EP124 Duoplane

Your Business Is On A Journey.  Invest In Yourself Today.


Being an entrepreneur is a life of learning, implementing, and iterating. All it would take is a new idea, a strategy, a Shopify app, or a marketing platform to be the next thing you need to improve efficiencies, drive more revenue, and build lifetime customer loyalty for your Shopify brand.

My guest in today’s episode is Sina Djafari the Founder of Duoplane. They are an order management platform that helps Shopify merchants automate their fulfillment through dropship suppliers and 3PL warehouses. It’s automation that makes it easier for you to grow and manage your ecommerce business by expanding your product mix without the capital outlay.

You can now send orders to your suppliers with zero effort. Duoplane connects to your Shopify store and automatically parses each sales order into vendor purchase orders or warehouse picklists and routes them to the correct supplier. Tracking information flows back to Shopify and then onto your customer.

  • The benefits of less money tied up in inventory and warehouse real estate.
  • How greater product selection using drop shipping, can offer a wider range of products without the inventory risk.
