FAQS About Our Health & Beauty Fulfilment Service

Our order fulfilment software integrates with any ecommerce platform. We can connect to your marketplace accounts, your webshop and your other business systems, including inventory management, CRM and accounting software.

Each time an order is placed on any of your sales channels, our fulfilment system notifies our team and you can monitor the progress of your orders live online.We can arrange a demo of how this works when you contact us.

Yes, we have existing integrations with business systems such as Linnworks and Brightpearl. If you would like us to integrate with a system we don’t currently work with, we could integrate for an additional development fee.

Yes, we can despatch worldwide and work with the major carrier networks, including Royal Mail and DPD. Because of our high throughput, we’ve negotiated great prices from our shipping partners and can pass on the savings to our clients. Offer your customers next-day delivery and the ability to track their parcels. 

For international shipments, our system can automatically print customs declarations using the order, product and company information you provide.

We don’t have a generic price list because there is so much variety in what our clients need, what they sell and therefore the right solution for them. We prefer to have a chat with you so that we can calculate the time and resources involved, and give you a fair, accurate proposal.

Other fulfilment companies might share standardised prices with you without asking you any questions, only to adjust your fees a few weeks after you have moved your inventory to their warehouse.

Combine products into bundles, offer special deals, and cross-sell promotions – with Vdepot, you can still accurately track your stock levels through our inventory management platform. We just ask that you communicate with us in advance as to what bundles and promotions you are offering.

Yes, we can prepare larger orders to be sent to your retail partners – whether the order is placed via a wholesale marketplace (such as Faire) or uploaded manually onto our system. We can do a separate price for this – we’d just need to know the requirements for a typical wholesale order.

Depending on how many SKUs you have and your stock quantities, it takes on average 2 working days from Vdepot receiving your products to fulfilling customer orders. You can still accept orders on your webshop and marketplace accounts during that time – these orders will have 2 working days added to their delivery date. In some cases, we have been able to get our new clients set up in 1 working day. 

If you are switching to Vdepot from another fulfilment provider, you would need to speak to your current provider about how they would manage the closing of your account with them. 

We can make arrangements with you to mitigate disruption by planning phased implementation.

We have two premises located on the outskirts of Norwich, East of England – about a 2 hour drive from London.
