From a shopper’s point of view, their online “budol follows a pretty straightforward path from A to Z: click the buy button, wait a couple of days and sign off on the package when it arrives. For the online seller, however, the process looks very different after the shopper clicks “buy”. 

Getting the product from warehouse to the customer’s home is a job for ecommerce fulfillment, the process in which inventory is received in warehouses, picked and packed for delivery, and shipped to the customer. 

In the infographic below, we’ve tracked the steps taken in ecommerce fulfillment. Download the infographic and make it your guide.

Ecommerce fulfillment: DIY vs. outsourced

Online sellers can choose from two ecommerce fulfillment options. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, depending on whether the seller wants to control the whole process; or whether they prefer to focus on growing their business and leave the fulfillment process to a third-party logistics (3PL) supplier.

In-house: for total control

Just as the name says: the seller sets up their own delivery system, maintaining their own network of warehouses, fulfillment centers and shipping.

  • Pros: ideal for small operations or for sellers that want to retain control over the entire ecommerce process.
  • Cons: Very capital-intensive; if the operations scale up and you need to build your own fulfillment center network and operations team.

Third-Party Logistics (3PL): outsource your fulfillment

Sellers can outsource order fulfillment to third-party logistics fulfillment services or 3PL – they will pick, pack and ship all your orders domestically and internationally, using their own fulfillment centers and courier partners.

  • Pros: Sellers don’t need to invest in warehouse space, logistics infrastructure or labor for ecommerce fulfillment.
  • Cons: Some 3PL partners are better than others; sellers must take the time to find a reliable logistics partner that can deliver on all its promises.

Do it right with Ninja Fulfillment

Doing it yourself may give you total control, but it can only hinder your business’s growth in the long run. Instead, it’s recommended to outsource your warehousing and fulfillment so you can focus more on the bigger things.
