Product Drops and Limited Edition Fulfilment Services
One of the best things about having loyal customers is the ability to promote product drops and limited edition items.
But having high demand for special products will require a robust fulfilment strategy.
ShipBob can help you manage fulfilment and shipping for new products and special edition items, so you can meet customers expectations around fast and affordable shipping.
Quadrant operates using a drop model, meaning we offer a select number of units each release and they sell out really fast. We run on the idea of ‘if you’re quick enough, you can get a piece.’
Our last drop sold out in 18 minutes – it was amazing! The key to this model is ensuring we are able to fulfil a massive spike in demand within a reasonable timeframe. With ShipBob, we are able to trust that orders will get out in a timely manner.

What is product drops & limited edition fulfilment?
Product drops and limited edition fulfilment involves the picking, packing, and shipping of customer orders that are in high demand.
Fulfilment for new products that are highly anticipated, such as limited edition items, requires the ability to fulfil a high volume of orders that often come in all at once or within a short timeframe.
It also requires inventory distribution services, so inventory can be stored in multiple locations to meet demand across the US or even internationally.
Omnichannel fulfilment services for brands
If you’re an online business that promotes new, highly anticipated products or offers limited edition items, it might be time to partner with a fulfilment provider like ShipBob.
ShipBob offers fast fulfilment services and operates fulfilment centres across the globe. ShipBob’s fulfilment platform makes it easy to track orders from multiple sales channels in one place, track inventory in real time, and manage SKUs.
Fast, affordable shipping
To keep buyers engaged, it’s important to ship out samples as soon as possible. ShipBob offers fast fulfilment with a high order accuracy rate and affordable shipping.
With ShipBob’s 2-Day Express Program, you’re given 100% coverage for 2-Day Express across the continental United States, even from a single fulfilment centre.
“Since partnering with ShipBob, we now have an automated system for shipping and can focus our time on new product launches. We continually are able to reliably and quickly fulfil thousands of orders during a single apparel drop. This partly has to do with ShipBob saving us time by automating the order fulfilment process.”Jason Ton, CFO of 100 Thieves
International shipping and fulfilment
Although online shopping allows access to your products from customers all over the globe, international shipping services present entirely new challenges.
Different countries have various regulations, tariffs, taxes, and requirements for incoming shipments, making it difficult to navigate the international landscape.
But with ShipBob’s growing global fulfilment network, you can easily expand into new markets with ease and provide a consistent customer experience no matter where they live.
“I’ve also been fortunate to ship orders to customers from around the world. The process of shipping internationally to optimise costs has been easy. There’s no difference on my website for international shipping except adding tariff codes on products.
Otherwise ShipBob handles everything for me. Best of all, the price that ShipBob charges to ship internationally is less than it costs for me to print a USPS label myself.”Anastasia Allison, founder of Kula Cloth
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 easily control stock at each location, identify best-selling versus slow-moving inventory, set automatic reorder points, and much more.
“We roll out new products and designs on our website 1-3 times a month and send new inventory to ShipBob each week. It’s really easy to create new SKUs and restock existing ones using ShipBob’s technology, which is especially important with high inventory turnover.”Carl Protsch, Co-Founder of FLEO
