Episode 53: Fulfillment Services Beyond Amazon
When you start an eCommerce business from scratch, you tend to handle all order fulfillment in-house. Your product is often stored in your own office or garage and processed by hand.

- Who uses it, and why
- Reasons you may not want to go through Amazon
- Other fulfillment options to consider
- Questions to ask when examining fulfillment options
