A client of mine would like to start a Shopify store but does not want to maintain any stock or warehouse of any sort. Their suppliers tend to be small producers of natural products.
So basically my client would like to dropship but would like their suppliers to implement the supplier end of the dropshipping workflow. Is there software or tools that these suppliers can use to implement this so that it automates the dropshipping process via Shopify for my client's store?
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas.
I'm the developer of Mothership. It sounds like I've built exactly what you're looking for. Mothership is a Shopify app that provides all of the product, order, and retailer management functionality so Shopify merchants can dropship products for other Shopify stores and 3rd party ecommerce sites.
Mothership tightly integrates with your existing Shopify store and business processes:
Mothership also comes with a companion app for Shopify-based retailers: Mothership Connect. This app handles the retailer's integration, making it easy for retailers to import your products into their Shopify store. When an order is placed with the retailer that contains a product you supply through Mothership, the app will automatically place the order with the end-customer's shipping information in your Shopify store.
Mothership is dropshipping on autopilot. If you have any questions about Mothership or would like a demo, don't hesitate to reach out to me at email@example.com
Actually, I'm (https://bohemian-brothers.com) one of those small retailer types that has been contacted by several dropship retailers about becoming one of their vendors. So I'm approaching this from the other side and am very interested in this thread. I've been researching how integrate and automate the dropshipping process across between shopify stores.
The Mothership link is not working. Mothership Connect link seems to be working though.
