Status Fulfilment Processing
What does Unfulfilled Status Mean?
A fulfillment status of ‘Unfulfilled’ indicates that the order has not yet been fulfilled. If your order status is “Unshipped”, it means that we have received your order and are currently waiting for our team to pick up and pack it. When your order is fulfilled, you will receive a shipping confirmation email with tracking information, and the order status will be updated to “Fulfilled”.
What does Fulfillment Mean?
Fulfillment is the process of reaching an agreement and completing a transaction. There are different types of fulfillment services, of which self-fulfillment, third-party fulfillment, and delivery are the three main types——fulfilled, unfulfilled, and partially fulfilled.
Fulfillment services are products that are managed by a third-party fulfillment warehouse or vendor and distributed to your customers. Fulfillment centers are more than just storing inventory and delivering goods. It has a huge team to complete any number of orders.
Order fulfillment is all the steps taken by the company from receiving a new order to delivering it to the customer. This includes warehousing, selecting and packaging products, shipping, and sending automated emails to customers to let them know that orders are in transit.
The order fulfillment process usually includes the following steps:
- Inventory Handling. Essentially, e-commerce companies have two ways to handle inventory. It can receive inventory internally and fulfill outsourcers to handle its inventory and all related tasks. If the first one is selected, it will automatically identify, calculate and detect and label and manage the system.
- Warehouse Management. It is the center of all processes, such as the warehousing, and storage of products and their components.
- Order Processing. Businesses that outsource order fulfillment don’t need to delve into the details of order processing because they’re just information transmitters.
- Accept or Return. To ensure efficient returns and exchanges of returned items, you need to design a clear return policy so that your buyers and employees can easily access them. Automating this step can help you avoid unnecessary clutter and errors.
What does Pending Fulfillment Status Mean?
When you check the status of an order, it is in the “pending” state, and in Honest Fulfillment, it means that the logistics warehouse has not yet begun the process of fulfilling the order. Pending shipment is a process that involves sorting and packing the items on an order into boxes ready for shipment. After completing this process, the order will get a shipping number and be ready to be shipped. When the situation we described earlier occurs, the status changes from Pending to Shipped.
What does Partial Fulfillment Status Mean?
There are three types of order statuses you’ll see about your order. We will now focus on the partial fulfillment status.
A ”partially Fulfilled” fulfillment status indicates that only part of the order has been fulfilled. And there is also a situation where your order may contain the remaining unshipped products.
We always do our best to ensure that you receive all the items ordered, but in some cases, you may see that your order may have been partially fulfilled. If this happens, the content available in the inventory will be picked and packed into the package and shipped to you, and you will receive an email with tracking information or items shipped. The balance will be reported to our system and refunded to you by the original payment method.
To find the perfect product fulfillment service, you should conduct market research and carefully plan your costs because you don’t have a budget as big as a large retailer. Some companies offer a one-month offer of free storage or free shipping. You can always contact them and try the service.
Starting a new business is never easy. Take your time and make sure you plan everything before reaching out to potential partners. When choosing the right thing for your business, make sure all the criteria are met and that the company can deliver what you need. Never rush into making any decisions and be sure to ask any necessary questions to make an informed decision.
