Drop Shipping by Global Crafts

We are proud to have relaunched our Drop Shipping service under the Drop Shipping by Global Crafts brand. At Global Crafts we see ourselves as a tool for producer partners to connect with consumers and we see drop shippers as an important piece of that puzzle.

Drop shipping is a supply chain management technique in which the retailer does not keep goods in stock but instead transfers customer orders and shipment details to Global Crafts, who then ships the goods directly to the customer. We do what we do best, the fulfillment side and you get to do what you do best, marketing and social media to grow sales. Over the years Global Crafts has battled with the question of whether Drop Shipping is something we should support, which led to a scenario where  we did service drop ship accounts but not well. In 2013 I wrote an article for the Fair Trade Federation on Drop Shipping. The piece was very critical of drop shipping as a model. In retrospect we feel that as a model it can succeed but only with developed systems and a team that embraces the concept.  With the launch of our new platform, we believe we are that team.

Drop Shipping by Global Crafts provides drop shippers with the tools they need to succeed. We welcome drop shippers working on any platform, but we have developed a set of tools and approaches that makes drop shipping on the Shopify platform simple.  These include:

  • A daily inventory files that can by synced via an app
  • Two versions of the product files formatted for Shopify
  • Access to images for marketing
  • Help and support documents
  • Videos demonstrating setup to SEO
