Frequently Asked Questions
A: No, Dropship does not require a minimum opening order.
A: No, there is no minimum reorder for dropship.
A: Dropship does not have different discount levels, only one set price.
A: No, there is no freight cap for dropship. If you choose Tier 1 pricing, freight is built into that pricing by Melrose.
A: That depends. We do offer a suggested retail price for each item we dropship. It is up to the customer to ultimately decide on how they price
their items. We do suggest not to use the same mark-up price the customer would use in their store; the price will
be too high for online selling.
A: No, it is only what we suggest.
A: Yes. If there are further questions on this, please either forward to Rob or contact him via email. Can this go on my Net 30 account or do I need to use a credit card? The customer
may do either.
A: The customer may do either. At time of sign up both options will be presented.
A: Yes. Melrose Intl. typically uses FedEx, but the customer may use their own shipper.
A: A packing slip comes in the box. “Melrose Intl.” is not on the header of the slip.
A: No, the boxes are plain cardboard boxes that do not contain our business name.
A: For damages, the end consumer will need to contact the Melrose customer they purchased from. That Melrose customer will then need to contact us (Karrie) to
rectify the damaged goods. Melrose should never be in direct contact with the end consumer regarding dropship.
A: Typically, a damaged product on dropship is not picked up unless it is of high value or for another reason. Karrie needs to be contacted for drop ship damages,
and she will make the decision on pickups and returns. She will issue the credit at her discretion.
A: We have a 30-day return policy
A: In this situation we would typically do a replacement to the customer. Please contact Karrie for this situation.
A: Call our Melrose office. If the order has already been shipped and cannot be stopped, the customer may refuse the item/s.
A: No. You can dropship items to any zip code in the US.
A: We do not divulge that information due to the privacy of our customers. If someone would like further info on this, they would need to contact their rep. Their
rep would be able to guide them as to what others in their area have already purchased and what they are selling as
to not over-stimulate the area with the same products.
A: Yes. We do dropship for them.
A: The customer is. Please refer them to the IL Crt-61 form.
A: Our customer would need to rectify this issue/loss with the customer they sold or shipped to. We would not get involved.
A: No. They would need to take care if it externally. (Have the complete order shipped to them, at that point they can separate and send it on.)
A: 1-3 days. Please have them refer to the map on the back of their catalog for shipping info.
A: Dropship agreement/contract, credit sheet for possible terms, credit card form, and the Crt-61 form.
A: Typically, 1 day.
A: No, orders do not have to be placed on the website. Orders may be phoned in or emailed. Please try to have the customer order from the website. This is their best bet and the easiest as they can track orders, see what’s shipped, etc.
A: If the customer is credit card, they will be charged when order is processed. If they are on terms, we will email the invoice to the customer and they have 30 days from date of shipment to pay.
A: 1-2 days – depends on if the item is in stock
A: Yes. An email will be sent to the customer that includes tracking info with their invoice. The order may be tracked from beginning to end on the website as well.
A: No, they can monitor this on Solovue.
A: No, not unless there is a quality issue with the product.
A: No, not at this time.
A: Yes, This is a great opportunity for the customer to make it their own product and to advertise what they are selling to their audience.
A: The customer can just start with 1 item and go from there!
A: By logging into their drop ship account on the website. The customer can always call and ask or email if an item is in stock.
A: Yes. Please go to melroseintl.com/pictures
A: No. There is not a drop ship fee either. A great tag line would be “Currently we are setting up customers for free on this program!”
Not at this time.
A: Either by phone, email, rep or website. Website or rep is best!
A: The welcome letter has a link to all the items that we offer on dropship. All items are also on the website once the customer has logged in under their dropship account.
A: They receive the Intro Letter, Drop Ship Program agreement and all required paperwork that needs to be filled out in order to set up the account.
A: Tier 1 has shipping included in its price. Tier 2 does not. If the customer chooses Tier 2 as their pricing, they would need to utilize their own shipper. A selling point for Tier 1: The customer can advertise “free freight” to their customer when selling online since its already included in the pricing.
A: Yes! We encourage you to use any e-commerce solution you are comfortable with.
A: Whichever price the customer chooses. A word of advice though, the customer should not price their drop ship items as they do their in-store items. Inevitably the price will be too high and that may result in low sales.
A: No. You can drop ship anywhere, anytime, anyway!
