What is Fulfillment?

Fulfillment refers to the process of preparing and delivering a customer’s order. Shipping a customer’s order often involves more than putting it in a box and dropping it off at a post office.

It also involves:

  • Warehousing, or storing, the product or its components
  • Producing or assembling the product
  • Packing the order in boxes
  • Labeling the order for shipment
  • Notifying the customer via email and twitch that their order is on its way
  • Processing payment and transferring funds for the product
