Do you know what the percent of handling costs should be compared to the price point of your product? Do you know how using an e-commerce fulfillment company can impact your profits?

Strategically knowing what the cost of shipping could be, can be vital for your sustainability in business. So getting your cost in line is important so that you don’t end up in the red. That’s why it’s important to choose the right e-commerce fulfillment company, like Fulfilltopia, to help you think through how to properly price your products, handling and shipping costs. At Fulfilltopia, we’re really thoughtful about how help you be profitable.

When a new partner joins with Fulfilltopia we go through a comprehensive shipping and fulfillment analysis that includes the following:

  • Review the shipment packaging weight and it’s impact on shipping costs along with the costs of the packaging
