Social Media Influencer & Content Creator Fulfilment
As a content creator, you’re great at influencing buying behaviour.
Selling a product is an obvious next step in your influencer journey because you already have a large following to market to.
But that doesn’t mean shipping and fulfilment is your specialty. If you’re an online influencer launching a product, ShipBob can help you with your fulfilment and shipping needs.
As I grow my business, I’ve realised how important little details like analytics and insights are. If I can’t go in and see that information like I can in ShipBob, it’s going to hinder my ability to grow the business. Ultimately, we left our old small fulfilment centre because everything ShipBob offered blew them out of the water.

Why influencers and content creators partner with ShipBob
Creators like Emma Chamberlain selling coffee and Nichole Jacklyne with TikTok-frenzied slime —influencer-founded DTC brands are taking over ecommerce.
Social media influencers and creators that have built a following on TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube are finding opportunities to sell products their followers will love.
This is a great way for influencers to grow from just being marketers/advertisers to thinking like entrepreneurs.
But influencers still have to spend time creating fresh and new content to keep their followers hook. And selling a product online takes commitment, especially when it comes to managing inventory, picking and packing items, and navigating shipping.
That’s where ShipBob comes in. Here’s how ShipBob supports social media influencers and content creators with their ecommerce endeavors.
ShipBob makes it easy to integrate an online store and all other sales channels — including social media platforms — to its fulfilment platform.
Once you connect your sales channels to ShipBob’s technology, you can store inventory in one or more of our fulfilment centres.
Once orders are placed on online, they are sent to the near ShipBob location and our fulfilment experts pick and pack items and ship orders as fast as possible. We partner with top shipping carriers and negotiate bulk shipping rates to pass the savings on to you and your customers.
“In switching fulfilment companies, ShipBob made the transition process very professional and seamless. I really valued how structured it was — ShipBob made everything so incredibly easy! I know that I need that type of structure if I’m going to sustain this level of growth. In total, it only took me about 9 days to get started.”Nichole Jacklyne, Founder of Slime by Nichole Jacklyne
International shipping and global fulfilment centres
As an online influencer, you have the opportunity to attract customers from across the world. With ShipBob, you can sell to international customers with ease.
With the ability to ship packages to over 200 countries, ShipBob can help you reach your followers, no matter where they live. And with Delivered Duties Paid (DDP) shipping options, you can make the international shipping process seamless for customers.
“We just turned on DDP shipping as well to improve the cross-border shipping process. We have creators in Canada, Finland, and I recently talked to someone in Australia. We already ship to any country that accepts US mail, but DDP will help us reach more people and provide a better customer experience.
We look forward to scaling our growth more and having a partner like ShipBob to help.”Clint Sanders, VP of Operations at Bunker Branding
Additionally, ShipBob’s fulfilment centres are located around the globe, which allow you to speed up transit times and benefit from in-country delivery to avoid duties and import taxes.
You can manage inventory and track fulfilment from one login to get logistics transparency in real time, and gain access to ShipBob’s cloud-based WMS, standard SLAs, and experienced support team.
As an online influencer, chances are you have great connections with other, established brands. You can reach more customers by partnering with big box stores like Target, WalMart, and others.

I think we went through 5 warehouse management systems before we found ShipBob. By the time we were about to adopt ShipBob’s WMS, we were stuck in our ways and we weren’t sure how switching warehouse management systems again would go. But it turns out ShipBob’s system is set up perfectly for what we need.Clint Sanders, VP of Operations at Bunker Branding
