Puckator-Dropship.co.uk is a niche drop shipping company that deals exclusively in gift ware that you can promote and sell direct to your online business customers. With an established network of drop shippers behind it, Puckator.co.uk offers a range of great products, low cost membership fees and a professional, easy to operate sales platform for your business.
Looking at the site itself, it looks more professional than most other sites in this category. Everything is well organised with a logic that makes it simple to navigate all of the important features using the clickable tabs on the homepage. It's quick and easy to join. Within a few minutes you can have full access to everything the site offers. Puckator-Dropship.co.uk takes a simple approach to membership, with a single membership option costing a very reasonable £25.00 per year. There are no extra monthly fees to pay. Even as a modest seller you should be able to recoup your membership fee in a very short time.
Until you join it's not possible to view the prices of their products. Drop ship prices are calculated by adding 12% to standard wholesale prices, so if you want to get a general sense of what items will cost before parting with your £25.00, take a look as the wholesale site, www.puckator.co.uk and register for free. You then then simply add 12% to the wholesale price. Once registered you receive access to the entire product catalogue comprising 33 categories of gift ware, including collectible figurines, toys, aromatherapy, gift bags and boxes, jewellery and accessories and much more.
There's also a quick search engine to make browsing slightly more efficient. Whilst gift ware often features in the product ranges of drop ship companies, the amount of stock is often minimal. It's therefore possible to steal a march and boost your online sales by promoting gift ware rather than other lines such as electrical items and accessories that are the stock trade of drop shipping sites. The product catalogue contains thousands of items that are added to regularly, meaning that you can always offer your customers something new.
At the time of this review there were 463 new products available. The choice of products within each category is also better than on other sites (e.g. fashion and beauty accessories (59 products), scarves (130), gift candles (44), gothic fantasy and new age gifts (100) jewellery and accessories (300)).You'll invariably find a great selection, whatever line(s) you choose to specialise in. The quality of products also looks superior to gift ware found on other sites in this category.
The easy-to-use ordering system requires no special technical knowledge. It's like buying on Amazon.
As a member you can choose to sell as many or as few products as you like. Unfortunately, there isn't a membership option to create your own website but you can promote products on marketplace sites such as eBay or Amazon, or on your own website if you have one. It's easy to advertise products on your website or on Amazon or eBay. You're free to use Puckator's images and product descriptions, which can be copied and pasted one by one, or by using product feed files (faster if you want to promote a large number of products).
When a customer purchases an item, you simply order on the site, enter your customer's delivery address and the product is shipped directly to the customer. Your customer will think it has come from you as all products are shipped in plain packaging without any reference to Puckator.co.uk. There's no sales commission, so you get to keep the profit. Stock levels are updated throughout the day and you have the option to check stock levels manually on the site or direct feeds to your website. If an item goes below 20 it goes red. Below 12 and it disappears. If a customer has ordered an out of stock item they will assist you in finding an alternative.
The easy-to-use ordering system requires no special technical knowledge. It's like buying on Amazon. You can easily add an item to your basket, delete items and change quantities. Items are also saved in your basket when you log off. All prices exclude VAT, which is added at the checkout and returns are dealt with by Puckator saving you the time and trouble whilst allowing you to concentrate on sales.
Products can be ship worldwide. Orders are usually shipped within 72 working hours (orders dispatched Monday-Friday). It's possible to upgrade from Royal Mail First Class (untracked) to Priority Delivery (using fastest service available-as long as you order by 12.00 noon it will go that day) or next working day. Shipping prices are provided on the site.
Puckator-Dropship.co.uk has a great website and ordering system that's clear and easy to use, as well as great membership terms. With a fantastic range of products too, it deservedly makes our number 2 spot.
