Reduce Operating Expenses

There a few ways an online retail business might work with third-party fulfillment services, including simply replacing the retailer’s own warehouse.

While each retailer’s situation will be unique, using a service company that specializes in warehousing and fulfillment could help some ecommerce businesses reduce operating expenses. For example, employing a third-party fulfillment firm could:

The money saved could be dropped directly to the bottom line or invested in other areas of the business, like marketing, which in turn could lead to growth.

Focus on Other Areas

In addition to the possible monetary benefits described in the section above, working with a third-party fulfillment service may also free up a merchant’s time.

This is especially true for small online retail operations. For example, if it’s your job to both develop the store’s content marketing and pack orders from noon to 5:00 p.m., using a fulfillment service may mean that you have a lot more time for blog posts, customer-attracting articles, a video FAQ section, or similar.

If you believe content marketing will help your business grow, having the time to do more of it or to be more effective at it is very important.

Options for Order Fulfillment

For at least a few reasons described here, employing a third-party fulfillment service could help an ecommerce business grow. The emphasis is on “could help,” since not every business is in a position to use third-party services nor does it make sense for every product in every situation.

To understand if this is a good option for your ecommerce operation, it can be helpful to consider some of the fulfillment options or models available for tangible products.
