Drop shipping ensures that an order is sent directly to a Photographer's Client without any Nations Photo Lab branding or pricing information included in the packaging. The shipping label will denote the reseller as the sender, rather than the lab. There will also be a non-branded packaging slip included in the order. Drop ship orders do not qualify for free shipping over $49.
See an example of a Drop Shipping packing slip below:

How to Select Drop Shipping when ordering on ROES
After you have created your order and have added items into your cart, you will click into your shopping cart. Then, you will need to specify if the order is going to a residential address or a commercial address. This field is located in the top right corner of the shopping cart page. After the address type has been selected, you can proceed by clicking, “COMPLETE AND SEND ORDER” to continue with the checkout process.
During the checkout process, you will first need to fill out your account information and then you will be prompted to select your shipping method. This is where you will need to specify that you are shipping “to your customer.” You will want to choose any of the three options that reads "Ship to My Customer."
This will ensure that your order is shipping with the drop ship option applied to it. Once you select the shipping method, you can proceed with the checkout process.
*Please note: If the drop ship option is not selected upon submitting your order, the name associated to the account will override the Ship to Name that was input for the shipping details. Please double check your order before submitting as this could cause delivery issues*
