What is drop-shipping?
Drop-shipping is a process whereby you sell products without having to have them in stock and without having to ship parcels. Instead, you sell the products of a drop-ship supplier via your own online shop.
A customer visits your online shop and places an order for one or more products. You then place this order with EDC Wholesale. The products are collected in our warehouse, packed discreetly and sent directly to your customer. The parcel sent to your customer contains nothing relating to EDC Wholesale. During the order process, you have the option to choose another delivery address where you can enter the address details of your customer. EDC Wholesale then sends the items to your customer as soon as possible without any intervention required on your part.
