1. What is drop shipping?

Dropshipping is a fulfillment method where you as an online shop don’t keep the products in stock. Instead, when you sell the product, you purchase the item from Scala Playhouse and we ship it directly and discreet to your client. As a result, you don’t see or handle the product.

The biggest difference between dropshipping and the standard retail model is that you as our client, don’t stock your own inventory. Instead, you purchase the inventory as needed from Scala Playhouse to fulfill your orders.

2. How to get started?

Firstly we require you to register as a client at Scala Playhouse. You can simply do this by following this link: https://www.scalaplayhouse.com/become-customer/. You will than receive a welcome email and request to send a copy of your company registration and passport. Once your documents have been processed, you will receive you personal login and password which will enable you to freely browse our website.

3. Dropship methods?

Scala Playhouse offers 3 ways to facilitate dropshipping:

  1. An API (Application Programming Interface)
  2. A Magento plugin
  3. Shopify

1. API: An API is used when you already have a website up and running and you would like to integrate our assortment. It requires knowledge of programming or a good programmer. The API enables you to get product information, product availability and placing orders.

Manual API

2. Magento: like all things in life, there are some favorites. Magento would be one of them with regards to E-commerce software. Most webshops and programmers use this tool because of its ease in use. Furthermore this platform offers you numerous ways to build your own webshop. It also is an easy way to connect to our dropship platform by installing a plugin. Although easy, you would require solid knowledge of Magento and programming or again use a dedicated programmer to assist you.

Manual Magento plug-in

3) Shopify: with aid of our Scala APP which you can find on the Shopify website (ask your account manager to send your link), you are able to create an online store using the Shopify themes and Shopify templates. If you follow the instruction both on the website as provided to you by Scala Playhouse, you are able to design your own website and webshop. With Shopify you pay a monthly subscription depending on the GB you would require.

In short: if you have a webshop up and running and not using Magento, use the API. Magento is for all webshops that have been built with this technology or new webshops who are going to use the Magento platform. Shopify is most suitable for anybody who likes the idea of using standard themes and templates.
