How Do I Handle Shipping? Dealing with Freight and High-Ticket Drop Shipping Suppliers
I will be covering FAQs that have to do with high ticket drop shipping.
I will talk about how do I handle shipping. It is important with high ticket drop shipping that you understand this process clearly because shipping is going to be a big deal everyday basis once you start getting orders all the time.
When you first get into this business, you won’t probably have any experience with dealing with freight carriers, after the first month, you will have lots of experience. When you first get started, just understand you want to always make sure that your supplier ships the product out on their freight account if possible.
If you are selling big products, they are going to be using Freight. A lot of products in high ticket drop shipping are big so you are going to be dealing with freight. If you happen to find a smaller product then they can use UPS or FedEx which they are going to ship out on their account.
Some suppliers don’t ship it using their accounts for some reason. If you have to get your own accounts, make sure you are using reputable carriers. You should also be using freight brokers or freight forwarders. These are agents that will be able to find you the best price and the best quality. One of them that I can recommend is Global Trans.com and UniShippers.com.
These freight forwarders often have a dealer account with them so that they can get a discount on the pricing. It could be 50% off or charge you the retail price or a discount of about 10% - 20% off.
Always use your supplier’s account if possible. I would say 80% of suppliers would allow you to do that. It might take a little time but the cool thing about it is you will save effort, money, and if there is a loss, the supplier will take care of that.
