Holiday closure schedule for Doba suppliers

Written by Jeff Allen on November 18, 2014 in Company News


Happy (almost) Holidays!  You’re sure to be feeling the stress anxiety that come with trying to fill an avalanche of orders as the holidays swing around this year.  Well, we’re hoping to help curb that stress a bit by giving you a heads-up on important dates with our suppliers.  

Many of the suppliers you buy from will be closing the day of, as well as the day after, Christmas.  However, we thought it would be best just to give you a list of all the suppliers who will be closing, and when, for the holidays.  We’d also like you to keep in mind shipping cut-off dates.  Orders need to be shipped by Dec. 15th to make it in time for Christmas.

Supplier updates: Wetterhorn, Sea of Diamonds, Baker and Taylor

Written by Jeff Allen on November 11, 2014 in Company News

We’ve had some recent changes to our marketplace, so read on to find out if any of your suppliers have updated/changed information about their products.

Accutech (Wetterhorn)

If you’ve found success selling the electronics/office supplies offered by Wetterhorn, you may want to take a peek at the new shipping rates offered by the brand Accutech.  With Christmas right around the corner, customers are going to be going into overdrive looking for a good deal, and Accutech offers just that.  Accutech is now offering $7 shipping on any order, no matter how large.  This means you can start planning for the big bucks as you ship at a low-cost fixed rate.  Utilize this new and awesome change as you give your customers a much better deal, as well as making more money for yourself. 

And as long as we’re on the topic of Wetterhorn, do any of you sell Verbatim brand products?  If not, you may want to jump on this little gem.  Well, more of a giant diamond, really.  Dropshipping is all about finding that right niche to sell your product to.  But more than just finding the right niche, you need to right product.  Namely, one that has a fairly good wholesale/MSRP margin.  Verbatim is a top-selling brand with huge margins, some as big as 50% or more.  Hot stuff for the holidays, to be sure.  If Verbatim’s products fit with your niche, or even if you just want to sell popular products, you might want to give Verbatim a shot.
