What is a Drop-in?

A Drop-in is a small, light, flat item that is included one per shipment for every shipment. Typically, Drop-ins are either small stickers or postcards. Only one item per shipment may be considered a Drop-in.

To qualify as a Drop-in, the item:

  • must be no larger than 8.5" x 5.5" x 0.125" (L x W x H);
  • must weigh no more than 0.20 lbs;
  • will be included one per shipment in every eligible shipment;
  • cannot ship by itself; that is, a Drop-in always accompanies other items in a shipment;
  • can ship in any shipping container and cannot have an impact on containerization;
  • does not hold up shipments; that is, if inventory runs out of a particular Drop-in, shipments will continue to ship without them, and the Drop-in program will be suspended until the item is restocked by our Client or its supplier of that item.

Drop-ins also:

  • require unique SKUs;
  • are tracked in inventory;
  • appear on packing slips;
  • are subject to any applicable Receiving, Storage, and SKU Support Fees;
  • cannot be included in poster tubes.

 

How do I set an item as a Drop-in?

  1. Create the Item in my.amplifier;
  2. Email Client Service at client-service@amplifier.com informing our team which SKU you would like to designate as a Drop-in. Client Service will confirm that this item satisfies all the above criteria and, if so, set up this program for you. You may provide a specific date range if you would like, or the program could simply run until stock of the drop-in is consumed.

Other Promotional Items

You may also add other (non-Drop-in) items to your shipments as promotions. These items will be considered picked items subject to normal fulfillment fees. Email Client Service at client-service@amplifier.com for more info.
