Challenge

Drop believes that the best way to make a good product is to tap the knowledge and ideas of passionate people. There are many challenges for Drop but the main pain point is fulfilling products to their community quickly because customer’s taste is changing day by day and the community can drive complicated designs.

Solution

By using Shipkoo’s eCommerce origin fulfillment model, Drop has been able to save both time and costs. Origin fulfillment reduced the amount of time that customers spent waiting for the product. Instead of sending a regular flow of goods to Drop’s warehouses in the US, Shipkoo sends the shipment directly from fulfillment centers in China as soon as it receives an order. End-to-end service enables customers to spend less time waiting for inventory in a US warehouse and then resending it to the customer.
