06/19/2022

Hi Vendors, congratulations on making the best decision you’ll make all month. 

 

Let us introduce outserves. Duoplane is your dropshipping best friend. That means we handle things like: PO processing and routing, automating shipment updates, inventory syncing, and syncing invoices to accounting software. Our central focus is to connect your retail partner and you, their valued supplier/vendor, through all these processes in a simplified, seamless, and automated way.

 

Now that you’ve made the leap, we’re here to help you get started.

 

How Does Duoplane Connect you with your Retailer?

 

Duoplane simplifies and streamlines the relationship between you and your retailer. The basic order flow between your retailer, Duoplane, and you (the vendor) is laid out below:

 

1) Customer orders from Retailer’s ecommerce store → POs from Duoplane → Your system

2) Tracking details from your system → Duoplane → End customer via ecommerce store

3) Inventory from your system → Duoplane → Items on retailer’s store
