This brief guide is meant to highlight those features we offer at FinerWorks for artists and photographers who use us as their order fulfillment service. At FinerWorks, we believe providing reliable order fulfillment must be simple. In addition, we want artists and photographers to be confident their customers will receive the prints exactly as intended. There is no application process and it and does not take any special knowledge or technical expertise. If you know how to access photos or image files off your computer and use the Internet, your basic requirements have been met. If you have used FinerWorks before for online ordering, this guide will help you make sure you have not overlooked some of the tools we offer.

What is Drop Shipping?

One of the first things we did when we built our initial ordering system over a decade ago was provide an automatic drop shipping option. Drop shipping simply means you do not need to carry any inventory or worry about packaging and shipping. You commission the drop shipper (which would be FinerWorks) to send the order to your customers but branded under your name so it looks like you or your company shipped it.

Many big online companies rely on this method either solely or to let them ship products which they normally would not be able to inventory. Amazon.com uses this method for some of the items sold and at the individual level Ebay and Esty sellers use this method all the time.

How it Works

At checkout in the area where you select your “Shipping Method” will be a check box you can click to indicate you want it drop shipped. If you provide a valid address in your account’s business profile, we will automatically check this for you. The order is then shipped and made to look like you are the sender. No information about us will be included. Prices will also be removed from the packing slip.
