Detailed Review

Founded in the year 2004 and doing business as a registered entity in the state of Washington, DropshipDesign provides drop ship services to online resellers looking to establish themselves in the drop shipping industry, and caters to clients in the USA, Canada and the United Kingdom.

Basic Features

If you have your own ecommerce website or even an eBay store that you plan to use to drop ship products, then DropshipDesign's Basic Plan can be quite useful. The Basic Dropship account provides access to the full range of DropshipDesign's products. Members can copy/paste product descriptions and images onto their own website or online store. The company also sends order tracking information after you place an order for a particular product, so that both you and your customer can monitor the shipment.

eBay Wizard Tool

If you have an eBay reseller account, DropshipDesign's eBay Ad wizard tool takes allows you to automatically export product data onto your eBay account. Available as part of DropshipDesign's eBay Dropship Plan, the Ad Wizard lets you push products to your eBay store or auction directly from your drop ship account. This allows you to add products to your eBay store as well as manage your eBay auctions quickly and effortlessly.

Website Option and Features

If you've established yourself as a reputed reseller in the drop shipping industry, or simply prefer to have a personalized website to sell the products of your choice, then the Website Dropship Plan may be a good option. Under this plan, DropshipDesign provides members with a full-featured website that is pre-loaded with all of their products. You can select a domain name of your choice, as well as customize the website to give it the look and feel you want for your business. The website also includes a shopping cart that can accept orders as well as receive payments via credit cards or PayPal.

In addition to processing your orders, the plan also provides automatic product updates and the latest inventory status for the products you've selected. With the help of the store control panel you can change the prices of your products as well as add and remove items.

Dropship Datafeed

Along with full access to drop ship content information, DropshipDesign's Datafeed Dropship Plan allows users to import product data for as many as 500,000 wholesale products on any other website. The data includes information on the product, such as name, id, and description, as well as its price and quantity in stock. A URL path to the product images and a detailed page on each product is also provided. The data is updated on a daily basis and is available in simple text tab delimited files that are compatible with Microsoft Excel. Users can not only upload the product data onto their own website, but also to third-party websites such as Amazon, Turbolister, Shopping.com, etc.

Support and Reseller Resources

DropshipDesign provides a ticket based support system for its users. The company also offers live chat support between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. (PST). Phone and email support aren't available, though a comprehensive set of FAQs is provided to help answer common questions. DropshipDesign also runs a Newsletter service that provides marketing tips and product alerts, as well as a Blog that highlights the latest trends in the drop shipping and ecommerce industries.

Conclusion

DropshipDesign's basic plan provides fairly rudimentary features requiring members to manually export product data. While this may be appropriate for beginners, the eBay and datafeed programs provide some useful tools for those who have an eBay seller account or their own website. A website option is also available for those who are looking for end-to-end drop shipping solutions.
