Shopify fulfilment refers to the processes involved with sending products to your customers once they’ve placed an order on your store. These processes can include warehousing, picking, packing, shipping, and customer returns. Shopify orders can be fulfilled in the following ways:
Shopify does provide its own order fulfilment service via its Shopify Fulfilment Network (SFN). However, this service is not as comprehensive, nor as high quality, as working with a premium 3PL provider. At Zendbox, we offer a complete eCommerce fulfilment solution that accounts for every element – from the pick, pack, and dispatch of orders, to inventory management, customer returns, and everything in between. Our service is tailored to the unique requirements of your business.
Every 3PL provider will agree or decline to service a business based on their own acceptance criteria, which may include a minimum order quantity. At Zendbox, we typically accept eCommerce businesses that are doing a minimum of 15 orders per day. Whether we partner with a brand also depends on the type and size of the products within the brand’s inventory.
Theorder fulfilment process involves several steps in getting a Shopify order to acustomer. These steps include receiving and storing inventory, picking,packing, shipping, as well as handling customer returns. At Zendbox, we followa 3-step process to fulfil your Shopify orders:
Step 1 is triggered the moment an orderis placed on your Shopify store. We automatically receive the Shopify orderthrough our systems and begin picking the items from storage within ourfulfilment centres.
Step 2 is where we pack the order with99.999% accuracy using recycled and/or recyclable packaging, includingFSC-certified cardboard boxes, paper void fill, and gummed paper tape. Weensure that products are packed safely and securely to avoid damage duringtransit, so orders arrive on your customer’s doorstep in perfect condition.
Step 3 is when we prepare your order to be shipped using our intelligentMagicShip system, which selects the best shipping service at the mostcompetitive price for each package. Tracking information is automaticallyprovided to your customers upon dispatch so they know exactly where their orderis.
Outsourcing your Shopify fulfilment to the right 3PL provider can be beneficial in a number of ways, starting with freeing up your time and energy to focus on other areas of your business, including product development, marketing, and customer service. The best 3PLs can make your fulfilment process more efficient without compromising on quality, ensuring your customers continue to benefit from the best possible shopping experience with your brand. This can ultimately help drive customer loyalty, promote 5-star online reviews, and encourage repeat business.
Working with a 3PL to fulfil Shopify orders means you can also take advantage of more cost-effective shipping, as many 3PLs are able to use different carriers and negotiate the best rates for each courier service you and your customers require. Furthermore, outsourcing your Shopify fulfilment enables you to take advantage of the support offered from eCommerce experts, who can provide advice and guidance beyond fulfilment to help you scale up and grow your business.
The right 3PL provider for your business will be able to provide reliable support to ensure you manage your inventory in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible. Zendbox, for instance, offers its partners access to the intelligent inventory management system, Zendportal, which provides accurate, live stock data, and enables you to view and manage orders/customer returns in real-time. Zendportal also hosts the intuitive Inventory Analysis feature, granting your complete visibility and control over your stock, so you can avoid underselling or overselling and maximise sales.
