SAN FRANCISCO - June 11, 2008 -- Shopster.com, a leader in e-Commerce business tools, now offers a dropship (direct-to-consumer fulfillment) product sourcing package. "Shopster Product Source" gives sellers, on sites like eBay, listing tools and access to over one million products to complement their current business.
"Our two powerful business solutions allow our customer to choose the one best suited to their unique business requirements," says Sarath Samarasekera, Shopster’s CEO. "Shopster e-Commerce - our flagship product - is the benchmark for online retailer solutions, and it allows our customers to compete successfully in the global retail marketplace. For our other customers - for example the eBay PowerSeller - they want a solution that gives them products to sell and tools to list on eBay and that`s what Shopster Product Source does for them."
Subscribers to the Shopster Product Source can source inventory from over 130 dropship suppliers. This inventory is available through an easy to use online warehouse. Rather than worrying about managing many supplier relationships our subscribers can work with all the suppliers through Shopster. In addition, our subscribers can create eBay listings for these products and sell them to their customers directly from their Shopster account. Once a product is sold, Shopster works with the supplier to ship the product directly to the consumer. The Shopster subscriber never has to worry about inventory or shipping the products.
"On top of the cost and risk of carrying inventory an expensive and difficult task for many sellers is being able to create and maintain trustworthy and reliable supplier relationships," Samarasekera adds. Shopster leverages their growing subscription base to source better products at better prices for sellers. "A retailer can try to forge relationships on their own, or they can take advantage of the negotiating power that comes along with Shopster`s community of users."
Matt Cox, Shopster`s Chief Product Officer and co-founder, credits the success of Shopster on its ability to predict and respond to the needs of a growing subscriber base. "Shopster Product Source is the direct result of keeping in touch with our users. Since 2004 we`ve been building features and growing our product offering because our retailers let us know what they wanted." For example, when it became apparent that subscribers were listing Shopster-sourced products on eBay, Shopster developed an eBay compatible application to facilitate the listing process. "Once we saw that our current users and visitors wanted increased eBay integration, we set out to become as integrated as possible."
Now an eBay Certified Solution provider, Shopster is one of only 30 companies world-wide to be a part of eBay`s Certified Provider Program. According to Matt Cox, "with our eBay certified engineers working on it, subscribers can rest assured that Shopster Product Source will meet and exceed their eBay needs."
