Why you should consider dropshipping in Australia?

 

While there is so much rave about starting an online drop shipping business in Australia, here are some of the most prominent reasons to get started now:

 

  • Ecommerce sales are expected to boost by 21% in 2018.

  • By 2021, the entire e-commerce industry is expected to be worth a staggering $15.44 billion

  • With increased incomes and better spending habits, an average Australian spends around $2100 AUD annually, which is expected to increase with the passage of time.

 

Why dropshipping is a safer way to sell online?

 

It all boils down to the costs of running an ecommerce store. In an ecommerce store, the merchant purchases inventories and sells it at a higher price for generating profits. This is becoming an increasingly difficult and costly business model for many Australians. Instead, the drop shipping model in Australia is gaining traction because you don’t have to buy any product unless the customer has bought it from you. The manufacturer directly ships the product on your behalf, thereby eliminating high costs of purchasing and shipping and/or storing products.

 

Dropshipping in Australia has become a more viable business model than running an ecommerce website because you are able to keep tabs on your costs, time, and shipments.

 

 

Our premium dropship service is currently only available for businesses located in Australia. We hope to get our international arm up and running early next year. But if you're a local - and want to sell to the locals, we're the one.

There's no subscription costs or monthly fees. All you need to do is apply for our program and you can get started selling in seconds. Literally.

Our system has proven to make selling online super easy for anyone.

 

Colourblocker has been offering drop shipping services to merchants selling on their own websites as well as on eBay, Amazon, Etsy, Trademe, and several online sales channels. Recently, a number of our merchants have started seeing incredible results of selling via Facebook and Etsy too.

 

Our system allows you to easily place orders on our site, and ship them directly to your own customers - almost anywhere in Australia. 

 

The Colourblocker drop ship service enables you to make money by using our incredible sourcing talent, offering our products to your customers, at the retail price of your choice, shipped directly  - under your own business name. There's no MOQ (minimum order requirement) and therefore no investment is required on your part for buying stockpiles of inventories.

 

We handle the orders, sourcing, and shipping. And that's of some of the most unique, and coolest products online. We also provide a wholesale and promtional product sourcing service too for corporate companies.

You purchase products from us, and we supply these directly to your customers, on your behalf.

 

With the drop-ship services from Colourblocker, you get low prices even on small quantities. You’ll receive the best prices and service so you can pocket the difference between wholesale prices and retail prices and you have no inventory to hold or finance and no shipping hassles.

In addition to the wide range of products we provide, we're also able to offer on demand sourcing for products you're looking to dropship and sell online. As a result, if you are unable to find what you’re looking for, and would like to offer these products on your own website, just contact us - we will most likely be able to offer it to you in no time.

How does drop shipping actually work?

Drop shipping is a simple process that takes away the hassles of running an online business, away from you. Before you get into this model, it is important that you understand what is dropshipping and how does it work.

 

Take a look at the following steps:

 

  1. You register and apply for an account with us.

  2. After approval, you access a list of products via our feed.

  3. Select what you want to sell and upload to your website, Shopify or Etsy store.

  4. Your customer orders a product on your website.

  5. You collect the payment from your customer at your retail price.

  6. You place a drop ship order at Colourblocker with your customer shipping address and only pay our wholesale discount price and pocket the difference.

  7. We ship your order under your name to your customer.


 

To put it in a scenario, let’s suppose that Mr. X ordered some items for $100 AUD. You collect $100 AUD in payment, and buy the product at wholesale rates from Colourblocker, which could range from anywhere in between $40 to $70. We ship the product to your customer on your behalf. Mr. X receives the product from you and is now a happy customer. In the end, the profit you have made on this sale is:

 

$100 AUD - $ (40 to $70 wholesale price) AUD = $30 to $60 AUD

What is zipPay, and how can it reduce risk?

zipPay is like a credit card service for dropshippers. If you don’t have money, use zipPay to "sell now, sell more, and pay later" for all of our products available to drop ship. zipPay is an easy way to enable more and more dropshippers to buy products and drop-ship interest free form us - and ship to customers without having to worry about lack of capital and shipping delays.
