What is Home Depot?
Home Depot is an American retailer of home construction products and tools.
In comparison to other similar suppliers, Home Depot offers many advantages. We are going to cover all of these advantages and how you can use them for your eBay dropshipping business in this article.
Free Delivery of over 1 million products
Like Amazon, Home Depot offers free two-day delivery on many different products.
Splitting orders is not possible. A $45 order cannot be calculated if two products are shipped to two different addresses. They used to allow it, but now they don’t.
You can configure AutoDS to calculate shipping prices for you if you are using it.
You need to click the Home Depot settings tab from the monitor’s page and then go to the monitor’s page. Then you need to click include the shipping price.
For products that are under $45, AutoDS will begin adding the shipping charge to the product price.
Let’s now discuss the eBay policies you need to create when you work with Home Depot.
Home Depot’s Policies:
The Return Policy
Home Depot’s returns policy is less accommodating than Amazon’s because the buyer is responsible for the return shipping costs.
If the issue is your fault, Home Depot will charge you for the return shipping.
You will be responsible for paying for return shipping if it is not a mistake on Home Depot’s part.
If your buyers receive a damaged item, Home Depot will cover the shipping costs.
To do that, you need to set your return policy like this:
Thus, if the product is damaged during transit, the buyer is responsible for return fees, while Home Depot covers them. Returns are free.
You can contact Home Depot’s customer support team for any issue.
2) Shipping Policy
We recommend setting up standard shipping (1 to 5 business days) in the shipping policy settings.
Two or three days will be enough for Handling.
You should also use Hipshipper since you can also send to Hipshipper and work with international customers through Home Depot.
Home Depot Brands Products
Home Depot has a lot of exclusive products because of its brands and partnerships.
Home Depot guarantees to be the cheapest, which is a good thing. They will compare the price of any of their products with those of another supplier if you find a lower price elsewhere.
Price Match Policy
The price match policy at Home Depot is another great and fantastic feature.
You can contact Home Depot if you find something cheaper elsewhere within 30 – 60 days of purchasing it, and they will issue you a partial refund for the difference.
If, for example, you bought a product for $100 and it went on sale for $40 within 30 days, you will get $60 back.
The only thing you have to do is to send them an email or create a chat with them, and the money will be returned to you.
You can even use AutoDS to accomplish this; go to your orders page on AutoDS and click the Export button.
