Moving from Amazon to ShipBob

I worked at Amazon for several years and was heavily involved in some of their supply chain and logistics business. When we initially embarked on this business journey, I had an understanding of what to look for in a fulfillment partner. ShipBob’s costs are great and fulfillment times are wonderful.

Use multiple international fulfillment centers

ShipBob has fulfillment centers throughout the world, and you get to choose which and how many locations you use for greater flexibility. When an order is placed, ShipBob automatically sends it to the fulfillment center closest to the customer. This reduces shipping costs and allows for faster deliveries.

Access to best-in-class support

ShipBob is a partner and an extension of your brand. While Amazon is not known to be the most merchant-friendly option, with ShipBob, you always speak to real people who you can get in touch with, and the same reps who know your account and products.

Smarter fulfillment with proprietary technology

ShipBob integrates with Amazon seamlessly to fulfill FBM orders, so it’s easy to link your Amazon account to our proprietary technology. ShipBob’ dashboard gives you valuable insights into your fulfillment, orders, inventory, and other important business analytics. You can easily set reorder points to ensure you don’t run out of inventory and find all of the data you need.

How ShipBob compares to Amazon – told by our merchants

One night during quarantine when I was in the process of shipping a bunch of product to Amazon, I saw that all of our products no longer had the Prime badge. Using ShipBob, we were able to transition from FBA listings to FBM right away. This way, we didn’t see a huge drop in orders placed on Amazon. With FBM, our delivery times were much shorter than what FBA was showing on all of our products.

We place considerable expectations and pressure on shipping so we can get close to what Amazon does. With ShipBob, 100% of our orders are going out via 2-day shipping. We see that people are far more likely to order and keep ordering from us when 2-Day Express Shipping is an option.

Andrew Hardy

COO of Nature’s Ultra

ShipBob represents what I was looking for in a 3PL as a seller — the exact opposite of Amazon in terms of user interface, customer service, and harsh fees. In contrast to working in the Amazon fulfillment dashboard, which looks like a Bloomberg terminal upon opening it, the ShipBob dashboard is awesome and extremely user-friendly.

Steve Staffan

Founder and CEO of Brummell

We want to offer a custom experience for our customers and we can’t do that at a reasonable cost with Amazon. The flexibility to offer various combinations of products to our customers that we don’t get on Amazon has been really beneficial through ShipBob.

Pablo Gabatto

Business Operations Manager at Ample Foods

Operationally, having the right partner to work through our pain points is a big deal for us, and ShipBob helps us with all of them. In my eyes, ShipBob is competing against the Amazons of the world. Not only are they very cost-competitive and quick, they actually care.

Carl Protsch

Co-Founder of FLEO

We want the customer experience of purchasing on our website to be similar to Amazon Prime. This is possible with ShipBob, without inflating the shipping cost to an insane level. To do this, we store inventory in three of ShipBob’s fulfillment centers across the country, which map out nicely with our broad customer base.
