What is an E-Commerce Fulfillment Company?
So let’s talk a moment about what constitutes an eCommerce Fulfillment firm. The main point is that these companies focus on exchanging order information over the web, so that they can receive orders directly from your online shopping cart and then pass you back shipping tracking information directly into your online shopping cart. Your typical warehouse vendor may only deal with companies that don’t have a web store. They might accept order information via email, phone and fax. DRTV vendors usually focus on infomercial products, whereas Order Fulfillment companies have experience working with retail customers and the usual EDI (electronic data interchange) that takes place within that industry.
What Do These Companies Charge
Now that you know what to look for, let’s focus in on costs and pricing. Bottom line…you want to get the best rates possible. Usually, the pricing includes receiving fees, storage fees (either per pallet or per square/cubic footage), pick and pack fees, and shipping fees. However, with eCommerce Fulfillment Pricing, you’ll also see fees associated with the integration of your web store with their inventory management system. These fees for integration can range from free (if they already have an existing integration with your shopping cart) to thousands of dollars. While costs are important to consider, don’t forget about how important it is that the system works. If orders or tracking get lost in cyber space, you’re in big trouble. Therefore, don’t forget that you get what you pay for.
