Natural Product Fulfilment Services
More and more consumers are looking for online brands that offer products made with natural ingredients. This provides a lot of opportunity, but selling natural products online has become increasingly competitive in recent years.
Keeping up with a high volume of monthly orders and meeting customer expectations can be a challenge without a proper fulfilment process. Fortunately, ShipBob can help.
ShipBob is a best-in-class 3PL with an international fulfilment network. We help you save time and money while offering affordable shipping options for your customers, faster delivery, and more.
Before ShipBob I would have been terrified if an influencer posted about our product, and an instantaneous 1,000 orders came in, I would have had no way to handle that. Now I am totally ready for that.

- Eco-friendly products
- Food and beverage
- Makeup and cosmetics
- Organic products
- Vitamins and supplements
- And more
Benefits of partnering with a 3PL like ShipBob
ShipBob is a leading 3PL that partners with over 5,000 ecommerce businesses in a wide range of industries across the globe. ShipBob offers a growing global fulfilment network, 2-day shipping, premium 3PL software, and best-in-class customer support.
“First of all, their speed to scale and fast pick, pack, and ship process has been seamless, as our business grew 1,200% in a couple of weeks.
Second of all, their locations across the US — Touchland sells flammable goods that need to be shipped via ground, so ShipBob has been a great ally as they have fulfilment centres all over the US, facilitating a 2-3 day delivery time for any customer in the US.”
Andrea Lisbona, Founder & CEO of Touchland
Real-time inventory tracking
It’s important to have a system in place to optimise inventory levels and track inventory in real time to prevent stockouts. ShipBob offers built-in inventory management to help you make better decisions on when to order more stock, how much, and where to store it geographically.
Using the ShipBob dashboard, you can closely track inventory levels at each location, identify slow-moving inventory, set reorder notification points, and much more.
With ShipBob, ecommerce business owners can spend less time and money on inbound and outbound logistics, knowing that warehousing management is being taken care of. We provide a robust fulfilment centre network that offers safe and secure warehousing, and our logistics team ensures that products are safely stored.
From ShipBob’s dashboard, you have the option to assign a lot number to specific items stored in our fulfilment centre. After we receive your warehouse receiving order (WRO), we will store the items in separate locations, according to their lot number. You can learn more about our lot tracking process here.
“ShipBob completes a spot check for us to identify and locate such products and store them in a separate bin, so we can treat it as a separate SKU when shipping out those orders. That also saves me the time in having to deal with the return of those products to me.
We also have easy ways to manage subscription orders as well as expiration dates and lot numbers, so inventory goes in First In, First Out (FIFO).”
Leonie Lynch, Founder & CEO of Juspy
How ShipBob works
ShipBob’s software fully integrates with your ecommerce store to sync inventory and orders. Once we have your inventory, you can ship inventory to one or more of our fulfilment centre locations.
From the ShipBob dashboard, you can set reorder points to restock in time, view advanced data and analytics to understand performance, and much more.
Additionally, ShipBob’s partner ecosystem is extensive and offers tools for everything from marketing and taxes to returns management solutions.

With ShipBob’s network of fulfilment centres, you can strategically split your inventory across our locations to get your products from point A to point B more quickly and affordably. Storing inventory near your customers helps reduce the shipping zones and costs associated with shipping orders to faraway destinations.
Distributed inventory also helps you stay competitive by offering fast shipping to your customers. When an order is placed, ShipBob’s algorithm automatically selects the warehouse and courier that will give you the quickest turnaround at the best price. This strategy has helped our merchants bring 13% savings to their bottom line.
100% Coverage Across the Continental US
If you’re looking to expand into the United States, ShipBob has 2-Day Express Shipping that provides 100% coverage in the continental US from even just one fulfilment centre.
You can also distribute your inventory across ShipBob’s fulfilment centres across all regions of the United States. We leave it up to you to decide where you want us to store your inventory.
At ShipBob, we track your orders from A to Z. Filter orders by status, search for specific orders, see a quick timeline view of where your order is in the fulfilment process (e.g. when an order is picked, packed, or shipped), easily find shipping-related information (e.g., weights, dimensions, or courier service), and get a quick snapshot of any orders that require action.
With order management software for your direct-to-consumer and wholesale shipments, you can manage subscriptions, make changes to your orders post-purchase, map your store’s shipping options to ShipBob, and automatically share tracking information with your customers.
At ShipBob, we empower merchants to manage their inventory with the right tools and guidance. It’s easy to view the status of inventory and quantity on hand across locations at any point in time, identify slow-moving inventory with high storage costs, and gain insights into the performance of units sold over time by channel.
Our inventory management software helps you set reminders to proactively replenish inventory with reorder notifications, bundle your products for promotions, make inventory transfer requests, and much more.
Reporting and analytics
To provide you with visibility into our operations and performance, and also hold ourselves accountable, ShipBob’s free analytics tool is packed with charts to help you with everything from year-end reporting, to better supply chain decision-making.
Data can be a competitive advantage, and our reports show an analysis of which fulfilment centres you should stock, days of inventory left before you run out, impact of promotions on stock levels, each shipping method’s average cart value, shipping cost, and days in transit, your fulfilment cost per order, storage cost per unit, and much more.
End-to-end customer experience
We care about the customer experience as much as you and strive to be an extension of your team. From custom branded boxes to free plain packaging, ShipBob works with you to provide the unboxing experience you want. We also help you offer the fastest, most cost-effective shipping options to meet your customers’ expectations.
As soon as an order ships, tracking is pushed back to your store. We also offer return management services, allowing customers to generate return shipping labels and track returns, while getting your products processed and back into your available inventory as efficiently as possible.
