Effective eCommerce storage solutions for your Christmas stock

eCommerce storage solutions

Get to work on your eCommerce storage solutions now! 

Retail businesses everywhere will soon start to see an increase in sales as many buyers take to their laptops to purchase a majority of their Christmas presents this year. If you need to get to work on your eCommerce storage solutions before the Christmas rush, Jennings Storage is here to support you. 

Has Christmas crept up on anyone else this year? It seems as though last week we were enjoying the beautiful sunshine, and now, in a little over a month, we will be welcoming in the big day with a glass of bucks fizz and a huge turkey! 

With the pandemic changing the way we shop, 46% of customers have said that they will continue to shop online for all their Christmas presents rather than going to their local shopping centre to get everything done. 

It’s no wonder, therefore, that many eCommerce businesses begin their Christmas planning in August! If you haven’t thought about Christmas or it’s on your to-do list, there is still time, but we suggest you get to work on your plan today! 

Consider organising your stock in a central place, such as a local storage facility and ensuring you have enough packaging to get you through the season. 

Is your eCommerce supply chain ready for the Christmas rush?

As deliveries begin to get busier and orders start piling up towards the end of the year, you need to be sure that every part of your supply chain is ready and can handle the number of orders you may take, including your own eCommerce storage solution

Often, for smaller businesses, the owner is a big part of the supply chain, taking deliveries from suppliers and shipping out products when they have been purchased online. But if you are not prepared to take on the Christmas period, you may find it a bigger challenge than you can handle. 

Start preparing your supply chain now. Take a look at every element of your chain and try to find any weak links you may have. For example, do you plan to offer estimated delivery dates? 

If you haven’t thought this through, you could end up overpromising and under-delivering – leaving your customers less than impressed. 

It’s always better to add a few days onto your proposed date to allow for any delays in the postal system – particularly with the upcoming strikes combined with a busy time of year

With over 92% of customers returning to a store if purchasing and receiving are easy, it’s worth testing your complete system from your customer’s point of view. Order a product and see the process in action. 

Once it has been delivered, finish the process by returning the product using your standard procedure and fixing any chinks in the armour. 

For those with eCommerce storage solutions in the form of a storage unit or facility, this process can often be sped up and time reduced, thanks to the organisation of your chain. 

The benefits of eCommerce storage solutions with Jennings

Get organised before Christmas

If you are selling a variety of products, they can often be hard to keep track of. That’s why you need a dedicated eCommerce storage space where you can organise your products and reach them easily when it’s time to get them shipped out. 

Having an e-commerce storage solution in the form of a storage facility will not only give you space to work in but also give you the chance to organise your products. 

Scale up or down with your business 

If you plan to be busier during the Christmas months, but for the rest of the year, you are scaling back down, you need a space that works for you. Somewhere where you are only paying for the space you have and need rather than the space you first rented. 

Jennings Storage scales up and down with you to continue supporting your business no matter your size. 

Don’t take up space at home 

Your home should be a space where you can enjoy your own Christmas this year without worrying about tripping over your Christmas eCommerce stock. Seperate your business from your home life and get the best of both worlds!

Jennings Storage can support your eCommerce store this Christmas

Christmas is the time of year when UK retailers make a substantial amount of their annual sales. But, it can also be a time of year when the storage space that eCommerce stores need for their products is at its most restricted. 

With orders pouring in, eCommerce businesses need to ensure they have the space and capacity to cope with just how busy Christmas can get. 

One of the most effective ways of keeping your business running smoothly is to work with a local storage provider who can give you the space you need to store effectively and who will even take in your daily deliveries on your behalf!
