An important aspect in the drop shipping business in clothing items is the support of the wholesale partner whom the retail drop shipper depends on for the supply of various designs of the clothes for the women. The wholesaler must be ready with enough stocks of the latest styles in women’s dresses and must be able to give them at wholesale prices to his drop shipping partner so their sales volume remain at least steady, if not increased. This way the drop ship retailer can give her customers big discounts in the clothe they choose to buy, especially if they buy in volume too. Some enterprising clothes buyers get many pieces of the clothing designs which they also retail further to office mates and friends, of course with some mark-up too.
Women are usually fond of buying clothes in bulk too, not necessarily for their own use but perhaps they have a set of friends who regularly check with them on what is in fashion for clothing. They normally buy their own dresses from this kind of clothes sub-retailer who may not necessarily have her own store but she just does her selling from a bag of clothes she always carries around. The psychology of women is such that they tend to believe in the advice of fellow women whom the regard as experts when it comes to women’s clothes.
So, a drop shipper who sells mostly online adds to her profit from the sales she makes offline to her friends and relatives who wait for her to give them the tips on what clothes to buy for a particular season of the year. It is therefore necessary that a drop shipper who operates her clothing business this way must get her clothes merchandise at wholesale prices from her wholesale partner.
Of course the wholesaler welcome these developments as it will mean that more of his clothing stocks will be sold. Even if he makes just a small margin on his drop ship partner, it will be acceptable to him because of the huge volumes of sales that ensue. A small profit on an individual clothing design multiplied many times over will end up as profits in the millions too.
