Why is Shopify the best ecommerce platform to integrate into for a 3PL like CBF?

We know there are several reasons why Shopify is a great ecommerce platform to integrate into for a third-party logistics (3PL) provider:

  1. Easy Integration: Shopify has a well-documented API and easy-to-use platform, making it simple for CBF Fulfilment to integrate their 3PL systems and manage inventory, shipping, and fulfilment processes daily.
  2. Scalability: Shopify is a scalable platform that can grow with your e-commerce business. It offers different plans to meet the needs of businesses of all sizes, and its cloud-based infrastructure means that it can handle large amounts of traffic and transactions without any problems from most sectors.
  3. Extensive App Store: Shopify has an extensive app store with many integrations that can help you streamline your logistics operations. From inventory management to shipping automation, there are many apps available that can make our 3PL operations more efficient and personalised.
  4. Customer Support: Shopify has a dedicated support team that can help you with any issues that you may encounter. They are available 24/7 and can provide guidance on how to use the platform and troubleshoot any problems. Our Client Services Team know the API integration process like it's our own. We can help with any issues. But in most Shopify cases, the process is stable and efficient.
  5. Security and Reliability: Shopify is a secure and reliable platform that uses industry-standard security measures to protect customer data and ensure that transactions are processed securely. It also has a 99.99% uptime guarantee, ensuring that your customers can always access your store and place orders.
  6. Easy setup and Usability: Why would you make your life hard when it comes to the way your website looks and flows for a buyer?  Shopify enables you to build and manage your site simply and it looks great with regular updates, clients love it and they convert into sales. Try their upsell and cross-selling tools they may change your whole business model.

Overall, Shopify is a great choice for CBF Fulfilment and other 3PL providers looking to integrate with an ecommerce platform. Its ease of use, scalability, extensive app store, customer support, and security and reliability make it an ideal platform for managing inventory, shipping, and fulfilment operations.

"We assigned CBF Fulfilment as our third party logistics company for UK orders 2 years ago.

They have been nothing short of amazing to work with, they are extremely quick to despatch orders and have a team that are always so willing to help when needed.

As an ecommerce business owner that has worked with multiple 3PL companies and can safely say that CBF Fulfilment has been the best we have ever worked with in all the years."

Testimonial: Climbingvan - Books and Publication

"We run Climbingvan, a resource for helping people with self-build van conversions. Last year we wrote our book, The Van Conversion Bible, which explains exactly how to convert a campervan.
As we live full-time in our own van and work remotely from the road, it's not possible for us to manage our own fulfilment. CBF help us to get our book into the hands of our customers all across the country, as well as fulfilling our wholesale orders to larger suppliers. We appreciate their flexibility and the bespoke service they are able to offer us. The world of ecommerce was new to us, and the team at CBF have been really helpful in making everything possible for us, and are always friendly and quick to respond."

Testimonial: Lola + Blake - Clothing & Accessories

"I’ve been really pleased with the service I have received from CBF. Each business is unique, and mine certainly has a lot of personalisation options and additions that customers request. CBF worked to implement these and find solutions to ensure that my brand remained as personal as when I individually wrapped and sent each order myself from my dining room table! Recent reviews from customers have remained positive with special mentions to the quality of the luxury gift wrap and the nice touch of personal notes."

Testimonial: Dodo Pad - Books & Publication

"Moving to CBF has enabled us to improve our service to our own eCommerce customers – next day delivery and orders always despatched on time with full tracking – as well as navigate increasingly complex international shipping.
We are a small business with a peak at Christmas. CBF has given us the flexibility we needed, which was not possible when we were managing fulfilment in house."
