Drop Shipping with Baby Brands Direct

DROP SHIP POLICY

We do NOT supply businesses operating solely on a drop ship basis. This is a supplementary service to support ongoing stock orders.

Drop shipping our products is great way to increase the number of high value products you sell without having to outlay all your budget on stock and is also useful in the event you oversell an item.

Simply select the items you wish to promote and then when you sell an item we ship the product directly to your customer. We do not put any paperwork with the goods, we simply invoice you directly.

To apply use our dropshipping services, you must be an approved retailer with us first so please ensure you register with us and agree to our terms and conditions.

WE RECOMMEND…..

We recommend that you only use this service to promote high value items, for example Monitors or Furniture. Please note that some items (especially large items like cots) may take approximately 7-10 days for delivery and may be packed in more than one box and that the drop ship carriage charge is applied per box. We  require the customer’s phone number and full delivery address to deliver so remember to supply this at check out. 

WHAT NOT TO CHOOSE…..

Some items are sold in pack quantities, and are therefore not suitable for drop shipping. These items are clearly indicated on our website. Low value items are not not suitable for drop shipping, so we recommend these are ordered and held in stock by you.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT….?

Goods are dispatched with no paperwork, and an invoice is sent directly to you. Please ensure that your customer is available to sign for the goods, if the order is returned to us there is a £10 return fee imposed by the couriers on us which will be passed to you.

If goods cannot be delivered by our courier (either because no-one was at home or the wrong address details were given) and you wish for us to re-send the goods then we will charge you our carriage fee again to make a re-delivery.

PLEASE NOTE……

Although most items are held in stock, it is possible at the time you place an order we may be out of stock. We cannot give advance notification of when items wiill be out of stock as we often do not get advance warning from manufacturers ourselves.

Please do NOT drop ship outside of your country of registration with us. Drop Shipping of furniture in cartons is NOT available to retailers outside of mainland U.K. due to the size of the boxes which are not suitable for transit through regular couriers - such orders will be manually cancelled when observed and if slipped through our system could result in a £200 surcharge.

WHAT ARE THE COSTS TO YOU?

Our product price does not include the charge for shipping. Some larger items like cot beds, dressers and wardrobes will be charged per box, and only the first box will be calculated at check out for you (the rest will be added afterwards) and advised to you with the option to cancel. Carriage costs vary according to the delivery address supplied, so please refer to our shipping costs for more information on this. We do not ship to BFPO addresses.
