Warehousing and Fulfillment
PrintNinja is proud to partner with a proven, experienced, award-winning order fulfillment company, eFulfillment Service to offer warehousing and fulfillment to PrintNinja customers. We choose EFS as a partner because of their friendly terms for new customers, straightforward and competitive pricing, and their stellar reputation. Our partnership allows for us to get a reduced price for PrintNinja fulfillment customers and also allows us to make the logistics of the process seamless.
Your Own Inventory Portal
EFS allows you to monitor your inventory levels, orders, and shipments with their web-based software. You can stay up-to-date with inventory counts and have 24/7 access. EFS integrates with most popular shopping carts allowing you to fulfill your website orders quickly and efficiently. They also handle Kickstarter fulfillment orders and can ship rewards directly to your backers if you’re looking for a short-term engagement.
You may divert part or all of your order to the EFS warehouse which is located in Traverse City, MI to take advantage of their services. This will require a custom shipping quote (mention split shipping to EFS) and may add up to three weeks to the shipping time of these books (copies going elsewhere will take the normal amount of time).
Warehousing / Storage
Many customers don’t have the space to store thousands of books, so using an outside warehouse is a great way to relieve some of that burden. eFulfillment Service provides a low-cost inventory storage solution, and their friendly pricing means that you pay only for the amount of storage space you use, whether it’s 10 pallets, a few cartons, or just 1 cubic foot. EFS requires no minimums and does not penalize you if your inventory is stored for too long or if you want it back. They charge a reasonable fee of $0.08 per cubic foot of storage per week.
Bulk Fulfillment and Kickstarter
eFulfillment Service can provide on-going eCommerce order fulfillment services for your order as well as one-time fulfillment for Kickstarter orders and other crowdfunded orders. This is a great way to get your customers or Kickstarter backers their copies without having to drop hundreds of packages off at the post office. You can provide EFS with a list of addresses to send your books or games to multiple ways using their proprietary Fulfillment Control Panel. The FCP provides detailed, real-time reporting to provide merchants with an up-to-date overview of their SKU counts, orders, shipments, tracking information and more.
