Subscription boxes are a hot commodity right now, selling everything from clothing to art supplies, pet toys to imported teas.
You spend dozens of hours each month sourcing and selecting the right blend of products for your valued customers. The wrong packaging and presentation can ruin the excitement your customers have receiving that box in the mail each month, waiting for their surprises.
Managing a subscription-based business model takes partnership with a skilled product fulfillment company to ensure the right products are packaged and shipped out each month, giving your customers the level of service they deserve.
The Benefits of Subscription-Based Fulfillment
Subscription boxes are becoming more popular with consumers always seeking out the latest and most unique product to try. To give them the right experience, working with a company that provides exceptional product fulfillment services offer a wealth of benefits to their clients, including:
Convenience for Both Parties
Packing and shipping dozens – even thousands – of unique boxes each month can be a logistical nightmare. There’s the need to receive individual shipments from a variety of retailers, unpacking each product, and then repacking all the products into one curated box.
The right fulfillment company can capably manage all the moving pieces of each subscription box, receiving, packing, and shipping boxes without you ever having to touch a single item. And, because of the regular nature of most subscription boxes, this fulfillment method provides a steady stream of income to the product fulfillment company.
Customers purchase subscription boxes because they receive a variety of new and interesting products for a set fee, often well below the total retail value of all the products inside.
By maintaining low overhead fulfillment costs, especially those related to packing and shipping each subscription box, you can better preserve your profit margins over time. In return, the stable fee the fulfillment company receives for their work helps them predict their income and preserve their own profit margins.
Customer loyalty is the key to a long-lasting, successful business. And the better service you can provide to your customers, both through the products you offer in each box and in the speed with which they receive their boxes each month, the more likely they will be to maintain your service.
The sheer amount of individual products necessary to maintain a thriving subscription box business can be overwhelming for small businesses and those with limited warehousing space.
And, if your subscription service features perishable or fragile items such as food products and cosmetics, improper storage can mean you risk ruining your stock and greatly impacting your budget.
Partnering with the right subscription-based order fulfillment service, such as Cannon Hill Logistics, means you benefit from professionally organized and managed warehousing space that can expand as your needs arise. Your customers still get the same great selection of products each month, but you don’t have to worry about them overrunning your storage space.
