Today’s a very exciting day for me. We’ve just announced a spin-off company from Doba called DropShip.com and I’m one of the co-founders and CEO of this new wild ride. Our announcement release is here: Dropship.com Takes The Complexity and Pain Out of Drop Shipping. This is the latest step on the road I started nearly 12 years ago when I started poking around at running a ski swap online. That led to GearTrade.com which led to Doba which has now led to DropShip.com. (this recent post “10 Years” has some more history in there if you’re interested)
We’re going to take a new approach at solving the problems around drop shipping by offering private drop shipping software platforms to ecommerce retailers and wholesale suppliers. We’re leveraging the technology and experience we’ve developed at Doba over that past 9 years. I’m joined in this new company by 10 other rock solid guys from Doba that are jumping on board this new bandwagon.
Doba will keep plugging away solving it’s own problems by helping people get access to an aggregated source of supply through it’s virtual distributor model. I’m still a major shareholder and Chairman of the Board. In fact, Doba is sort of our first customer as we power all of their core data exchanges for virtual catalogs, real-time inventory, and orders.
So check out DropShip.com, especially our Company Overview page, so you can see what we’re going to go do as the Drop Shipping Action Team. Expect some mind blowing and awesomeness coming to ecommerce near you.
Rock n Roll.
