In every sense, ShipBob has represented the word ‘partner’ really well. We always have competition reaching out, but the reason we haven’t left is because ShipBob’s been there for us and will continue to be there for us. We can save a dollar, great, but we’d lose the potency of that relationship. ShipBob’s been really critical structure to our company.

What is children’s goods fulfillment?
Selling goods for kids online has expanded greatly, making it easy for busy parents, as well as teaches and educators, to find what they need. But whether it’s products for back-to-school items, special birthdays and celebrations, or for educational purposes — selling products for kids online requires a strategic fulfillment strategy to stay competitive.
ShipBob’s order fulfillment process
ShipBob takes care of the entire order fulfillment process for you, so you can save time, money, and headaches. Here’s an overview of ShipBob’s proven fulfillment process.
Step 1: Receiving
Once you fill out a Warehouse Receiving Order (WRO), which includes an overview of what we’re receiving, you can ship your inventory to one or more of our fulfillment centers to be stored.
By distributing your inventory across out network, you can enable affordable, 2-day shipping for customers by reducing the amount of shipping zones a package must travel through to reach its destination.
Each SKU has a separate dedicated storage location, either on a shelf, in a bin, or on a pallet.
Step 2: Picking and packing
As soon as an order is placed on your online store, ShipBob automatically receives the order and it is assigned to a warehouse picking team or a picker. Our picking team receives a picking list of the items, quantities, and storage locations at the facility to collect the ordered products from their respective locations.
For packing, we offer standard packing materials — brown boxes, yellow bubble mailers, white poly bags, packing tape, and dunnage — at no extra cost. For a more custom solution, we also allow the use of custom packaging.
We also offer subscription or recurring order capabilities, so you can offer a reliable subscription service for your customers.
“I find you really get to engage with your customers more when you have a subscription relationship. For Jetson, it means that orders to our base are less transactional and more educational or entertaining.”
Stefan Weitz, CEO and founder of Jetson
Step 3: Shipping
ShipBob offers volume shipping discounts from major carriers such as FedEx, DHL, USPS, and UPS.
Last-mile delivery is one of the most expensive parts of the fulfillment process, so shipping discounts can save your business lots of money in the long run.
ShipBob has been a great partner as Ample has grown. Our focus is to grow our business, and that will not be achieved by packing up orders, sending out boxes, and dealing with enormous carriers like FedEx and UPS ourselves. That’s what ShipBob has mastered.”
Pablo Gabatto, Business Operations Manager at Ample Foods
