New to Warrior Forum, glad to be here!
I'm almost ready to launch my first business on the internet. I'm a one man show at this point.
I'm looking at my operation as a whole, short term and long term. My question, I'm prepared to fulfill orders myself.
This includes packaging and shipping. I don't know how things may start out, I may sell 1 or 20. My worst nightmare, being unable to handle the number of orders that I receive. I'm also looking at ways of cutting cost in regard to shipping. I'm looking into different options, one being Shippo for example. I was wondering if I could align myself with a company in which I supplied my product (which is shipped in a custom-made box along with merchandise) and they would fulfill orders. I was thinking, this would allow me to cut down on shipping cost, while with certainty being able to fulfill my orders in a professional and efficient manner.
I know a fee would be assessed for this service, but it seems worth it in the long run.
Is this possible? Is it too early to be thinking this way, since I'm just starting out?
Should I simply undertake this task myself?
These will be light packages, 17 x 11 picture in a wood frame, as well as blankets to start.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I thank God for sites like this, as many of us know starting something that you believe in can be a lonely process.
Take care and be safe
