Calculating your order fulfillment costs
To make sure you only pay for what you need and deliver maximum value for your business, we calculate order fulfillment fees based on a number of factors, including:
The number of different SKUs being handled
How frequently stock is replenished
Typical order volumes with high volume discounts
The average number of items per order
The need for additional services like kitting and assembly
Where orders are being shipped
Which type of shipping service is being used
Quantities of stock for inventory storage costs (how much warehouse space needed in our fulfillment centre)
As you can see, there’s no such thing as one-size-fits-all when it comes to order fulfillment costs. That’s why it’s best to request a discovery consultation with one of our fulfillment experts, where we can calculate fulfillment costs tailored to your specific business needs.
Clear minimum order volumes
For complete transparency, we generally look for a minimum order volume of 100 orders per month. Why? This is the order rate at which outsourcing fulfillment becomes cost-effective through a third-party provider. After all, we want our services to be most beneficial to you.
In short, it makes financial sense for retailers to leverage a fulfillment provider if they are sending at least 100 orders each month. It allows us to offer lower fulfillment pricing per product to keep your sales profitable. This being said, we are open to working with startups who have strong products and marketing in place to scale up order volumes over a 3-6 month period.
Discounts for high order volumes
While our minimum order volume is typically 100 per month, there’s no limit if you want to go much higher than that figure. Quite the opposite, in fact, with millions of items fulfilled annually through our high-capacity fulfillment centre.
Autofulfil offers high-volume order discounts for our services, so the more you sell, the higher the cost savings. In turn, this allows you to minimise the order fulfillment cost per order – and maximise your profits as you scale.
