Today, eCommerce stores are popping up everywhere and taking over the internet and your favorite social media sites. You can buy anything from technology to clothing! Many large big-box stores have a way for customers to purchase their products online such as Wal-Mart and Target. These larger stores have their own way of managing orders, including having their own distribution and fulfillment centers or using third-party logistics companies to achieve high efficiency and accuracy.
When it comes to packing orders by hand, there’s always the risk of the order being incorrectly packed. This is one of the most common types of order processing mistakes. To avoid packing the wrong products, you need to verify that the correct products are being packed by either comparing the product name or double-checking that the barcodes match.
Platforms like Shopify, Amazon, and eBay allow anyone to join the eCommerce industry. Even if you have one product to sell, you can create a store. If large stores use electronic services to achieve high efficiency and order accuracy, then why shouldn’t you? After all, your customers are just as important as theirs.
If you have many products with many variants then the process of verifying correct products becomes more time consuming and you may end up paying for more of your employee’s time and customer satisfaction.
Small and medium-sized stores generally have only a few employees who are handling the picking and packing of orders. When there is an influx of orders coming in (let’s say you are running a Facebook ads campaign to drive traffic/conversions), your employee’s may become overwhelmed and inefficient. This can lead to order mistakes which can make your customers unhappy and can put your store’s reputation at risk.
