What is eCommerce Fulfillment Software?

What is eCommerce Fulfillment Software?

eCommerce fulfillment software supports businesses running shopfronts across multiple online platforms. They supply features and apps that support B2B interactions, accounting, and shipping across all the platforms you use.


We’ll cover what eCommerce fulfillment software can offer your business and how to navigate the features.

 

Primary features of an eCommerce fulfillment software

These are the most important and common areas businesses benefit from software management. 


Inventory control

  • Makes it easy to for you and your customers to access  your inventory. 
  • Your fulfillment software can help you stay well-stocked and reduce or prevent a customer from ordering stock you’ve run out of. 
  • Cloud support means your inventory details are available online anywhere.

Multi-channel management

Do you have more than one shopfront? For example, one on Amazon and another on Shopify. Some products require frequent updating, especially for their pricing. Instead of adding or updating a product individually on every shopfront, do it once. Multi-channel management will help you keep all of your shopfronts in sync, so they all show the same products, price, and details. 


Overall order processing

  • Automation of your order processing can pay for itself over and over again. 
  • This software can alert your customer as their order moves along the chain and notify them of shipping details. 
  • In the warehouses, the software prepares picking and shipping lists and fills out receipts and international forms to save you time and errors. 

Supply chain management software

Supply chain management software streamlines the process of moving products across the supply chain, from production to the end customer’s door. If your business works more with the supply chain, an ERP may be a great option for you.


Warehouse management systems

Warehouse management systems can simplify managing large amounts of inventory in and out of your warehouse or warehouses. Warehouse software can handle the automation of ordering, stocking, picking, and shipping of orders. 

 

Additional features to look for in an eCommerce fulfillment software

eCommerce integration

If you’re using common platforms like Amazon and Shopify, you’ll find order management software options often integrate with your shops. Integration makes order management, fulfillment, and shipping easy! Compare potential software with the storefronts you have and to find out if you’ll be able to integrate.


Automatically import new orders

  • Save time on the automation of new orders. Your software can automatically track and handle incoming orders on all channels.

Manually enter purchase orders

  • For jobs that are usually done by hand, not all fulfillment software handles eliminating and replacing this slow process well. When you need to adjust the price or volume of an order, your software can streamline the process and make it easy for shipping and record-keeping down the road.

Search and edit orders

  • When you can look up an order using this software, you can handle order questions effortlessly. With cloud access, you can review orders even on-the-fly. 

View invoices

  • Simplify accounting and check on orders with a simple click, rather than having to sift through so many stacks of papers.

View and manage inventory

  • Software makes inventory management reliable and fast. 
  • Know what you have on hand and when it’s time to order supplies without having to hand count everything.
  • With software based in the cloud, you can check inventory anywhere you have an internet connection. 

Offer inventory alerts

  • Inventory management can alert you when you’re low on supply and whether you have ordered more.

Verify and process returns

  • Management software makes complicated returns easier than ever by updating supply records and handling the order record for you.

Run reports and generate advanced analytics

  • Order fulfillment software generates reports about how your customers shop and provides statistics on nearly any question your business may have. These statistics help your business grow by helping you to better understand your customers.
