Being able to receive an order, have it fulfilled within an hour, and prepared for shipment and delivery in under 3 days is a critical component to our scalability and ability to delight our customers,” Jean said. “We made some early mistakes offering shipping discounts worldwide that ate our entire profits because we hadn’t streamlined distribution.”
Import taxes on individual orders were also an early concern. Guided by an entrepreneurial spirit, the Snorkl team views each “mistake” as an opportunity to learn and improve their processes.
Jean looked into localized distribution for his strongest markets — Canada and the US —and ultimately partnered with Fulfillment.com (FDC), to drastically reduce shipping costs and streamline order fulfillment.
This is where the functionality that Ecwid offers really makes a huge difference for us, and why we love it so much,” Jean reports. Ecwid is integrated into the platform so FDC can access our orders immediately and then dropship Snorkl’s to customers in the US and Canada. “We are really pleased with the seamless customer experience, helpful customer support, and reasonable pricing that doesn’t eat up our margins” Thomas added.
By integrating with a North American fulfillment partner the savings on shipping is so significant that Snorkl passes it on to their Canadian and US customers by giving free standard shipping as an added incentive for online purchase.
