When you consider whether a fulfilment service is a good idea, there are a few considerations you may want to take in.
Have you got tired or simply outgrown fulfilling orders yourself? Are you ready to make the bold move of outsourcing and free up more time for yourself to focus on your business?
With business growth comes more sales and therefore more revenue. If you’re finding your business is growing and time is becoming shorter then now is the time to outsource your orders with the expectation of orders still maintaining a high quality.
By outsourcing your E-commerce fulfilment, we handle the whole journey for you from leaving our warehouse to the customer’s hand. If you’re also handling your fulfilment process in-house and paying for all your individual shipping costs, that is not only costing you time but money also which can be used elsewhere. Whereas outsourced partners such as ourselves get reduced rates for shipping and handle the whole process for you.
Another reason why you may be looking to outsource your goods through a fulfilment service would be to lower your spend. That can be from less spend on wages to shipping costs and storage fees as well as allowing you to free up cash for other areas such as investment in business awareness.
An obvious reason why you may want to outsource is simply down to storage. If your business is growing with orders and demand, you do not want to be heading home from a stressful day to see your new-born eating off a stock box. You would want your items stored in a secure location but still the ability to dispatch whenever you like.
We are now living in a time where online buyers are used to getting their orders next day and slow shipping times can the decisive factor in whether a customer should order from you or a competitor.
If you’re a small team or business, then whilst maintaining a high-quality service as well as day-to-day running, shipping times may not be at the top of your agenda.
However, using a fulfilment service will allow you take away that worry as the stress of a next-day delivery will be a simple task for our warehouse as we work with several courier services.
Finally, a reason why you may want to use a fulfilment service is similar to ourselves, you are expanding and going global and no matter how much money, time, power and expertise you have, outsourcing needs 100% attention and with ourselves, we provide that as a minimum.
