What is subscription box fulfilment?

Subscription box fulfilment is the process of picking, packing, and shipping products to customers on a regular, predetermined basis. In the UK alone, the subscription box market is set to be worth £1.8 billion in the next few years – a significant revenue opportunity that eCommerce businesses can’t afford to miss out on.

Convenience

Customers can have everyday items like cosmetics and toiletries delivered regularly, so that they can keep necessities topped up without having to leave the comfort of their own home.

Regularity

Depending on the product(s) they contain, subscription boxes offer customers a treat that they can enjoy and indulge in regularly, enabling eCommerce businesses to retain a loyal customer base.

Potential savings

With “subscribe and save” plans, customers can benefit from sizable discounts when they have frequently-used products shipped to their door at regular intervals.

Personalisation

Many brands grant customers the power to curate their own subscription boxes with specific products, creating a more tailored shopping experience.

At Zendbox, we offer a premium fulfilment service for various subscription-based products

Frequently asked questions

How does subscription box fulfilment work?

Subscription box fulfilment works by sending your inventory to your chosen 3PL provider, who will store your products in their fulfilment centres, ensuring they’re ready to go for the recurring ship date. Your 3PL provider will also integrate with your sales channels to begin automatically pulling orders from these channels. 

The products contained in each subscription order will be picked and packed in either standard or custom packaging, depending on your preferences. Once the order is assembled, it will be shipped in time for your customers to receive their products on the date that they expect. Tracking information will be provided to you and your customers, enabling you to follow the shipment each step of the way. 

If you’re looking to outsource your subscription box fulfilment, it’s important to bear in mind that the right 3PL company will work closely with you to agree the ideal plan for picking, packing, and shipping your subscription boxes.

How will subscription boxes be stored?

At Zendbox, we safely and securely store products for subscription boxes according to the predetermined requirements of our partners.

Is there a customer returns process?

Many 3PL providers offer a customer returns service for subscription boxes, but only reliable fulfilment companies like Zendbox will make it an easy and seamless process for you and your customers.
