I've ordered stuff from places that I later found were drop-shipping, and it turned out to be a problem, because it was very unprofessional
And those that used good drop-shippers? You would never know.
That's the problem with drop-shipping. Their mistakes become your mistakes and reflect on your company.
Yet I have not seen a company proudly promote that they drop ship; and list all the advantages; as a marketing tool.
What advantages to the customer? That you have access to lots of stock from the drop-shipper? How is that any different from a company that has access to lots of stock from their shelf?
The advantages to drop-shipping are to the business and not really to the consumer.
