2nd Amendment Wholesale is a wholesale distribution company of firearms and firearm accessories. They provide top brands backed by a knowledgeable staff and distribute exclusively through the wholesale channels to their dealers.
2AW has allowed dropship orders from their dealers from the inception of the company and has always handled these manually. Unlike their traditional wholesale orders, dropship orders have an added level of complexity in managing each order and their daily frequency made for a management headache.
In addition to accepting automated orders, 2AW also faced significant development effort in providing and managing an inventory feed for their dealers to connect to for live inventory updates.
2AW saw an increase in demand for dropshipping from some of their top dealers, and they knew they had to implement a scalable solution.
2AW went from managing all their orders and feeds via custom development extended off their Magento store to streamlining their dropship and wholesale processes via Flxpoint.
Leveraging Shiphero as their Warehouse Management System, Flxpoint connected directly into Shiphero to pull the most accurate and up to date inventory quantities available.
Once integrated directly with their WMS, they opened up the Flxpoint Dealer Portal to allow dealers to send in orders automatically via 3rd party platforms like the Inventory Source app, as well as EDI and API connections. Their dealers were also able to place orders via the dealer portal for any wholesale or dropship order with their custom pricing and catalog displaying.
Lastly, 2AW has been so happy with the platform they have become an affiliate partner, recommending several of their dealers to also join the Flxpoint platform and automate their businesses from end-to-end.
