Dropship Fulfillment Software for Telecom

In-Store Sales Don’t Need In-Store Inventory

In telecom, the retail space is small but the demands are larger than life. Dropship extends the capacity of in-store storage to offer telecom customers exactly what they want. An integration with fulfillment vendors lets your store close every sale, no matter if a product is in-store or not. Direct vendor-to-customer shipping ensures shoppers get what they want with no delay from unnecessary shipping stops.

Extend your product line capacity

Customers know how much variety is on the market, so when a store can’t offer what they want, they’ll go elsewhere. Dropship opens access to a digital library of virtual products for purchase so your store never has to turn down a sale.

More to offer with lower risk

While customers value a wide product offering, hosting that many SKUs isn’t viable for any telecom retailer. Reduce the risk of stale inventory with per-order shipping so you're never over-stocked and the customer is never left empty-handed.

How it Works - 1
Customer Order

Your customer decides what they want to purchase through an Endless Aisle touchscreen or directly at the POS.

No item is out of reach

High margin may mean more revenue but the cost of high-priced products sitting in storage isn’t worth the risk. Virtual inventory means a luxury offering without paying a luxury cost. Dropship makes telecom dreams come true. 

Inventory analytics for a smarter sale

Some telecom products just aren’t worth their weight in storage space. Insight into return rates helps you understand which products are found wanting. Removing these less desirable items can save your store time and money.

FAQ

What is the difference between Endless Aisle and Dropship?

At iQmetrix we define Dropship as the shipping integration directly to your vendors while Endless Aisle is the customer facing, interactive touchscreen showcasing all of your virtual products and specs. 

What if I don’t work with any of your current Dropship Vendors?

Let us know who you’re working with. We are always adding new vendors to our to our elaborate partner ecosystem. We also have the ability to use our external APIs to build custom integrations to your manufacturers or shipping warehouses. 

In this ordering process, who is paying the shipping cost?

The shipping fees associated with orders are based on the zip code or postal code. We typically recommend that you do offer a free shipping option for the customer, so that you don’t have to turn them over to Amazon or another online retailer who offers free shipping. However, the customer does have the option to pay for expedited shipping, if they’re interested. Ideally, this would be the only time where a customer would pay a shipping cost. There may be some cases where there isn’t a free shipping option, depending on your retail location, the customer’s delivery location, or based on the item itself. 

Is it possible for customers to cancel the order once it is in the process?

Once an order is placed, it is sent to the vendor in real-time so they can pick, pack, and ship that order as quickly as possible. Because of this streamlined process that focuses on efficient shipping, it is not possible to cancel an order in process. What you can do is contact the vendor and try and cancel that order on the customer’s behalf. We also have an Order Management screen in Hub that allows you to have insight into those orders and access to tracking information to help you provide a great customer experience. 

How can a Dropship item be returned?

Does the customer bring the item in-store, or ship it back to the distributor? There is a setting in RQ that allows you to accept Dropship refunds. While some clients have decided to enable returns and others have not, we do recommend that you allow in-store returns. This helps you get the customer back in-store and creates the opportunity to help the customer find a more suitable product for an exchange, or provide a great experience by helping them return their undesired item. 

What is Smart Shipping?

During a Dropship transaction, the customer details are entered into the POS. This prompts ab automatic calculation of shipping options with prices the customer may choose from.

Can customers track their Dropship purchase?

Customers receive an email confirmation of their purchase right after the transaction is complete. They will also receive tracking information so they can be ready for their purchase when it arrives.
