Does anyone have any suggestions as to the best way to fulfill orders from 2 different countries (US and Canada) through a single site?
This is the setup I'm considering:
Can Shipbob and Shipstation apps be connected to the same store and work okay?
Can I get Shipbob to only import US orders, and Shipstation to only import Canadian orders?
Or is there any other setup that would be more ideal?
That sounds like a reasonable approach to me.
For the details about both of those apps I would ask them.
To give you some idea here's my preferred setup:
- store inventory in US Amazon warehouses, use Amazon FBA to fulfill orders on Amazon and Shopify USA customers.
- use a fulfillment company or do in-house for international orders (volume dictates the use of a 3rd party fulfillment center or not).
- I've also ran a setup where inventory is stored in Amazon CA and UK, and fulfill orders in those regions from those fulfillment centers.
Shopify has a fulfillment program as well, I think if you're doing 10+ orders a day you can apply for that.
With any solution you choose, I would have a single website. I've seen regional based websites do well, but with a single website you collect all your links and traffic in a single spot. It's easier to manage and will have stronger SEO.
