Growth Plan FAQs

These are some of our more popular FAQs. We understand the needs of each merchant can vary, so we ask that you please review our Help Center to confirm you’re onboard with our policies and procedures before sending your inventory to ShipBob.

I understand this is a free self onboarding program, but what if I want to work with a dedicated specialist?

Merchants interested in working with a Growth Plan Implementation Specialist are encouraged to learn more about our paid Growth Plan Premium Onboarding option.

Can you confirm the requirements before I ship my product to your fulfillment center?

  • USD $275 monthly fulfillment minimum. Learn more about fulfillment minimums here.
  • Have no more than 50 unique products, including size, color, and other variation.
  • Individual items must not exceed 50 lbs.
  • Individual items must not exceed 48 inches.
  • Your item is not on our ShipBob Prohibited and Restricted Items Policy.

Do my items need to arrive with a barcode?

We require that all apparel items arrive individually bagged and individually barcoded.

We recommend barcodes for everything else. Learn more about our barcode requirements here.

Can I send inventory from my manufacturer/supplier/Amazon directly to you?

No, we require that all inbound inventory arrives with a physical copy of the WRO. If your manufacturer/supplier/Amazon is unable to meet these requirements, then we cannot accept this inventory and all packages will be considered Unidentified Receiving Orders. These will be subject to additional delays and fees. Learn more about Unidentified Receiving Orders.

What happens if Shipbob fulfills my order incorrectly?

We do our best to fulfill every order as perfectly as we can at all times. However, we are human and, on occasion, we do make mistakes! For any such error, we want to ensure that we provide a remedy for the mistake and come to a swift resolution. Please view our Operations Errors Policies to learn more.

This all sounds too good, what’s the catch?

We understand that you’re as excited as us to get started, but we ask that you please review ShipBob’s Turnaround Times, Policies, and SLAs and Understand Product Limitations and Restrictions before sending any inventory to ShipBob. We recommend joining our Live Onboarding Sessions to speak with onboarding team and have any outstanding questions answered.
