I am looking for a solution to how to full-fill orders faster.
At the moment this is our process:
1. printing the orders on paper
2. packing orders
3. waiting for shipping carrier to pick up orders (SF express)
4. Scanning the tracking number bar codes with the shopify app, selecting the carrier and then sending the notification to customers.
I would like to speed this up with an app where we can pick and pack the orders and directly scan the tracking numbers, then once the order is picked up when can email the customers the tracking numbers.
I use Amazon FBA to auto fulfill Shopify orders, this is a low-cost solution. I've also worked with clients that use Deliverr.com and ShipBob. And of course there's Shopify Fulfillment Network as another option.
Here's my process: https://speedboostr.com/automate-order-fulfillment-on-shopify.
I recommend automating that now with a 3rd party service, in most cases it's a positive ROI investment and frees up time to focus on growing and scaling your business.
