Dropshipping

ArgonDigital - enterprise automation experts

Many online merchants will sell products that they don’t actually carry in their inventory. When an order comes in for one of these products, the merchant will pass along order details, including shipment information, to the supplier/manufacturer who will then fulfill and ship the order to the end customer. This process is known as “dropshipping”. In some ecommerce solutions, the process of sending the dropship order to the supplier is entirely automated through EDI or API calls between the merchant’s ecommerce solution and the suppliers fulfillment solution.
