Half the battle in e-commerce retail selling is sourcing reputable drop ship suppliers that provide attractive products and margins. The other half is deciding on the correct technology platform; service and seller differentiation; scalable automation; and, knowledge of market conditions in order to make business profitable.

SportStation represents over twenty-five manufacturers (and growing rapidly) and thousands of products in our drop ship program. To our Manufacturer Partners, we are more than just a buyer. To our B2B Partners, we are more than just a seller. At SportStation we understand the value in helping both sides grow their business.   

The Manufacturer: SportStation partners with each manufacturer to understand their complete business requirements. In some cases, we become a supplement to our Manufacturer Partner's marketing strategy. This unique relationship translates as a benefit to our B2B customers in enhanced services and pricing.

Kitting and Cross-Kitting: Did you know that our units shipped have increased a minimum 200% for products that are kitted and cross-kitted with multiple manufacturers? Not only does this process support our manufacturers, but it enhances our B2B partner's capabilities by differentiating value in the market.

  • Are there certain products you want kitted together with the ability to sell them separately as needed?
  • Are you interested in building a kit just for your customers, or for a specific marketing promotion? 
SportStation provides this unique kitting capability, and doesn't cost you a dime (with exception of drive and creativity).

    Technology: SportStation has a service-level to fit your technology requirements. We understand that as your business grows, so may your integration requirements - no problem! Our services include full integration; partial integration; automatic updates and dynamic inventory files. We want you to focus on your customer to build a reputation in service and value, and not our customer.

    Sourcing: Have you analyzed the costs associated with processing one order? Now, multiple that order across multiple suppliers. Get the picture? Consolidating suppliers is the first step in gaining net margin and profitability. If SportStation does not currently inventory your top-selling products, challenge us to fulfill your needs. Our goal is to provide a one-stop shop and help you increase your net margin through product selection, price and availability.  

    Marketing: As a key element to your repeat customer business, SportStation provides a branded, customized, pack slip with any order that ships to your customer direct from our warehouse.

    We have the ability to source products in order to find you a better pricing strategy. Cut costs and increase margin by uploading all orders to SportStation versus multiple suppliers.

    Maybe you have an idea that will corner the market, or be appreciated by your customer base? Work with your SportStation specialist to differentiate your business. 

    Fulfillment by SportStation: Are you interested in increasing margins, or guaranteeing product during busy seasons? Analyze your top-selling products and invest by pre-purchasing inventory at a lower cost. SportStation will warehouse and ship direct to your customer. Create your own kit combinations that differentiate you from the competition. SportStation will combine products and ship direct to your customer.

    Let SportStation help you grow your business! We should be viewed as a dedicated specialist and strategical resource.
