Ship From Store
Improve your stores' profitability
by taking full advantage of stock
Stock unification is the cornerstone of omnichannel enablement for retailers.
Amongst the numerous scenarios that stock unification makes possible, Ship From Store is the winner in terms of financial impact and customer satisfaction.
PREVENT ONLINE STOCK-OUTS
Like other cross-channel retailers, you’ll know that from time-to-time key products in your range become unavailable online. When demand is high, this costs you sales and customers!
However, in many cases these products can be found in your stores. So why not ship them from your stores?
OneStock allows you to make all your stock available, enabling seamless purchasing online of products that are then shipped from store. An orchestration algorithm assigns the order to the right store in order to minimise costs and delivery timelines.
The return on your investment is immediate, with web turnover increasing by up to 30%.
THE ADVANTAGES OF Ship From Store
Ship From Store allows you to utilise your shops as mini warehouses. You therefore:
Avoid stock-outs and increase customer satisfaction
Instantly increase the number of orders and turnover
Reduce costs and delivery times by shipping from a store close to the delivery address
Display your entire collection across all your channels
Balance stock across stores and reduce end of season markdowns
Boost staff engagement by helping them achieve their sales target

Ship From Store BASED ON UNIFIED STOCK
In Europe the term Ship From Store can cover all shipping scenarios from a point of sale. Across the Atlantic, this term refers only to the shipment of the product. The term Fulfil From Store is preferred as it includes the order being taken against a unified inventory, better illustrating the benefits of this solution.
