Hi all.

I'm looking for a company that offers dropshipping services in the US.

Thank you.

forgive the ignorance - what is dropshipping? I have received several parcels from USA through their postal service but have not heard the term before now.

Dropship

I'll try to explain myself in english:

Suppose you're in Europe and you want to sell your products in USA via internet only. Shipping costs are just too high. But instead of shipping each product separately to each costumer, you ship all at once to a 'dropshipping' company in USA in one large package. The dropshipping company then ships each product separately to each costumer. You pay both shipments plus the dropshipping service, but the whole cost is much cheaper.

P.D.: Ryan, are you there?

Yep, we are here.

And yep, we still support our dropship service for products that we POD print.

If you had games printed elsewhere and we could get a reasonably small quantity of product "floored" for purpose of retail sales and for GOB Distribution when we launch that (in the spring), then I would be willing to provide dropship services on those goods also.

The problem is, we can't take pallet loads of inventory at once. Our commercial space for GOB Retail is, well, retail space. We don't have a "warehouse". We might next spring as we are looking to buy and mixed office/industrial building for GOB Publishing, but even that will come with some logistical problems, as the two companies are an hours drive away. So for the moment, I would say the most inventory we would want to or be able to keep on hand for dropship would be 50-100 units, depending on the size of the title.

Drop Shippers

We (DeLano Service) do it, but usually just for games we've printed. I think what you'll want to do is Google "Fulfillment". There's a company near us in Grand Rapids, Michigan that does it quite well. I think they're called Expert Fulfillment or Xpert Fulfillment. The Midwest is filled with fulfillment operations, however, because it's easy to ship to most major markets from here.

Thank you, gameprinter. I've done it, but most companies require a minimum amount of orders per year, which I cannot reach by now.

We don't have a minimum, but our storage charge is higher if we don't make the games. :)
