Let's get started!
How Do You Manage Peak Delivery Periods?
If you are a dropshipper or a mini importer, peak season is a blessing and can be a burden if you don't plan properly. Peak season, especially the four weeks leading up to Black Friday accounts for a large part of holiday shipping. Preparation is key to effectively managing the surge in orders and maintaining a smooth shipping process. Here are some strategies to help you deliver on time during peak season:
Create and Communicate Your Holiday Shipping Policy
Avoid confusion and manage customer expectations by creating a clear and comprehensive holiday shipping policy (like this one!😉). This policy should address essential aspects such as returns, shipping cutoff dates, and delivery estimates.
Use Affordable and Fast Couriers
Not to toot our horn, but Heroshe is the best shipping method from the UK & US to Nigeria and Ghana. Our speed of delivery is surpassed only by the big boys - DHL, UPS, and FedEx - and we charge 90% less than them!! Don't just take our word for it; witness the evidence of our exceptional service through a real-life test we conducted.
Buy Key Packaging and Supplies in Advance
To streamline your fulfillment process, stock up on essential packaging materials and supplies well in advance. Order shipping boxes online from trusted suppliers to ensure you have everything when the holiday rush begins.
Create a Smooth Post-Purchase Experience
Be like Heroshe and create a smooth experience for your customers. Use a transparent returns process and give customers easy access to tracking information. By ensuring transparency and effective communication, you can foster customer trust and loyalty.
