Amazon Third Party Fulfillment. In this episode of Follow The Data, we’re interviewing Michael Sene from Deliverr – one of the top 3PL companies eCommerce sellers are tapping into for explosive growth.
Amazon’s revolutionary two-day Prime shipping changed the logistics game forever and played a sizable role in making it the eCommerce powerhouse it is today. Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) is one of the many pillars that make becoming an Amazon seller appealing and possible.
But it isn’t the only way to store your products and fulfill your orders on time.
Amazon coach and Follow the Data host Cam Yoder sat with Michael Sene from Deliverr to discuss the advantages of Fulfillment By Merchant (FBM) third-party logistics.https://www.youtube.com/embed/ylvrlnE7MRE?version=3&rel=1&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&fs=1&hl=en-US&autohide=2&start=2&wmode=transparent
Like Amazon Prime, Deliverr boasts fast and affordable shipping options that enable multi-channel logistics to sellers of any size. However, unlike Prime, Deliverr allows for fulfillment on orders outside of Amazon. As a result, they’re simplifying the fulfillment experience and allowing sellers the opportunity to explore omnichannel options.
When COVID-19 hit, Amazon sellers saw their inventory (and profit) freeze. Many started searching for alternative options for fulfillment and researching the growing industry of 3PL companies such as Deliverr. Amazon Third Party Fulfillment is booming.
Alternative fulfillment options allow you to maintain the shipping speed and convenience necessary to continue growing while opening the door to easily host and sell your products on websites like Walmart, Shopify, Wish or eBay (not to mention protecting your eCommerce operations when big events like COVID-19 or the holidays hit).
Check out this installment of the Follow The Data podcast for more information on 3PL companies like Deliverr and if FBM via 3PL is right for your business.
