
  • Elimination of losses on non-sellable goods
  • Elimination of packing and shipping costs
  • Reduced inventory space requirements
  • Reduced shipping time to your customer
  • Allows you to offer a variety of products to your customers
  • Items never physically pass through our warehouse, and therefore we do not pick, pack or ship them ourselves.

Drop Ship Process
