How to Manage High-maintenance Products

What do we mean by high-maintenance products?

Some products cost more to stock and ship than others.

In certain circumstances, it may be more profitable for you to dropship them versus storing them yourself.

Any products that necessitate extra fees for storing or shipping, such as:

Large products — Some products take up so much space, their sales don’t make up the costs of the excessive storage room.
Heavy products — If a product’s weight makes it cost too much to ship, try dropshipping from a manufacturer or wholesaler.
Fragile products — Fragile products require special care when shipping. In these cases, the supplier or manufacturer might be better equipped to meet these requirements than you.
Valuables — High-value items like fine jewelry, antiques, etc., require additional security that not all warehouses can offer. Rather than risking theft, you could leave the storage to someone who can adequately protect them.
Special conditions — Maybe you want to sell items that need to be kept frozen, or materials sensitive to light. If your inventory needs special conditions, you may be better off dropshipping than storing it yourself.
Unless your entire company specializes in these types of products, it doesn’t make sense to pay additional storage and shipping fees for a small subsection of your business.

But you can still keep your customers happy by offering these products through dropshipping.
