Dropshipping: Using the program is simple. You offer one or all products we offer and customers pay you directly for the merchandise at retail pricing (that you set). You collect shipping information and collect payment from your own customer base, place the order with us, enter your customer's shipping address and we ship the order to your customer. This is a very easy way to sell products on your own site or places like eBay® or Amazon® where you get paid by PayPal or Amazon Payments and then pay us at wholesale pricing. This lets you profit from every order you receive without inventory, order fulfillment, warehousing, etc.
No inventory or bulk purchase required, but there are a few things we'll need before you can apply... Note: You may also be interested in our Coffee Affiliate Program instead
FEIN (a Federal Employer Identification Number from the IRS)
To do business with our corporation through dropshipping you need to have a Federal tax ID (not a Social Security Number, an IRS assigned tax ID commonly called an EIN or FEIN).

Private Label Coffee / Co-Packer
Old Chicago Coffee also offers Private Label Coffee where you use our select coffees to fulfill shipments to customers with your own brand name. We are an inspected facility and fully licensed. You simply supply your own coffee bags (and shipment packaging if desired, but optional) or send us product labels to apply to our blank coffee bags which are black with a valve. You order the same way dropshippers do and supply us a list showing which coffees are which (example: Our Costa Rica Tarrazu Dark Roast would be a certain coffee type you offer under a different name, so you email or mail us a sheet showing what to ship when you order that particular coffee, etc. We then process the order and that coffee is placed in your own coffee bag or one of our blank bags with your label on it. Return address on shipping labels is your brand name and address, not ours. Nobody knows it came from here.
