Welcome, Canadian friends!

Port Parcel Co. is a Canadian gift boutique stocking beautiful, high-quality products exclusively sourced from Canadian companies.
We are experiencing continued growth and are always looking for the next great Canadian product!
We have had the opportunity to partner with dozens of new Canadian suppliers this year alone through our dropshipping processes.
Join us - and become a valued part of the new standard in Canadian gifting.

What is dropshipping?

Dropshipping is a fast-growing trend in the retail industry. It means that Port Parcel Co. lists a supplier's products on our site without purchasing and physically storing them. When a customer order is placed with Port Parcel Co., the order is pushed out to the supplier for fulfillment, Port Parcel Co. pays the supplier, and the order is shipped directly to the customer.

How does it work?

We currently use the Shopify Collective app to coordinate our dropshipping. The app syncs a supplier's inventory and product descriptions from their website to ours, so updates happen automatically. The app also allows us to push orders out to suppliers, and to pay the suppliers once an order is placed. The supplier can choose which products they want to dropship and can set their own shipping costs and margins. Our suppliers have indicated that this app is easy to implement (literally 10 minutes in some cases). If your store is on Shopify, we can send you an invitation to connect. 

What about shipping costs?

This is the most common question we get! Suppliers set their own shipping rates, so that the cost of shipping is transferred to Port Parcel Co. (and on to our customers if we choose).

Advantages to dropshipping

The environment

Dropshipping significantly reduces our footprint by cutting out the unnecessary intermediary shipment & packing supplies.

Exposure for suppliers

Port Parcel Co. has a growing customer base across Canada, and a healthy budget for advertising and continued growth.

Inventory selection

Dropshipping allows us to offer a far greater selection of inventory than we would if we purchased wholesale up front and physically stored inventory.

Increased margins

Since suppliers are fulfilling orders, Port Parcel Co.'s margin is most often much less than if we were purchasing wholesale at 50%.
