Dropshippers are used to allow the store to calculate shipping from more than one location.  The Search Dropshippers page displays the dropshippers that are currently present in the store.  By default, the dropshippers are displayed by their SID (System ID).  A different method of sorting can be selected by clicking the up and down arrows in the heading of each column.
