Every year, many eCommerce businesses see a huge surge of orders in the final quarter of the year. It’s no wonder, too. Gift-giving is a big part of the holidays, and that shows up in sales for Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas, and other major holidays.
Prepping for that surge in orders is no joke. Businesses have to prepare ahead of time to make sure that they are ready for a big influx of orders. The year 2020 promises to be even more extreme since most people are still (very reasonably) hesitant to leave their homes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, eCommerce sales could be as high as double what we saw last year.
Thankfully, when it comes to prepping for holiday fulfillment, no individual task is particularly difficult. There are just a lot of small tasks that need to be completed in rapid succession.
In this article, you’ll find a list of everything that you need to do to prep your eCommerce business for holiday fulfillment.
