Outsourcing fulfillment has proven to be extremely beneficial to eCommerce businesses. By outsourcing fulfillment, you can simply focus on customer acquisition, allowing you to scale your business more quickly.
You’ve probably considered warehousing, shipping, and fulfilment if you’re thinking about starting an ecommerce business or if you’ve been selling products for a while.
Making sales is, without a doubt, the most exciting part. But what happens after you place your order? Your product must make its way into the hands of customers in some way.
This can happen in three ways:
- You sell a product from a dropshipper, who fills orders for you.
- You fulfill your own orders, either alone or as part of a team.
- You collaborate with a logistics company that handles warehousing and fulfillment.
Packing and shipping your own orders has huge benefits: it is flexible and inexpensive. For these reasons, businesses that are just getting started, as well as those with unique product packaging requirements, frequently handle their own logistics.
And, regardless of age or industry, any company experiencing cash flow issues is better off handling things in-house. Sometimes you have more time than money to spend.
But if your business is growing quickly and you have the cash on hand to outsource, you may be interested in exploring third-party warehousing and fulfillment.
There are many logistics companies that will store your product and take care of packing and shipping your orders.
Working with logistics companies can be intimidating if you’ve never done it before. In this piece, we’ll take you through every step of the process.
So here are Top 5 and Best eCommerce Fulfillment Services For Shopify, Wo-commerce and many more.
ShipBob is a global logistics platform that fulfils direct-to-consumer ecommerce orders. Our mission is to help you succeed online by providing best-in-class fulfilment, ensuring that your customers receive the fast and affordable shipping they expect.
We help improve transit times, shipping costs, and the delivery experience for your customers by providing dependable fulfillment services, warehouses near your customers, and connected technology that powers our fulfillment network.
HOW IT WORKS
How ShipBob goes from your online store to your customer’s door
Connect your store, import your products, then send us your inventory.
We store your inventory in any combination of our fulfillment centers.
As soon as a customer places an order, we ship it from the nearest fulfillment center.
ShipBob is a technologically advanced 3PL. For a unified experience, we use our proprietary software across our fulfillment network. Orders are routed to our warehouses, where inventory is picked, packed, and shipped to your customers.
Our fulfillment services enable you to optimize for time and cost, use the delivery experience to exceed customer expectations, and retain more control over the customer relationship.
Streamlined fulfillment from your online store to your customer’s door
A single source of truth for your orders and inventory
On-boarding is simple and effective.
We’ve onboarded thousands of ecommerce merchants and assisted some of the fastest-growing brands in seamlessly scaling. From configuring your ship options to syncing your online store, our implementation team ensures your success.
ShipBob’s ready-to-use integrations with all major ecommerce platforms and marketplaces, including Shopify, Magento, BigCommerce, Amazon, and Walmart, allow you to import orders and send data back and forth for a two-way information flow.
Inventory was distributed.
You can strategically split your inventory across ShipBob’s fulfillment centers to get your products from point A to point B more quickly and affordably. Keeping inventory close to your customers reduces the shipping zones and costs associated with shipping orders to distant locations.
Distributed inventory also assists you in remaining competitive by providing two-day shipping to your customers. When you place an order, ShipBob’s algorithm chooses the warehouse and carrier that will provide you with the quickest turnaround at the best price. This strategy has assisted our merchants in saving 13% on their bottom line.
2-Day Express Shipping Program
ShipBob’s 2-Day Express Shipping Program ensures fast delivery for all orders placed through any of our eCommerce store integrations in the continental United States. Merchants have been able to reduce cart abandonment by 18 percent and increase average order value by 97 percent by making 2-day shipping the standard.
Whether you ship from one or more fulfillment center locations, you can provide fast delivery to all US-based customers. To provide high on-time delivery rates for 2-day orders, our proprietary algorithm employs a combination of ground, air, and regional carriers.
ShipBob tracks your orders from start to finish. Filter orders by status, search for specific orders, see a quick timeline view of where your order is in the fulfillment process (for example, when an order is picked, packed, or shipped), easily find shipping-related information (for example, weights, dimensions, or carrier service), and get a quick snapshot of any orders that require action.
You can manage subscriptions, make changes to your orders after they’ve been purchased, map your store’s shipping options to ShipBob, and automatically share tracking information with your customers with order management software for direct-to-consumer and wholesale shipments.
With the right tools and guidance, ShipBob enables merchants to manage their inventory. It’s simple to see the status of inventory and the quantity on hand across all locations at any time, identify slow-moving inventory with high storage costs, and gain insights into the performance of units sold over time by channel.
Our inventory management software allows you to set reorder notifications to proactively replenish inventory, bundle your products for promotions, make inventory transfer requests, and much more.
Reporting and analytics
ShipBob’s free analytics tool is jam-packed with charts to help you with everything from year-end reporting to better supply chain decision-making, in order to provide you with visibility into our operations and performance while also holding ourselves accountable.
Our reports show an analysis of which fulfilment centres you should stock, days of inventory left before you run out, the impact of promotions on stock levels, the average cart value, shipping cost, and days in transit for each shipping method, your fulfilment cost per order, storage cost per unit, and much more.
End-to-end customer experience
We are as concerned about the customer experience as you are, and we strive to be an extension of your team. ShipBob collaborates with you to provide the unboxing experience you desire, from custom branded boxes to free plain packaging. We also assist you in meeting your customers’ expectations by providing the quickest and most cost-effective shipping options.
When an order ships, tracking information is returned to your store. We also provide return management services, allowing customers to generate return shipping labels and track returns while processing and restocking your products as quickly as possible.
Robust integrations to streamline order fulfillment, plus APIs for custom builds
More than just picking, packing, and shipping, ShipBob can accommodate your business if you require additional services such as kitting, B2B orders, international fulfillment, and much more. ShipBob makes it simple to increase revenue, reduce cart abandonment, and expand domestically or internationally, from assisting you to supporting your growth. You receive prompt assistance from the same people who are familiar with your specific requirements. We also have on-site representatives at each location to assist with any issues that may arise.

FBA storage and fulfillment fees
Fees for inventory storage
Charged for all items stored in an Amazon fulfillment center, based on your daily average inventory volume measured in cubic feet. See how to figure out which product size tier your items belong to.
Fees for long-term storage
All items stored in a fulfillment center for more than 365 days are assessed monthly. Keeping your inventory in good condition can help you avoid long-term storage fees.
Fees for fulfillment
Picking and packing your orders, shipping and handling, customer service, and product returns are all charged per unit. To estimate fees and see how to preview your fees, use the FBA revenue calculator.
Unanticipated service charges
Charged when inventory arrives at a fulfillment center without being properly prepared or labelled, necessitating unplanned services.
Fees for removal orders
For a per-item fee, you can have Amazon return or dispose of your inventory in a fulfillment center.
Fees for processing returns
Charged on orders when Amazon offers free return shipping to customers.
FBA inventory management
List products, create shipping plans, send in shipments, track and monitor your shipments, and remove inventory from Amazon fulfilment centres using the tools in your seller account.
Inventory Performance Dashboard
The Inventory Performance Dashboard shows your Inventory Performance Index (IPI) score as well as key influencing factors. Check your IPI score on a regular basis—a low score could result in overage fees and limit your ability to send more inventory.
Control your excess inventory.
Optimize your inventory levels by knowing when to mark products down or remove them. Monitor detailed information about storage fees, sales opportunities, and suggestions to help improve inventory returns.
Keep track of inventory age.
Increase your sell-through rates while avoiding long-term storage fees. Utilize Inventory Age tools to determine how much inventory you have on hand and how long it has been in fulfilment centres.
Restore stranded inventory
Maintain the viability of your listings by including necessary pricing and condition information, as well as correcting any errors. If your inventory is in fulfilment centres but does not have an associated active listing, it is not for sale.
Restock your inventory
Maintaining the proper level of FBA inventory is critical for providing fast delivery to Prime customers. Amazon’s Seller Central restocking tools can assist you:
- Increase the number of one-day and same-day orders.
- Reduce stock outs.
- Keep your sales rank safe.
- Reduce excess inventory.
The tools provide recommendations based on your sales history, demand forecasting and seasonality, and your inputs to assist you in determining how much inventory to send and when to send it. They are completely free to use and are seamlessly integrated into Seller Central’s shipment creation workflow.
