Setting up the right fulfilment service for your ecommerce business can help to drive your business forward. It is a big decision, choosing between the in-house fulfilment route or outsourcing the service, but a fulfilment service can free up a lot of time for you and your staff to focus on other areas of the business.
Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA) helps businesses to grow on Amazon by giving them access to Amazon’s logistics network. The service works by businesses sending their products to storage provided by Amazon fulfilment centres, then when a customer makes a purchase they will handle the receiving of the order, picking, packing and shipping as well as offering customer service and returns service.
So what are the benefits of using Amazon FBA for your business?
1. Fast and efficient shipping
We all know that speed is the edge to have when it comes to shipping these days, paired with lower prices this will encourage customers to purchase through you. You will likely get to a point whereby completing your orders each day is becoming difficult and extremely time consuming. It is at this point that you may consider outsourcing this process rather than completing in house which would mean more warehousing space and more staff.
In the long run outsourcing can save you money whilst at the same time keeping your customers happy with a fast service through extensive industry networking and the knowledge and experience to offer impeccable service.
2. Handling of Returns
Another time consuming stress is the handling of returns and the customer service that comes with that. Using Amazon FBA means that you remove that process altogether and delegate it to a knowledgeable and experienced team who will handle everything for you.
3. Customer Service
As mentioned above, customer service is a big part of the Amazon FBA service and it offers the opportunity to outsource continuity and high quality of service, giving you peace of mind and allowing you to focus attention on products and other areas of potential growth within your company.
4. Storage Space
Having your own storage space means you need the funds to keep it and the time to manage it. With Amazon FBA you had all of the stresses that come with warehousing over to them. You won’t face storage limitations and the management is taken care of.
5. Faster Delivery
With the network that Amazon can offer it means that it also provides a super-fast delivery service. With fulfilment centres around the world there is no shortage of provision or access to your customers.
