questions about drop-shipping on Abantecarte
« on: June 03, 2020, 01:06:46 PM »
Hi,

I am setting up a website selling t-shirts on Abantecarte and wondered if it supports drop-shipping.

Are there any extensions that would support this and if not, is it possible to use a different eCommerce platform that does while retaining my domain name? I don't really have any technical expertise so please keep it simple.

Thanks

Hello. Most drop shippers provide an CSV files with product data.
You can easily import any amount of products with AbanteCart import wizard

Once products imported configure your payment and delivery methods and you are ready to go online.

Thanks I will give that a go and let you know....

Update: I'm not sure this is right.

What I want is for customers to place orders on my website, which then sends the order details straight to my supplier so they can fulfill and send the order off. Perhaps I am mistaken but it seems to me that a csv file allows me to import data only. That is useful, but sending the order details to the supplier is the vital bit.

While this is an old post, it is what I would consider an important one. Drop shipping is popular, however, you want to be in a clear position between your supplier and the customer, this way you can manage orders, spot fraud and track your marketing. additionally, being the one to forward orders to your supplier means you can manage many different suppliers.
taking the few minutes each day to send the orders to the correct suppliers has way more benefits than what I listed.... But you remain in control and that is important to any successful business.
