What is ShipBob?

ShipBob is one of the leading 3PLs for ecommerce merchants. With ShipBob, you can outsource fulfillment and offer an Amazon-like experience to your customers. Instead of spending heavy amounts of capital to build up a fulfillment network to compete with enterprise brands, ShipBob can provide it for you.

Even better, ShipBob can help grow your ecommerce business. Through their 2-day fulfillment service, merchants can offer 2-day shipping to their customers to help improve conversion rates and prevent customers from switching to Amazon or other brands.

Example workflows

ShipBob has helped fast-growing ecommerce companies like Calm Blanket, Fleo, Rebel Girls, Natures Ultra, and so many more through their 3PL services and technology. Automated workflows are essential to grow your business and build strong customer relationships.

To provide you a clear understanding of the helpful workflows that we offer with ShipBob, we’ve listed a few examples below.

Back in stock notifications

Notifying your customers about restocks of bestselling products can re-engage shoppers with your store. Through real-time stock inventory notifications that are automatically sent to users, this pushes for higher conversion rates.

Customers can opt-in for email or SMS text message notifications to update them when their item of interest is back in stock. You don’t have to keep an eye on inventory or stock since this workflow will communicate directly with your customers. Back in stock notifications on certain sizes or colors of products can easily convert customers back to your store.

Send delivery updates via email or SMS

Customers can also receive updates through email or SMS messages on their purchases through ShipBob and Alloy’s integration. These automated delivery updates provide customers a sense of relief about their orders. Moreover, this workflow saves you time starting from checkout, delivery and even returns. By providing your customers with personalized delivery updates, customer satisfaction can be increased.

Pause or resume advertising based on inventory count

Automating advertising is one of the best ways to free up time while also managing your brand image. For example, resuming advertising for a popular item places users in anticipation of the next product drop while ensuring that customers return to your ecommerce store. With ShipBob and Alloy’s integration, advertising becomes a lot simpler.

The ability to pause or resume ads automatically helps ease up your time since your inventory stock can fluctuate frequently. This workflow can control your advertising strategy and easily promote your products to new and returning users.
