When setting up an online retail business, you will need an eCommerce platform that will allow you to perform a variety of tasks – such as being able to build your website, change and manage your stock, process orders and provide you with a variety of admin tools.
There are many companies that provide this service, working on different platforms. eCommerce platforms such as Magento use open source technology to provide online retailers with a flexible online store system. It provides them with a range of tools to give control over managing stock, online sales and administration, as well as providing marketing and SEO tools.
However, once you have your Magento eCommerce platform set up, you need to think about how you will fulfil all your orders that are bound to come flooding in.
Choosing to outsource your Magento fulfilment may cost you less than you think.
For a start, you won’t need to hire and train staff, which means you won’t have to spend hours working on the PAYE every month. You also won’t need to hire temporary staff to cover the spike in orders during busy online shopping periods, such as Christmas or Black Friday. Lastly, if you choose a fulfilment service that has warehouse facilities, you won’t need to rent or buy a separate and secure space to house all your stock.
