I am new to Shopify - I have used BigCommerce and Volusion in the past, but Shopify is all new to me. I am interested in creating a new store to carry products that I currently have in my own warehouse, but I also want to drop ship items as well. Am I able to do both in my Shopify store using Oberlo?
So for example:
Customer orders two products from my site. I personally ship Product A from my facility, but Product B is Dropshipped through Oberlo straight to my customer. Is this possible? Would it work like that with no problems? Anything else I should know before doing both straight retail and drop shipping in the same site?
Don here from Shopify!
You can definitely run a store where you sell drop-shipped products as well as products you fulfil yourself. :)
One thing to be aware of is that you would need a way to set up separate shipping rates for the drop-shipped products as opposed to the others.
Apps like this will need access to our carrier rates API, which can be added to any plan for $20 USD/month, comes as part of the Advanced Shopify ($299) plan or we can add it for free to any plan you choose to pay annually (in addition to the 10% discount on subscription fees for annual plans). :)
Check out those apps and let us know if you want to add the carrier rates add-on to your store by contacting us via our support site.
All the best!
