An online skincare store is a great business to get into, but it can also be a very challenging one. You will find yourself up against many entrenched competitors. You will also quickly find that you need a fulfillment and logistics plan that allows you to quickly scale to meet increased customer demand.
For that reason, skincare and cosmetics ecommerce businesses will often partner with an order fulfillment provider like ShipBuddies.
What is Skincare Order Fulfillment?
Skincare order fulfillment simply refers to the service of safely storing inventory and when online orders are processed inventory is then picked, packed, and shipped off to customers.
Skincare products include products such as cosmetics, skincare creams and lotions, moisturizers, and acne creams. These products sometimes come in fragile containers that require additional precautions in receiving inventory, storage, and packaging for shipment.

ShipBuddies can help you to simplify your inventory management process with our industry leading software and technology. Our software integrates directly with your website, whether you are utilizing Shopify, WooCommerce, or another ecommerce platform. You will be able to easily see inventory levels as well as set automatic reorder points.
Many cosmetic and skincare products have expiration dates that need to be closely monitored. Our inventory management protocols will help you to make sure you always are shipping fresh stock out to your customers.
Skincare orders often involve several unique SKUs per order. Our inventory management system generates a picking list for our warehouse workers to get to the items quickly and efficiently. As items are taken off the shelves, they are scanned to update inventory levels in real-time.
