Urnaments LLC has just announced to all their vendors, large and small, that future orders can now be made directly through their website.
Moving forward, drop shipping and cross referencing orders will become a thing of the past.
"Drop shipping has become a dirty word," says Michael Martino, President of Urnaments LLC. "When potential vendors asked me if I do it, I said, "Of course." But I got the feeling that some of them had been burnt by drop shipping. So I looked into it."
Drop shipping is the ever growing delivery practice where retailers do not carry physical stock, but rather "virtual stock." Once the order is placed with the retailer OR online store (even the big ones that need no mention) the order is transferred to the party who actually possesses the goods to ship..
Mr. Martino says, "In today's Cyberworld, I found that anybody can claim to be a "drop shipper" and many clever people are making a good living being brokers this way. Here is how it works. Drop shipper X tells Store Y that they have the goods to sell to Consumer Z. Store Y takes the Credit Card information and then directs Drop Shipper X to ship........only to get an e-mail from Consumer Z weeks later complaining that they never received their purchase."
"I lost an account with a major league online catalog company because I could not convince them that I could keep up with their orders," Mr. Martino continued. "Imagine my dismay. Having too many orders to keep up with, what a happy problem that would have been. From that experience came my invention, "Online Streamline.'"
Online Streamline, as explained by Mr. Martino, is where each street side retailer or online vendor is given their own personal Coupon Code, ABC-1 for instance. They then direct the customer seeking to purchase a keepsake urn or pet urn. to Urnament's website. When they insert the Coupon Code at CHECKOUT, they will enjoy a discount (generally 10%) and the vendor earns a retail commission fee. And if we don't have it, Mr. Martino added, they will IMMEDIATELY know it.
"The only setback," continues Mr. Martino, "is that the vendor is held to my price point structure instead of their own, which may be more or less. I like Online Streamline, however, because I have a brand name to protect and with that comes the responsibility of setting an MSRP."
In a world where Facebook is looking to showcase unique products like pet urns and Urnaments to its plus nine hundred million members - where social media has thousands of new small online businesses hanging up their "OPEN FOR BUSINESS" shingle every day - Online Streamline will be the next logical progression to safeguarding and servicing the consumer responsibly and promptly.
Urnaments LLC was founded by Michael C. Martino in 2010. All engineering / prototyping / designing of the Urnament was completed in November, 2011. Urnaments were designed for the growing market of people seeking to commemorate their departed loved ones and pets in a more heart warming and expressive way. By matching their decorative appeal with an eyelet at the top, Urnaments can displayed on a Christmas tree or anywhere else in the home.
