What is eCommerce order fulfillment

It is the process of storing goods, packing orders, and shipping products to buyers. Basically, it covers everything that happens behind the scenes from the time a buyer makes an order until they get it.

Order Fulfillment begins with approving orders from shoppers. Next, it includes sorting your inventory, picking out the products, packing them, labeling them, and finally delivering them to the buyer. This process does not end until the order fulfillment company has successfully shipped the ordered products to the customer

How to you select an order fulfillment company


  • How many warehouses do they operate
  • Size
  • Location
  • Lenght of Contract
Large order fulfillment companies may ask their you to meet a minimum order threshold, so they may not be suitable for smaller stores.

Contract lenght is an issue. A month-to-month plan will allow you to easily switch to a new solution if your circumstances change. However, long-term plans can still be flexible if they include minimal penalties for leaving the arrangement

You also want to investigate the policy for damaged products and delivery mistakes. Several companies include shrinkage and breakage in their contracts. This acts as an insurance deductible. You take charge of losses up to a specific amount, and then the order fulfillment company will begin paying for losses after that amount has been met.

Ask about the services that would be beneficial for your store. Would you want to add your logo. You may also need to combine items with different stock numbers (SKUs) into one package. Not all order fulfillment companies offer these services
