Crowdfunding is the new way to raise funds for your project, business, or idea. It has become an increasingly popular method as a result of sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Some people are hesitant to use crowdfunding because they don’t know how it works or if their project will be successful.
Thankfully there are many companies that provide services for fulfilling orders who do all the hard work so you can focus on marketing and promotion! They take care of everything from order fulfillment to customer service which makes running a campaign easier than ever before!
Order fulfillment is a large part of a successful crowdfunding campaign that often goes unaccounted for. Nearly all crowdfunding sites make the fulfillment of orders a part of their contract. If you do not fulfill each order, you could find yourself in hot water! That’s where a company that specializes in logistics and order fulfillment can come in. These companies handle everything from product quality control to warehousing and distribution ensuring that you can focus on the success of your project.
ShipBuddies Crowdfunding Fulfillment
ShipBuddies can provide the support you need to have a successful Kickstarter or Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign, but we are not limited to just those popular platforms. We can help you with your order fulfillment for a crowdfunding campaign on any platform.
ShipBuddies can store your inventory, and pick, pack, and ship all the crowdfunding rewards.
Benefits of Using ShipBuddies Crowdfunding Fulfillment Services
These are just some of the benefits you will enjoy by allowing ShipBuddies to handle your order fulfillment:
Fast, Convenient Shipping
We leverage the large shipping volume of our combined client base in order to negotiate the best rates with shipping carriers, including USPS, UPS, FedEx, and DHL. We pass those savings on to you, our customers.
This allows you to offer your backers fast, convenient, and reliable options for receiving their rewards. You can even offer 2-day shipping at an affordable rate.
Inventory Storage and Management
ShipBuddies will handle the storage of all your rewards. Crowdfunding campaigns, especially when they go viral, can require a lot of inventory storage in their early stages.
You may not require keeping that same level of inventory as your business launches and shifts from its crowdfunding stage to a more traditional everyday business. Leveraging a third-party logistics partner allows you to not have to take the risk of securing a storage facility that is larger than what you may need in your first few years of business after your crowdfunding period.
You can keep as much or as little inventory on hand as you need with us.
Our software will also allow you to track your inventory easily. When we receive orders from you, we will be able to update your inventory levels and let you track it in real-time.
Outstanding Customer Service and Order Accuracy
Crowdfunding campaigns often involve sending out a lot of orders in a short amount of time. If you are not experienced in picking your inventory and packing the orders appropriately, this can lead to errors.
Utilizing an order fulfillment partner that is used to packing and shipping a high volume of orders on a daily basis will make sure that your orders are shipped more accurately to your backers.
ShipBuddies will also provide you and them with tracking information for their order as well as handle any reshipments that need to be sent.
Providing your backers with a great customer experience will make them more likely to back future crowdfunding campaigns or other ecommerce endeavors you may embark on.

ShipBuddies specializes in storing, packing, and shipping out orders quickly and accurately allowing you to put your focus into your product and marketing your crowdfunding campaign.
