San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 27, 2008
Shopster.com, a leader in e-commerce business tools, now offers a dropship product sourcing package. Shopster Product Source provides sellers on sites like eBay with listing tools and access to more than one million products to complement their current business. Online dropshipping, which is a type of direct-to-consumer fulfillment, is quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to do business on the Internet.
"Our two powerful business solutions allow our customers to choose the one best suited to their unique business requirements," said Sarath Samarasekera, CEO of Shopster. "Shopster e-Commerce - our flagship product - is the benchmark for online retailer solutions, and it allows our customers to compete successfully in the global retail marketplace. For our other customers - the eBay PowerSeller, for example - they want a solution that gives them products to sell and tools to list on eBay, and that's what Shopster Product Source does for them."
Subscribers to the Shopster Product Source can source inventory from more than 130 dropship suppliers. This inventory is available through an easy-to-use online warehouse. Rather than worrying about managing numerous supplier relationships, their subscribers can work with all the dropship suppliers through Shopster. Subscribers can also create eBay listings for these products and sell them to their customers directly from their Shopster account. Once a product is sold, Shopster works with dropship suppliers to send the product directly to the consumer. The Shopster subscriber never has to worry about inventory or shipping the products.
"On top of the cost and risk of carrying inventory, an expensive and difficult task for many sellers, is being able to create and maintain trustworthy and reliable supplier relationships," added Samarasekera. Shopster leverages their growing subscription base to source better products at better prices for sellers. "A retailer can try to forge relationships on their own, or they can take advantage of the negotiating power that comes along with Shopster's community of users."
Matt Cox, Shopster's Chief Product Officer and co-founder, credits the success of Shopster to its ability to predict and respond to the needs of a growing subscriber base. "Shopster Product Source is the direct result of keeping in touch with our users," said Cox. "Since 2004 we've been building features and growing our product offering because our retailers let us know what they want." When it became apparent that subscribers were listing Shopster-sourced products on eBay, for example, Shopster developed an eBay compatible application to facilitate the listing process. "Once we saw that our current users and visitors wanted increased eBay integration, we set out to become as integrated as possible."
Now an eBay Certified Solution provider, Shopster is one of only 30 companies world-wide to be a part of eBay's Certified Provider Program. "With our eBay certified engineers working on it, subscribers can rest assured that Shopster Product Source will meet and exceed their eBay needs," added Cox.
