I am new here and so far have shortlisted a couple of dropshippers that I would want to work with. Though there are a few questions that I need help with:- Fulfilling minimum orders.
Notice that almost all wholesalers have a minimum order quantity, for example minimum order quantity of 10 pieces of any design, or $100. For this question, we will take minimum order quantity of 10 pieces as the example to use.
Though the thing is if I am going to sell the items on Ebay and on my own online shop, I will need the items to be posted out asap. Am trying to figure out how this will work.
The minimum order does it apply to each time I place an order to the wholesaler, or is it per month, or per week basis?
Can I specify 10 different addresses to post the the 10 items to?
If the minimum order is by per order basis, and I only manage to get 10 orders from Ebay and my website in a week, doesn't it mean that my clients will receive their orders much later? How do I overcome this then? What is the right way to do this?
I would like to start this as an additional income and do not want to carry any stock. Currently already have an existing ebay store, though would like to a new shop specialized in another category and using dropshipping.
Appreciate any information that you can provide to gain clarity in this matter.
