Etsy is a unique marketplace that has taken the e-commerce industry by storm in recent years. But what is Etsy all about, how does their fulfillment work, and how can Full Throttle Fulfillment Solutions help?
What is Etsy?
Etsy is an e-commerce platform designed for consumers seeking unique creations. It is home to a variety of unique items, including handmade jewelry, vintage clothing, and collectibles. It is also the perfect online marketplace for sellers who offer these kinds of unique products, allowing them to tap into a highly relevant customer base that is constantly seeking niche items that sellers create. If you’re planning on selling through Etsy, the downside is that you’ll have to develop your own fulfillment strategy that gets orders to customers efficiently and that seamlessly works alongside your other channels. That’s where Full Throttle Fulfillment Solutions comes in.
How It Works
Etsy, as a platform, does not currently offer order fulfillment services such as picking and packing, shipping, and inventory storage. However, they do include a number of tools to help sellers with their personal fulfillment. Etsy utilizes shipping profiles for similar product listings, a free shipping guarantee option to improve your search result rankings, a smart pricing tool, and USPS, FedEx, and Canada Post shipping labels available for purchase through the online platform to make your life as a seller easier.
What Are the Pros and Cons?
Fortunately, Etsy does provide some shipping services and perks, including, shipping profiles and delivery policies, postage labels, free delivery guarantee, and easy shipping cost calculation. Unfortunately, Etsy does not provide customer service and leaves you stranded with your own resources (time, money, etc.) when it comes to fulfillment, which can be difficult for new sellers in the e-commerce marketplace.
