SHOPIFY APPS BUCK RIDGE SOAP PRODUCT
There are three options available to Shopify store owners who want to dropship our products. Modalyst App Spocket App and the Product Pro App are available. Install them in your dashboard, search for our products using their apps, and then add them to the store. Because of the fees each app developer charges, the price for this account is slightly higher than a manual dropship account. You pay for the convenience of adding products at a click rather than manually adding them to your store.
PRIVATE LABEL DROPSHIPPING
Private label set-up costs $250 and includes a logo design for you as well as your first label design. We can save $50 if you send us the Adobe Illustrator AI logo with outlined text.
Each product image costs $5
We can write descriptions for you at $5 per product.
Each product category label is $25.
Example: If you want to privately label 10 soaps or 5 lotions, it will cost $250 for set-up, $25 for lotion set up and $5 per image. This would make a total of $350 for private labeling 15 products in two categories. In this example, the first category (soaps) is free. Please note that boxes of USDA Certified Organic Soaps are considered a separate category. They are smaller and more flexible than standard bars, which are not USDA certified. These bars will need different sizes labels, which is why there is an additional fee if you choose shrink wrapped with belly band.
Names and descriptions
To ensure that your website is SEO-friendly, we require that the descriptions and names be changed to match your brand. Send them in an Excel spreadsheet, or CSV file. Include your product name in one column and the name you choose in the other. The spreadsheet will include our product names.
There are three options for soap packaging options. Shrink wrap with label, belly band, kraft brown boxes and white boxes. You can choose whatever best suits your brand/theme. You have the option of either vertical or horizontal labeling. If you need to see examples of these packaging options, we can provide them with images. You do not have any other options. Beard oils are sold in black bottles. However, you can choose from a white, black, or kraft brown outer retail container. If you don’t want to use the retail boxes, you can save as much as.75 cents per ounce of beard oil. All balms, lotions, and other products are packaged in clear plastic bottles or jars.
Average Shipping: Due to the high shipping costs for small packages, we recommend that you only ship to US addresses. All shipping is USPS weight. A bar of soap weighs approximately 5-6 ounces and costs $3.50 to ship. On average, 2 to 3 bars of soap cost $4.50. If you order more than 3 bars, priority mail starts at $8. Shipping a single bottle of beard oil is usually $4.75. This is due to the packaging that protects the glass bottles. These products weigh in at 7.2 ounces. These are the average weights and may vary depending on what product you order. It cost $5.55 to send a 13.9 ounce package. We recommend that you set up USPS weight-based USPS shipping in your store dashboard settings. On request, we will provide weights for you to calculate correctly.
All wholesale and dropship orders are invoiced via PayPal. Once the invoice has been paid, we provide the tracking number so that you can give your customer. If you use Shopify, there are additional automated options that we can do this automatically.
