You often hear the terms ‘supplier’, ‘wholesaler’, ‘distributor’, and ‘manufacturer’ when talking about who is drop shipping. Simply stated, a drop shipper is a supplier who is willing to allow online stores to sell their inventory without purchasing any products upfront. A drop shipper is the one who actually stores, packages and ships the physical products to the end consumer. By this definition Doba is not a drop shipper. In fact, Doba is not a supplier, wholesaler or distributor either. Doba is a company that has online software, which aggregates and standardizes the product data from 100s of suppliers so that online retailers (people looking for products to sell) can instantly connect with Doba’s suppliers (the companies that drop ship their inventory) and resell their inventory.
Doba’s service also provides detailed reporting and analytics on the performance of suppliers within their marketplace using a Supplier Scorecard. Online retailers who source products with Doba can quickly see a supplier’s average ship time, fulfillment rates, RMA percentages, inventory update frequency, average quantity in stock, shipping method (UPS, FedEx, USPS, etc.), and details of their Return Policy.
Online Retailers who use X-Cart’s shopping cart platform to manage their ecommerce webstore store now have a simple way of exporting product data from Doba’s online catalog and importing that data into their X-Cart-powered webstore.
Doba is an industry leader in helping retail entrepreneurs and small businesses gain access to a consistent supply of wholesale, drop ship products to sell online. Doba simplifies product sourcing by providing access to millions of products, through a network of wholesale suppliers, distributors, and manufacturers. Products are consolidated into a single online catalog with images and descriptions, and then sold products are drop shipped directly to the customers. Doba’s service fills the gap between wholesale suppliers and manufacturers on one end and retailers on the other end by providing them with a common platform through which to conduct business.
