eCommerce, buying and selling goods and services through the web, has changed the way businesses and consumers look at commerce. Customers want the ease and convenience virtual storefronts offer. Businesses have the potential to reach thousands and thousands of customers daily.
eCommerce fulfillment, the actual processing, and delivery of orders is the backend side of eCommerce and the most important part. It doesn’t matter how many customers you reach if you cannot timely deliver your goods and services.
How Does a Fulfillment Center Work?
Fulfillment centers are the workhorse of eCommerce businesses. These centers are the business’s physical side. They provide a variety of services to business owners to fulfill customer orders. Furthermore, the best fulfillment centers offer all sorts of services, such as:
- Product warehousing and shipping
- Product returns and tracking
- Database management
- Assembling and kitting
- Marketing and graphic design
- Product creation
These and other services free up time that you as a business owner to make better use of such as; expanding your business, your products, marketing, and more.
When looking for a fulfillment center for your products, you should also consider location. Shipping costs are reduced when the fulfillment center is centrally located. This saves the customer money on shipping or even makes it affordable for you to offer free shipping.
Print Ship Bind is the Midwest’s best fulfillment center with the ability to keep shipping low for your online shoppers in any large area.
Fulfillment by Amazon
Fulfillment by Amazon, or FBA, might be the first thing you thought of when you decided to look into working with a fulfillment center. While it is true that it is a household name with instant recognition, as the business owner, you also need to know the downsides to using FBA; the business’s backend is not as cut and dry as it appears to consumers.
FBA has many deficiencies that are not always obvious until you are already setting your business up. Some of the downsides to FBA include:
- Excessive fees;
- Loss of customer retention, no way to track customers;
- Product minimums
There are better alternatives to using FBA. If you want to maintain customer information for follow-up, pay lower fees, and have a large variety of services, Print Bind Ship is the service you need.

When you choose Print Bind Ship as your fulfillment center, you get one manufacturer, not multiple outsourced companies. We do our printing in-house, giving us more control and eyes on the materials you created.
Our in-house teams do all the kitting and assembly of your products. You can rest assured that your products reach your customers complete and intact. When you describe a product on your site, you don’t have to worry that it won’t be packaged correctly or that parts will be missing.
With Print Bind Ship, we can create custom packaging and boxes that identify your company with your name and logo. We will work with you to come up with an ideal solution.
Storing the physical products you sell or warehousing can be costly but is a necessary aspect of eCommerce. When you choose a fulfillment center, warehousing should be considered as well. If the warehouse is located in California, shipping costs will be higher than a centrally located location, like in the Midwest.
Dropshipping, having orders sent directly to the supplier, is another option that saves money and product storage considerations. Print Bind Ship works with you to set up your dropship business and use one location for all orders.
Shipping is a final factor that many businesses neglect to consider. The shipper is the last person associated with your product, and if shipping is poor, your customer may remember that above all else. Because Print Bind Ship has a very high shipping volume with both FedEx and UPS, our customer service from these companies is exceptional, meaning the customer sees your shipping as extraordinary.
In addition to exceptional customer service, you should consider shipping costs. Unless you are shipping thousands of products, your shipping rates are not discounted, and you probably have to calculate your shipping costs. Print Bind Ship sends thousands of products, giving us the best shipping costs, and we do the calculations for you.
