Continents Apart Assists Manufacturers, Importers, and Wholesalers in the Fast-Growing e-Commerce Marketplace During Unprecedented Times

·3 min read

The dropshipping reps work with vendors and home furnishing retailers, offering supply chain solutions to help both run operations more efficiently.

SARASOTA, Fla., July 12, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dropshipping reps Continents Apart are a key resource in the rapidly growing e-Commerce industry at a critical time when home furnishing vendors and retailers cannot afford to lose market share due to the challenges of the recent pandemic.

The significant growth in online shopping has given rise to the demand for dropshipping services and the overall e-commerce trade. According to Statista, online furniture sales represent one of the strongest e-commerce sales categories in the U.S. Furniture e-commerce revenue amounted to $65.12 billion in 2018. By 2022, it is forecasted to increase to $99.87 billion.

Dropshipping is proving to be the wave of the future for vendors, retailers and consumers thanks in part to the surge in e-commerce which grew by a record 44% in 2020. This supply chain model for the retail channel continues to evolve, with dropshipping reps, such as Continents Apart, providing value-added services with their decades of know-how and proven results.

"We have helped businesses that have tried on their own or with other 'reps' that did not specialize in home furnishings, décor and furniture and have documented sales improvement of 87% to 590% in their first year with us," said Continents Apart Founder and CEO Steven Husak. "We also love to 'pioneer' lines that have never been sold online."

Continents Apart partners with major online retailers such as Wayfair, Pier1.com, Lowe's and Amazon, among others. The company understands the various consumer search algorithms on each retailer's site to maximize sales while holding good margins and not jeopardizing the brick and mortar business. They negotiate favorable payment terms, add new products, update inventories, plan promotional calendars, drive traffic to the products on the various sites and provide appropriate data in different formats for each site's requirements.

"Vendors and suppliers find that by working with us they see cost savings with respect to hiring in-house staff and the trial and error that occurs with figuring out how to move inventory and generate online sales" says Husak. We truly make the entire process seamless and give our partners one less thing to think about."

Husak is known in the industry for being a trusted expert, advising vendors and suppliers on new product development, acquiring new products to sell, increasing cash flow, and whatever else they may need to run their businesses successfully.

"Buyers at retailers love us because we speak their language and make their jobs very easy," adds Husak. "They don't have to chase vendors around for information to get them set up and selling. They know we bring them quality products and vendors that ship on time. We've transformed e-commerce merchandising into an art form, making the procurement process easier, faster and more profitable for retailers and their suppliers."
