Dropship Partner Page - Updates and Latest News.
September 13, 2010: App. is functioning well and we have updated to 'set up version 1.1'. Thanks for sharing all of your input. We have invited most of our current partners to begin the transition. Whiskey Barrel coffee is now available to all of our dropship partners and is selling very well. New half/caf. is also catching on. We expect a huge year over year increase in demand for the holidays and now is the perfect time to get your marketing plans set up and to add in those new offerings to create excitement. All products and packaging is currently in stock.
September 10, 2020: Beta testing is going well and we will start processing initial orders on Friday 9/11 and Monday 9/14. Assuming all goes well, we will begin regular continuous processing of all app based orders on Monday 9/14. Current order to ship times across platforms is 2-3 business days.
September 6, 2020: The Q4 price list is available. Some new offerings and our app based pricing is reflected. The app price includes shipping and drop ship fees. It is truly an all in price and is reflective of the average of COGS for the last 12 months. We know there will be price volatility as many farms will not be able to fulfill their contracts. We will do our best to keep prices stable and source great coffees while the impacts of COVID 19 on the coffee world begin to hit the market.
September 5, 2020: We need more Beta testers. If you are ready to launch/convert your store, contact us and we will forward the app. link and beta info. We are waiving the label review fees for all who participate. We need 25 more for this group. It's your chance to move up the queue...and help work out any issues of course.
September 1, 2020: The launch of the official TCR app is underway. A link to the app will be added here as soon as Beta Testing is complete. This new processing feature will allow us to resume adding partners, continue to expand our offerings and maintain the very low pricing necessary to make this program work.
Other changes will include: Higher quality label printers, continuous order fulfillment, shipping included and payment at time of order processing (no more bi-monthly invoicing).
August 26, 2020: The shortage of 12oz side gusseted bags continues. Containers are arriving and clearing customs but the current increase in demand and COVID 19 restrictions have slowed the valve application process which has changed delivery times from 3-4 days to 2-3 weeks with intermittent unavailability. Expect substitutions (16oz zipper pouch) starting as soon as September 1st.
August 1st, 2020: The Q4 offering list is just about ready. We will post here around Sept 1st. The new price will be mostly unchanged, some new offerings and a modification as the new app will include shipping in the price paid. More info to come as we go live with the new order processing app.
July 29th, 2020 The latest more strict COVID 19 guidance is further limiting our order processing ability and most non-system orders will not be possible until further notice. We continue to develop the APP to offset some of this human requirement and will update further once the app is ready for launch - planned Jan 1 and accelerated to Beta testing around Sept 1 if all goes well.
July 15th, 2020: New Covid Restrictions from the state of CA have further limited our production and order processing staff. Our new roasting line is on-line and will compensate. At this time, we are pausing adding new partners and freezing all existing stores. No changes until we can complete the app and migrate to it.
July 1st, 2020: Demand continues to be very high. Congratulations! We are starting to see Covid 19 impacts at origin and many farmers will struggle this year to get harvests to the mill and many mills are not operational. We are working diligently to support our farms and source coffee to continue to meet the demand. We do expect price increases as soon as the 1st of the year.
