JDS Dropshipping Program

What is Dropshipping?

Dropshipping or Drop Shipping is a tool allowing you to sell high-quality merchandise without having to stock inventory or ship the merchandise to your customers. You sell the products through your web site or catalog and once you receive an order, send the order and shipment information to JDS and we handle the rest. Since we stock the products in our warehouse, we are able to personalize, pack and ship the merchandise directly to your customer. You earn a profit on the difference between the low wholesale price and the retail price.
