Maine Trading is pleased to announce that we have now set up a drop shipping service for our customers.
For companies who wish us to sell their items on a drop ship (direct dispatch) basis, please contact us through the contact us form with your details and details of the items you wish us to sell on your behalf and we will contact you with further information on how you can sell your products through our drop ship service.
*If you are looking to drop ship our products please note our Drop Ship Service is currently Full - We are Operating a waiting list so if you wish to be considered for the list please email us your details using the contact us form and you will be notified when an opening becomes available - in the meantime please read below on how our drop ship service works*
With a Drop Ship Service, this means that you can offer your customers, our range without there being any risk to you holding unnecessary stock, until you figure out which lines work for you and which don’t.
Simply put your order through on our website and we will ship for you the item(s) needed. No paperwork will be included with your order, so they will not know that it has come from us.
To apply for a Drop Shipping account, you need to ensure that you have contacted us with your details, and that you have been approved along with agreeing to our Terms & Conditions. Please see our FAQ’s if you are unsure as to whether your application has been successful or not.
How it works:
Once your account has been manually approved, you will receive an email from your Account Manger confirming that your account has been set up; introducing themselves, as well as giving you a user name and password to access the dropship area of the website. If you have not received this, please do contact us and we will look into it. If you have forgotten your password, please let us know, and we can reset it for you.
Once you have been approved, list as many of our products on your site as you want – please feel free to use the images. If you require any further images, or need a hi-res image, please let us know, and we can get these sent to you.
What will happen once I have sold an item?
When you sell an item(s), send us the order by one of the following:-

Dispatch & Delivery:
Once payment has been received, your order will then be packed and dispatched via Courier. Please note that we will require the customer’s name, address, telephone number, and any delivery requirements. We only need this information to pass onto our Courier and for no other purpose. We will dispatch your order on Next Working Day Service. If you need us to send your customers order as a pre-fixed timed, or a Saturday delivery, this is possible and an additional fee will be payable – this will be priced on an order by order basis as this charge can vary depending on your customers order, and delivery address.
All orders and payments (if applicable) that are received before 4:00 pm will be dispatched the same day. If the order or payment is received after 4:00 pm, delivery will be the next working day.
Please note that delivery may take approximately 5-8 days for delivery. Please ensure that
this is clear on your site when listing the products. We will also
advise you of any delays when your order is placed.
If the order cannot be delivered by our Courier (either because no-one was at available or the wrong address was provided), and the order arrives back at our Warehouse, carriage will be payable for the order to be redelivered.
