Dealers can offer an ‘endless aisle’ of products on Celerant’s eCommerce and in store kiosks; and have firearms dropshipped by Lipsey’s
Staten Island, NY (August 18, 2020)– Celerant Technology, the #1 provider of innovative retail solutions for the outdoor industry, today announced an expanded integration with Lipsey’s new ‘Firearms Dropship Program’. As one of the largest independently-owned wholesale firearms distributors in the country, Lipsey’s has partnered with Celerant for many years to provide their dealers with innovative and compliant retail technology; and now, with the new dropshipping integration, Lipseys’ dealers can take their business to the next level by offering ‘endless aisles’ in store and online.
Offer an ‘endless aisle’ of firearms, ammo and accessories
Through Celerant’s pre-existing integration, FFL dealers can display Lipsey’s available inventory on Celerant’s eCommerce platform and in store kiosks by pulling ‘live product feeds’, which includes product name, description, images, MSRP and stock levels; and dropship firearm accessories. By integrating with Lipsey’s new ‘Firearms Dropship Program’, dealers can continue to offer an ‘endless aisle’ of firearms, ammo and accessories in store and/or online, and now offload order fulfillment to Lipsey’s for firearms and non-firearm items. After a customer places an order, the dealer can either fulfill the order using their own inventory, or automatically route the order to Lipsey’s for dropshipping.
As always, Lipsey’s can dropship non-firearm orders directly to the customer; and with this new program can now dropship firearms to the dealer’s store, or another FFL location (using Celerant’s online FFL Locator) for customer pickup. This allows FFL dealers to offer many more products in store and/or online, while reducing their overhead by eliminating the need to invest, stock or ship additional merchandise.
“We’re excited to offer firearms dropshipping as another value-added service to Lipsey’s dealers, backed by our superior customer service and efficient shipping. We appreciate our partnership with Celerant and their ability to quickly offer this integration to our shared dealers. Celerant’s complete solution, including point of sale, kiosks and eCommerce, allows our dealers to offer the entire Lipsey’s catalog both online and in store.”
– Aaron Keating, Vice President of Technology & Chief Information Officer at Lipsey’s
