fulfilment for small business
If you run an online retailing business with low order volumes, or are thinking about starting one, one of the problems you will encounter is finding a fulfilment company.
This is because nearly all fulfilment companies need a certain amount of orders in order to achieve efficiency. The so called economies of scale.
And the reason they need order volumes to achieve economies of scale is because they use standard industry software to manage their warehouses and order processing. And being an industry standard means most fulfilment companies use the same or similar system.
That’s why we created our own system
How We Handle Low Order Volumes
From day one, myWarehouse has been focussed on helping small online retailers and start ups. And one of our main challenges was to obtain efficiencies with low order volumes
We looked and learned from different industries, like supermarkets and shipping containers, and decided to build a system that achieved efficiencies across all clients rather than requiring individual clients to generate a minimum volume.
This has resulted in us being the ONLY fulfilment company in the UK (apart from mighty Amazon FBA) to be capable of offering fulfilment to online sellers WITHOUT IMPOSING MINIMUM ORDER VOLUMES.
All we need to be efficient is have several clients and not one. Currently we serve over 200.
No Fixed Fees and No Set Up Fees
Because of the way we work we don’t need to charge like our competitors.
Positive Cashflow in any business is important but for Small businesses it is critical. And the last thing you want to spend money on are set up fees and monthly fixed fees that nearly all fulfilment companies charge.
Not myWarehouse. Instead we created the first pay-as-you-go order fulfilment service specifically for small online retailers.
This means you only pay per order, plus storage, and so the cash needed for fulfilment can be funded from the sale of your products.
No Minimum Fees and No Minimum Order Volumes
As we explained, the way we operate means we don’t need to impose minimum order volumes on any of our clients.
And because we operate efficiently across all client volumes we don’t impose minimum fees either. Typically, fulfilment companies charge for unnecessary services such as Account Management, Data Storage, Use of their IT system (because their monthly IT fees are high using inefficient licensed software?).
We Make It Simple To Move Your Fulfilment

The Importance of an Excellent Fulfilment Service
The online world can be brutal. Reviews and customer feedback now play a crucial role in minimising risk for new customers and building a brand online.
What is essential for online retailers is to have a reliable and timely order fulfilment service. When customers receive their orders accurately and on time they are likely to say good things about your business.
