    Hi, I am highly considering using a fulfillment service to warehouse, pack, and ship my online store's inventory. My question is how do I find a good company for this? There seem to be so many, is there a review of them anywhere or anything like that? Thanks!

    Try looking at vstore.com, they give a lot of options depending on your needs and seem to be very professional.

    I'd be careful of outsourcing your fulfillment. While it may seem like a good way to reduce costs
    and time you loose much control, especially quality control.

    I think it depends on what exactly you are selling. I know there are some warehouses which take care of the package/shipping and storing and all you have to do is just provide the store online.

    No one cares about your customers as much as you do. You may never have a problem but it only takes one time to really mess things up.

    If you do go with a fulfillment company check them out carefully and keep an eye on them.
