    This phrase is used by an advertiser to describe their good service of delivery. I do not understand it at all. Please help!

    Drop shipping is a retail practice where the retailer does not stock the goods that he sells. When he gets an order he arranges with the wholesaler to directly ship the good to the customer. This saves the retailer from having to keep an inventory of the goods that he sells.

    Blind drop shipping occurs when the shipment to the customer does not have a return address on it. This prevents the customer from learning where the goods were shipped from. A retailer would do this because he doesn't want the customer to try to get the product direct from the wholesaler on his next order.

    Special thanks to Naamplao's nice and detailed explanations. I've heard about this before but never knew "blind drop ship" is its English phrase. Thanks again.
