Dropshipping in combination with own products

Hi, 

 

I want to start a webshop using Shopify but I want to know if I can combine dropshipping products and own products that I have in store? Products I have in store are most of the time hand made and so unique.

 

Could someone please tell me if it is possible to combine dropshipping and own products?

 

Thanks

 

best regards

Dylan

Hey @DylanB,

Of course you can. Each product is individual there's no limit on what type of products you can feature in your store. You can have a toothbrush and a car exhaust. It's all upto you 😄

Hi @DylanB ,

 

Yes, you can sell both dropshipping products and handmade products in the same store on Shopify. Start by determining the specific products you want to sell, including both dropshipping products and handmade items. This will help you establish a clear inventory and understand the range of products you'll be offering.

 

When adding product listings, ensure that you provide high-quality images, detailed descriptions, and accurate pricing for each item. This will help attract customers and provide them with the necessary information to make a purchase decision. To accommodate both dropshipping and handmade products, configure your shipping options accordingly. Set up shipping rates based on the supplier's location for dropshipping products, and determine rates for handmade products based on your own fulfilment process.

 

Managing inventory is crucial for both types of products. Keep track of stock levels and clearly indicate when a product is out of stock. You can also temporarily disable the listing until the item becomes available again.

 

Remember to transparently communicate to customers which products are dropshipped and which are handmade, providing clear information about shipping times, fulfilment processes, and any other relevant details to manage customer expectations effectively.
