Becoming a Dropshipping Supplier / Manufacturer

My company currently manufactures and produces custom products for brick and mortar retailers.  We ship from Minnesota.  We also sell our items directly to consumers on our retail shopify website.  However, I would like to offer our services as a dropship supplier.  For example:  We design a custom item for Sue's Shopify Store and when she gets an order it comes automatically to us to produce and fulfill.  Does anyone know of the appropriate software to use that makes it easy for Sue to set up our item on her Shopify website?

Hi @OB 


You should create a shopify with your products to automated product import and order processing.

Hi @Dropshippinghelps,
Thank you for the suggestions. They seem like great solutions for setting up a store to sell items from existing manufacturers. My question is: Does anyone have knowledge of how to become one of the actual manufacturers that can be selected by Shopify dropshippers . And what software they use to manage the orders that come from all the dropshippers. Thanks!

Hi @OB, this is Larry from the Spocket team here!

Have you heard of the Spocket supplier program? The supplier program is an option for you to get your products in front of the eyes of over 50 000 retailers on the platform. It’s completely free for you to sign up to become a supplier and there are lots of different features that you can take advantage of to increase your sales as a dropshipping supplier. I recommend taking a look and hope this helps!

if you are concerned about software its not a big deal any developer will make a plugin for this in few bucks, but if are looking to market yourself in front of drop-shippers as a supplier then Larry has shared about Sprocket program which i think is quite helpful
