FragranceNet is a dropship supplier of brand name Fragrances such as Gucci, Calvin Klein, Polo, and more. FragranceNet allows their dealers to resell their top brands names on their own website and third party marketplace accounts while providing wholesale, discounted, and tiered pricing to their resellers.
FragranceNet has thousands of dealers and many of them that require dropship data integration. Traditionally FragranceNet has provided an FTP server for their resellers to download files and upload orders. Integrating with their files and order process can often had complexity and friction in the sales and setup process for new dealers. With the addition of custom pricing files and specific dealer inventory feeds, the complexity and technical burden can really weigh down the new dealer onboarding process.
As a long term supplier integrated with Inventory Source, FragranceNet has been enabling their resellers to automatically connect their store and marketplace account with using our software for quite some time. Because of this long standing relationship, when it came to sending orders and building in custom dealer price rules the FragranceNet and Inventory Source team were able to build a solution to ease the onboarding of some of FragranceNet’s largest dealers.
Using the same Inventory Source supplied FTP server we had been for years we added a sub folder structure to account for different FragranceNet dealer accounts. Under these dealer accounts we built out the incoming order and outgoing shipment tracking sub folders to easily pass order files back and forth with FragranceNet. We also connected under the dealer specific folder to a pricing file, overwriting the generic inventory feed pricing for their larger retailers with discounted pricing.
With a file transfer process in place for each individual dealer, Inventory Source was able to offer our full automation to their dealers allowing them to automatically place orders, sync shipment tracking, and auto-price and list items using their dealer specific cost. This enabled high volume retailers to automate their dropship operations with FragranceNet and was a catalyst to an increase in Inventory Source customers adding them as a supplier.
“In the many years we have worked with Inventory Source, they continue to develop tools and new features which address the changing needs of our dropship customers. I can honestly say they have truly made it much easier for suppliers and resellers to do business”
