A dropshipper is a manufacturer or wholesaler that supplies and ships merchandise.

Customers place orders through the retail store, which forwards a notification to the dropshipper, which then ships the purchased items directly to the customer, without the products ever passing through the retail store.

If a store's product line includes any items that are shipped from a location other than the store's primary address, the dropshipper settings in the Modular Merchant shopping cart might be used.

The alternate locations might be traditional dropshippers, that are third-party manufactures or wholesalers. Or the alternate locations might be the store's regional warehouses, each of which stores certain product lines.

Dropshippers that have already been set up may be reviewed at [Shipping > Search Dropshippers]. And new dropshippers may be set up at [Shipping > Add a Dropshipper].
