Dropshipping Pet Products

Definition: Dropshipping is a supply chain management technique in which the retailer does not keep goods in stock, but instead transfers customer orders and shipment details to either the manufacturer or a wholesaler, who then ships the goods directly to the customer.

How does dropship works?

With The Paws Pet Supplies, you can advertise some or all of our products at your web store. You do not have to hold any stock yourselves. When your customer places an order with you, simply login to your trade account and place your dropship order online. We then pack and dispatch your order to your customer directly, in plain packaging and no mention of The Paws Pet Supplies and prices.


Through dropshipping, you make your profit on the difference between the dropship and retail price. We offers you a very attractive margin, around 30 and 35%, to increase your revenues. And all without having to spend a single penny in advance on stock.

At The Paws Pet Supplies, we do not charge you monthly or annual fee for using our pet supplies dropshipping services.
