Our drop shipping program is highly successful and reliable. The following details of the program will ensure the highest level of service and performance for drop shipping silver jewelry from our warehouse.
Activating Drop Ship Mode
To convert your wholesale account into a drop shipping account you must email us at sales@plumislandsilver.com before using the service. Do not attempt to drop ship any packages until you receive email confirmation that your account has been converted.

PLEASE EMAIL US THE RETURN ADDRESS THAT YOU WOULD LIKE ON YOUR SHIPPING LABELS AND PACKING SLIPS.
 
Drop ship fees will not be charged for packages that ship to your own location although we must have that address on file in our in-house system. Email us any addresses that you use to ship to yourself.
 
Backorders
Our backorder system will notify you when a missing piece of silver jewelry or other item from an order arrives back in stock. Backorders are not sent automatically, you must reply to the backorder email to request that a shipment be made. All backorders that are shipping via First Class Mail will be given a $1.00 reduction in shipping fees for the backorder shipment. You are still responisible for all drop shipping fees associated with your account. You are required to select the HOLD BACKORDER option on the checkout screen for each order that you want backorders held on. It is highly recommended to use this sevice to ensure that your customer will receive their merchandise in the most timely fashion. If you would like your account to automatically hold a backorder, please email us at sales@plumislandsilver.com to request this service at no additional charge.
 
Out of Stock Items
Although our silver jewelry inventory system is very accurate there may be occasions where an item is not available when your order ships. In this case we will ship your order as is without notification to you unless the order is shipping UPS-RED or PO-EXPRESS (postal service express mail). In this situation you will be sent an email to the email address on your account at the time the order was placed. The email will detail the missing items in your order and request that you call us at 1-800-543-7177 or 1-978-499-8203 by 3PM EST if you do not want the order shipped. If we do not hear from you by telephone, your order will shipped as scheduled with missing items.
 
All orders that are NOT shipping via an overnight express service (UPS-RED or PO-EXPRESS), will be shipped as is without notification to you. You will receive an end of day shipping notification detailing each order shipped. You are advised to use our back order services to enable you to fulfill your customers order at a future date.
 
Telephone notification service is available for express shipments for an additional $0.25 drop ship fee per express shipment. If this option is selected a customer service agent will call your main contact phone number on your account to alert you of the missing item status. Only one call will be attempted and a message will be left if an answering service is available. The additional drop ship fee will apply to all express shipments regardless of whether call service is required.
