Send your products to Whiplash for storage and we'll ship your orders on demand. You can delegate warehousing and shipping worries once and for all so you have time to work on your business instead of in your business.
But let's face it, do you really want your orders to look like they came from some factory that doesn't have a clue what's in the box? Fortunately, that's where Whiplash shines. Once you send your products to us for storage, you've got the power of a modern warehouse at your fingertips, without compromising the look and feel of your brand.
When I started my watch brand, I figured I could manage fulfillment myself. I thought I could store a few hundred watches in the space under the stairs to my basement, and I'd have no problem shipping a handful of packages each day, doing my labels online, driving to the post office to drop them off, etc.
When we got the second model in, I turned around and realized I had over a hundred thousand dollars worth of watches in my house - what if there was a fire? I couldn't get any more insurance coverage. I had no problem mailing out 10 or 20 packages at a time, but doing one or two was a pain, and a waste of time. I was driving to the post office and standing in line when I should have been running my business.
I hesitated to outsource, though. I'm bootstrapping the business, and every dollar counts. Whiplash's monthly storage and pick-and-pack fee seemed reasonable enough. But then James told me about their shipping insurance rates. Unbelievably, their shipping insurance costs so much less than what I was paying to USPS that it offsets the pick-and-pack fees - BOOM - Whiplash just paid for itself.
Now Whiplash has my inventory, so I'm not worried about having everything in my house. When someone buys a watch, I don't have to drive to the post office. I can take a vacation, and my business keeps going. The monthly storage is dirt cheap, the postage and packaging is a pass-through, and the insurance savings offsets the pick-and-pack costs.
It's a true "no-brainer" solution.
