About Drop Shipping
Dropshipping is a supply chain management method where the retailer does not hold stock. Instead, the retailer sends orders through to their supplier, either a manufacturer or a wholesaler. Whatever type of business they are they would have control over the stock and the warehouse.
What is the difference between dropshipping and wholesale?
Dropshiping is a method of selling where you do not have to hold any stock. Net1on1 acts as your warehouse, stocking the products and sending them out to your customer.
Wholesale is where you would buy stock from Net1on1, who would then send it to you. You would then be in charge of the stock and sending it out to your customer.
What are the benefits of dropshipping?
The main benefit of using a dropshipping model is that you do not have to invest in the stock. Net1on1 would have invested heavily in their stock levels, so you would have more cash to invest in marketing, and selling the products.
This gives you numerous benefits, such as:
- Not having to worry about a warehouse
- Not have to pay staff to ship the goods
- Not having to set up accounts with couriers
All in all, using a dropship model heavily frees up cash for you to focus on building your business.

How do I place a dropship order?
Placing a drop ship order is very straight forward, and all you need to do is log in to your account, and place an order as you would do on any other eCommerce store. Once you are in the checkout then you just need to add your customers’ address as the delivery address.
Alternatively, you can use our XML order importer which automatically creates orders from an XML feed.
Finally, if you use our WooCommerce API then you would be able to fully integrate with our website, and the order would be automatically exported into our system.
What products are available to dropship?
When you have created a dropshipping account you will have full access to our full catalogue. This means that you can sell all the products that we have in our catalogue.
If you have seen some products that we don’t sell but you think you could sell, then feel free to contact us and a member of our team will see if we can get these products in for you.
How do I pay?
Paying is very straight forward, and there are a few ways in which you can do it.
Popular payment options include:
- Bank transfer
- Credit or Debit Card
We also have a system for dropship customers called ‘Pay Later With Batch Pay’. This is a system that is designed for multiple daily orders. The orders are pulled through in our system as Pay Later With Batch Pay, which allows you to pay for all your orders together via any of the above payment methods.
Can I get a discount?
Unfortunately, we do not offer set discounts for dropshipping. This is because additional costs are surrounding singular pick and pack of orders, including packaging, picking and shipping.
Although you cannot receive a set discount, you will still benefit from products that have a sale price.
