drop ship



drop ship (third-person singular simple present drop ships, present participle drop shipping, simple past and past participle drop shipped)

  1. To deliver goods for a business directly to its customers, as though the business owned a relevant inventory, but the manufacturer is the real source of that delivery.
    If you drop ship the orders, then you don't need to own the products; thus, fewer of your customers suspect you're acting as a middle man.
