Dropshipping Program Pros and Cons

Artisan Furniture’s US Dropshipping Positives and Constraints

Dropshipping is a modern supply chain approach that allows you to work with dropshipping companies to have things delivered directly to your customers’ doorsteps when you purchase from them. Dropshipping, like any other kind of supply, has its own set of advantages and disadvantages, which we’ll go through here.

Dropshipping Positives

    2. Sign up in 60 seconds
    3. There are no monthly subscription fees.
    4. There is no minimum spend, either in terms of value or volume.
    5. There is no need to keep any stocks.
    6. Ability to concentrate on other parts of the company, such as marketing and promotion
    7. If you have a State Reseller Certificate Tax Exempt Certificate) we can ship goods to that State without any tax being added. If you are unable to present us with a Reseller Certificate for the State the goods are being shipped then we will have to add sales tax at the checkout
