What is Retail Dropshipping?

Retail dropshipping is D2C fulfillment for orders placed on a retailer’s ecommerce website that get fulfilled directly by a supplier instead of by the retailer. Example: Target.com sells your product. ShipBob ships it to that customer.

For more information on what dropshipping is, read more here.

Note: EDI is only supported by ShipBob's US fulfillment centers and is not currently available in global locations (AU, CA, UK, EU).
