Episode 53: Fulfillment Services Beyond Amazon

July 14, 2020 / Chris Lema

Description

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.
However, as your business begins to grow, fulfillment will impose an ever-increasing demand on your time and money, and you’ll begin to look for ways to outsource this need to someone else. At this point, you’ll hit a fork in the road. You may be tempted by the convenience of the Fulfillment By Amazon model, but there are other options you should consider.
On this episode you’ll hear:
  • An explanation of order fulfillment
  • 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
If you’re in a position to re-examine how your business handles fulfillment, this is one episode you won’t want to miss.
