Gift Marketing Alliance is pleased to offer programs that fit everyone in the gifting industry. Use our products, design your own, add other drop shipped products - we're here to help you have a successful business that impress your customers.
So, let's talk about what drop shipping is and isn't...
Dropshipping is when you sell the products on your website and when you get an order, we ship it on your behalf. You make a 30% commission on all sales. Dropshipping is NOT about you putting our products on your website and making them yourself and shipping them. As a matter of fact, that is prohibited and will cause immediate termination of your account and a $500 fine.
Benefits of Gift Basket Drop Shipping with Gift Marketing Alliance
- No inventory. If you aren't making your own gifts or even if you are, you don't have to bulk up on inventory like we do.
- Immediate shipments. We ship same day on non-personalized gifts (next day on personalized gifts) if the order is received by 1pm PST.
- High quality and unique products in our gift baskets. We're different than other companies in that we have developed several of our own products that can not be purchased anywhere else.
- Multiple high quality images and product descriptions - both optimized for search engine optimization.
- One of our owners, Debbie Quintana is an industry expert and coach who owns The Gift Basket Association, National Gift Basket Convention and Trends & Tips Magazine which leads to the latest and greatest information and expertise in the industry. Debbie's personal experience in the industry provides you with multiple benefits including product trends and designs, and marketing materials.
- We'll include your marketing materials in the basket and/or label on the basket. Just provide those materials (or have us make them) and we'll handle it.
- We provide customer upsells including greeting cards and printed ribbon.
- We have a library of website images that you can use as long as you are a member.
