EBay sellers don't need big expensive computer systems to manage inventory, pick sales orders and ship customer deliveries.
You can use an on demand fulfilment provider to do all this for you. You only have to pay a monthly subscription plus postage. All your inventory and customer orders are tracked 24/7 in real time and you can access them from any where via the internet.
You don't need to install any software or buy any special hardware. They can integrate with your EBay store, or just about any web store and accounting packages so you don't have to re-enter data.
The benefits of an on demand fulfilment provider also mean you don't need to be tied into a warehouse contract, get credit approval from a freight company and you can come and go as you please. Whether you only want a few cartons stored in a single location OR pallets of stock in many locations you only pay for what you use.
If you are already an Ebay user then you will find this so easy.
Don't just take my word for it try this simple test. Call any of the major warehouse and trucking companies and ask them if you can have a quote for on demand warehousing (ie. no long term contracts, just pay as you go). Now listen as they explain why this is so complicated and how they have to come and meet with you to "understand your needs". If any of them can provide a written quote and access to a web based system to handle your orders. Then my test has failed.
However, if you find that getting a web based service for warehousing, order fulfilment and shipping for your Ebay orders is taking too much of your time get in touch with Australias leading on demand fulfilment provider (and vote "Yes" for this article).
