Quick Shopping Cart® lets you set up drop shipping — when a third party ships products directly to your customers. It lets you sell products you do not have in your physical inventory.
You must set up accounts with warehouses and make arrangements to pay them offline.
When a customer orders a product you have set up to drop ship, you can set up Quick Shopping Cart to send an order notification directly to each warehouse, detailing the items those warehouses need to ship. (The email notification is not sent until after the order is invoiced and payment verified.) Customers at your online store cannot see which products are drop shipped, so you are the point of contact for any of those orders.
Use Quick Shopping Cart to add drop ship warehouses to your online store. You can then edit or delete warehouses, and transfer products between warehouses that you use for drop shipments.
NOTE: We recommend you only bundle products assigned to a single warehouse. Shipping rates reflect the location of the warehouse you assign to a bundled product. Email order notifications go to the warehouse assigned to a bundled product even if that warehouse doesn't stock an individual product included in the bundle. Quick Shopping Cart retains the warehouse information that applies at the time a customer places their order. You cannot change warehouse information after a customer places an order.
You can add warehouses to use for drop shipments. You can also choose to automatically send out order notifications to that warehouse via email. However, you must make arrangements offline to send payment to warehouses.
NOTE: When you select Send order notification to this warehouse, Quick Shopping Cart automatically emails a notification to each warehouse with list of items they should supply. For instructions on editing the email template see Customizing Email Templates with Quick Shopping Cart.

NOTE: When you select Send order notification to this warehouse, Quick Shopping Cart will automatically email a notification for each order to the company that operates the warehouse. For instructions on editing the email template see Customizing Email Templates with Quick Shopping Cart.
You can copy an existing warehouse to create a new warehouse using the same information.
You can delete warehouses you no longer use for drop shipments. You can delete multiple warehouses at once.
NOTE: When deleting warehouses, all products associated with those warehouses are reassigned to No Warehouse.
You can transfer products assigned to one warehouse to a different warehouse. This action transfers all products assigned to the warehouse.
