Switching from self fulfillment to drop ship?

Has anybody here tried to do their own fulfillment, then transferred their product to a fulfillment house?  If so, did you find it worth your while?

Customized Items Requiring Proof Approval

Hello, I've searched high and low for a solution but I'm guessing what I've been hired to do is a bit out of the ordinary. The company I'm interning at is selling a product that requires an image from the customer. The image will be sent to a vendor, a proof created and then approved by the customer before the product ships. The sale has already ended this is just a post-sale approval process...

Shopify has 45,000 merchants with 6 milion products listed. If you could sell any one of these millions of products on your store would you?

Wholesale site End Users…

So I made a bright and shiny new Shopify site for wholesale customers. Through this I think I discovered a generation gap. While I find it easier to order online, some of our customers still prefer to place orders through the phone and email. I would still like to have all the orders processed through Shopify. I've investigated POS apps such as shopkeep and vend, but it seems that doesn't send ...

How do I sell stuff produced by others?

I really like what Shopify offers. I am writing from Europe, and I'd like to target the international market. I feel like I have a great idea, but I don't have the budget to buy a lot of products before I sell some. So, my question: when you're selling products produced by others, what do you do in practice? You order the product just ordered from you and ship it to your customer or... well,...

Best way to implement Wholesale pricing?

I have a Shopify site where I want to offer wholesale pricing. here's what i'm looking to do: Each product will have tiered pricing per quantity, ex: 36 - 71 pieces will be $10.15, 72-107 will be $8.60, etc. Each product will typically have a Size variant. Currently, i've built a form in javascript that totals up the number of pieces they have, so there's the total quantity. What I now nee...

Wholesale vs. Retail

Does shopify let the enduser seperate the accounts that get set up? Better yet, can we set up accounts for companies to do wholesale? Is there a way to set up the site so people can create logins so they can see the old shopping carts, purchased items, store credits and so on?
