Consignment VS Dropshipping

2018年11月15日

In recent years, with the improvement of the logistics system, the concept of consignment has gradually entered people's field of vision. What is the logistics of delivery? Subcontracting refers to the act of acting as an agent in order to help sales to be completed in order to satisfy the sales convenience of the other party in the economic life. The shipper and the seller are separate, ie they are not the same entity. For example, Party A is the supplier and Party B is the seller.


Party A authorizes Party B to sell Party A's products, and Party A substitutes for Party B's shipment. Party B is only responsible for sales and service work.


The characteristic of this model is that the consignee does not need to bear the purchase risk, zero cost, zero inventory, and the online shop consignee does not need to pick up the goods. Delivery is also handled by the supplier. Because of this feature, many Taobao companies will choose this way to carry out their own business. This feature is similar to the dropship beauty products model. Drop shipping is a foreign trade term. It refers to retailers who do not need merchandise inventory. Instead, they obtain product information directly from the supplier and hang it in their own online shop. After the customer places an order, they provide the customer's order and shipping details. Suppliers, suppliers send the goods directly to the end customer. Retailers earn the difference between wholesale and retail prices. Therefore, Drop Shipping can be understood as a direct shipment, delivery and distribution.


The biggest feature of Drop shipping is that it does not need to manage inventory, but it is not restricted by the region, and it is not limited by product category. Taking Amazon as an example, a novice seller can only look for products with the same product after finding a product that can be bought in Amazon, and supports a supplier that can provide it. Once one day can no longer continue to sell, at any time you can list the product off the shelf, and do not have to worry about the impact of the inventory of products sold with slow sales affect inventory turnover.


Now, with the rise of cross-border e-commerce industry, many people have invested in the cross-border e-commerce industry. However, many small sellers may be trapped in the lack of their own funds or resources to carry out large-scale commercial activities. dropshipping uk mode meets the needs of many small sellers.


With the rise of cross-border e-commerce, a large number of cross-border e-commerce distribution platforms have emerged in the country, such as Seller Toor, sinogoodies, and so on. Faced with a large number of cross-border e-commerce distribution platforms, many people do not know how to choose, they say that the product is king. So the product quality must be strictly controlled, otherwise it may have irreversible adverse effects on their own shops, and will also bring their own Lots of trouble with pre-sales. A sound and mature distribution platform is a rare resource. If we can find such a platform, it will be very helpful for our cross-border e-commerce business.


As a global distribution platform, Chinabrands has a comprehensive multilingual customer service system with a product quality inspection rate of up to 100%, nearly 50W product SKUs (updated every day). Logistics network covering more than 200 countries and regions. This attractive trait is attracting more and more people to use it.

How to Holiday-Proof Your Ecommerce Shop

Some experts are predicting a 15% year-over-year (YoY) increase in online sales over the 2017 holiday season. Several factors are expected to play into this growth, including the surge of mobile shopping and voice search, anticipation of heavy discounting, and a thriving economy. With a 3% GDP growth rate expected to round out 2018, consumer sentiment is nearing early-2000s levels. Each of these elements position online retail to thrive during the Q4 holiday season, making it essential for online retailers to ensure they have streamlined operations and processes in place to withstand heavy volume.

Here are several factors for merchants to consider for an optimal 2018 holiday season.

Mobile Checkout Needs to be on the Nice List

With mobile accounting for over half of online transactions, optimizing your site for mobile wholesale laptops shopping is a no-brainer, especially during the holidays. Mobile apps have a major stake in the game, with in-app transactions experiencing a 30% YoY increase. More importantly, that number increases for omnichannel retailers that actively promote their app; those retailers see mobile purchases accounting for up to 65% of their transactions.

What does this mean for retailers? Mobile is increasingly becoming the preferred way to shop—and pay. Online and omnichannel merchants should consider the following tips during the holidays to optimize for mobile:

Be finger-friendly: optimize buttons and scrolling for fingers rather than for a mouse.

Simplify checkout: consider breaking checkout into multiple, easy-to-use pages rather than a long, scrolling form.

Provide essential info: empower customers by providing all the info they need on product pages, including original and sales prices, size chart, good product photos, return policies, user reviews, inventory available, and promotional information.

Be bigger, brighter: CTAs, text, form fields, and other page elements should be big enough for a finger tap and legible enough to read on a small screen. Elements that are too small can lead to cart abandonment.

Payment Gateway

Ecommerce merchants understand that payment gateways are necessary to process online transactions; however, having the right gateway is critical during the busy holiday season. Working with a trusted payment processor that offers a PCI-compliant gateway can ensure that transactions are processed safely and securely, even when volume spikes during the busy holidays. Some payment gateways also enable encryption, so customers’ sensitive account information is coded and protected as it’s sent through the credit card network. Tokenization is another popular security mechanism offered, which replaces private payment data with a token that has no value on its own and can’t be exploited if somehow stolen.

Merchants are advised to use a payment gateway provided by a reputable payment processor that also offers 24/7 customer service. This can be helpful if errors occur or an issue arises with transaction processing. Merchants shouldn’t be left hanging if the payment gateway experiences issues during the holiday rush.

Fraud Tools

One area merchants should avoid skimping on is fraud prevention. As waves of consumers come out (and log on) to make a lot of holiday purchases, bad actors are lurking in the dark corners of the web looking for vulnerabilities to exploit. Fraud spikes during the Q4 holidays, making unprotected merchants a prime target.

Merchants should always implement authentication protocol and fraud prevention tools:

Address Verification System (AVS): This protocol checks the cardholder’s address and zip code against the same information on file with the card-issuing bank. A mismatch raises a flag, allowing the merchant to contact the customer to verify additional information or to decline the transaction.

Card Verification Value 2 (CVV2): This process asks the customer for the three- or four-digit security code on the back of the card. Asking for this number helps merchants confirm that the person attempting to make the purchase is in possession of the actual card.

3D Secure 2.0 (3DS2): This updated protocol allows consumers to directly authenticate with the card issuer for online transactions. It provides an additional security layer to prevent fraudulent purchases via online credit and debit cards.

Chargeback Management

Chargebacks also spike during and after the holidays, for several reasons. With cases of true fraud where a cardholder’s payment data is stolen and used to make fraudulent purchases, retailers see an influx of those cardholders reporting the fraud to their issuing banks. This initiates the chargeback process, which costs merchants in time, lost merchandise, shipping costs, fees, and fines.

Another reason for increased chargebacks is “friendly fraud.” This less malicious but equally costly type of chargeback happens when a customer has confusion about a purchase and disputes the purchase with the issuing bank. In some instances, a customer may have forgotten about an individual purchase during the holiday rush and gets confused. In other instances, a customer may not recognize the billing descriptor (merchant information ) on their monthly statement. In yet other cases, a customer may be trying to purposely defraud the store by reporting the item never received or damaged. When that happens, the issuing bank may yield to the customer if the merchant has not kept good records or shipping/delivery receipts.

Whatever the cause, chargebacks are a serious problem. Merchants should talk to their merchant account providers/payment processors about additional chargeback prevention tools they can implement during the holidays. Having a strong customer service presence can also negate chargebacks; customers who feel heard and who are able to adequately receive support for their questions and issues will be more likely to resolve issues with the merchant directly rather than to dispute a charge.

Boost Your Conversions

5 Ways to Help You Boost Your Conversions on Instagram

Instagram isn’t just for sharing selfies, brunch photos and cute pics of your cats. This popular social media platform can actually drive sales for your wholesale fashion jewelry business. In fact, according to a study of 2,000 Instagram users by Dana Rebecca Designs, 74 percent of millennials surveyed, 63 percent of Gen Xers and 54 percent of baby boomers said they had made a purchase based on Instagram.

Still, if you have an ecommerce business, you can’t just slap a photo up on Instagram and expect to make a bunch of money. So, how can you improve your posts and convince users to buy your product? Here are a few simple tips to help you become a selling-sensation on Instagram.

Create a business account.

If you haven’t switched your regular Instagram account into a business account, you’re missing out on a ton of features that will boost your conversions. Not only are you able to measure your results and learn more about your followers and what types of posts they like but you also get features that are designed for selling. For instance, business accounts have the ability to add a link to their Instagram Stories so that users can “swipe up” to buy.

Standard Wines uses the “swipe up” Story feature to lead its followers to its website to shop.

Some 15 percent to 25 percent of Story viewers,, according to the Brandwatch blog,swipe up to follow a link and engage directly with a brand’s website. That’s a ton of potential new customers you can attract using this convenient and engaging feature. Don’t forget, though, that not everyone is aware of the feature, so occasionally include a call-to-action telling people to swipe up to buy.

Add a link in your bio.

Not only does your post need a stunning image, but it also needs a caption that will speak to your audience members and a call to action to lead them to take your desired action. If you want to increase conversions on Instagram, tell people where to go and what to do next -- don’t leave it up to them to guess.

Instagram doesn’t allow you to place links in your posts (only in your stories if you have a business account), but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a call to action. Add a link to your website in your Instagram bio and remind people in your posts to check out your website by clicking on the link in your bio.

Use Instagram Live.

Instagram Live is a great strategy to use if you want to boost your sales. Instead of just posting a photo of your product on Instagram, you can use Instagram Live to show off your product in action.

Sephora uses Instagram Live to show off what it sells. It does live demonstrations of the product so that make-up fans can see exactly what they’re getting before they buy, which helps ease the mind and makes it easier for them to click that “Add to Cart” button.

Instagram Live is also a great way to connect with your followers and customers. Users can comment and ask questions in real-time, which helps them build a trusting relationship with your brand. The more users feel connected to you, the more likely they’ll be to become a customer.

Run Instagram retargeting campaigns.

Many wholesale watches businesses are missing out on the opportunity to convert users who previously visited their site and expressed interest but left without buying. Usually, those potential customers would be lost forever, but with Instagram retargeting, you can “follow” those users who abandoned you and show them targeted ads on Instagram to convince them to return.

Not only does Instagram retargeting keep your brand top of mind, but it allows you to show highly-specific ads to users at the perfect time. For instance, if a visitor is browsing the shoe section of your website, but leaves without buying, retargeting can follow that user to Instagram and show him or her an ad for your shoes. Instead of users abandoning your site, or their carts, for good, they’ll be reminded to return to you and place an order.

Share user-generated content.

Connecting with Instagram influencers is an awesome way to show social proof and increase conversions. But, if you want a completely free social proof strategy to drive sales that’s just as effective, share user-generated content.

Secret Wood, a handmade jewelry company, regularly reposts photos from happy customers showing off their beautiful new piece.

When you share photos from your satisfied customers, other users on Instagram who were previously curious, or perhaps hesitant, will be more willing to buy from you after seeing how others are using and enjoying your product. Bonus: Your customers will love that you featured them on your Instagram; just be sure to give them appropriate credit.

Over to you

Now that you know how to rock Instagram with posts that convert, this social media platform will be your new favorite place to win sales. Don’t wait any longer; start using Instagram now and watch users and followers transform into loyal and frequent customers.
