Hi @MaheenNayyer! Gabby here from the Community Engagement team at Spocket.
I think Dropship Helps provided a great resource to learn about dropshipping. To put it simply, dropshipping is meant to solve the issue of holding inventory and losses from the items in this inventory from not being sold. The process works like this:
In the context of dropshipping suppliers, I'd like to suggest a dropshipping app you can use once you get to setting-up your store. One of the best apps you can use for dropshipping is Spocket for mainly two reasons:
In my opinion, these are two great qualities your store should have when starting out! In any case, you can learn more about the platform and how it can help you with dropshipping on Shopify by visiting Spocket's official website. You can also join Spocket's official Facebook group to engage with other dropshippers to get feedback and ask for tips. All the best!
With ShipperHQ, you can manage shipping rates from multiple warehouses or dropship vendors. You can automate which origin certain products are shipped from, based on the fewest number of origins, origin nearest to a customer or zone restrictions for a given location.
You can also specify where a product is located, such as making all products available via all warehouses or only certain ones. The list goes on and on. You can read more about it on our blog here about multi-location shipping.
The best way to figure out your shipping strategy is by connecting with our sales team. They would be happy to discuss further and have experience working with thousands of different retailers big or small. You can also sign up for a free 30-day trial and see how ShipperHQ works for yourself.
