What is Direct to Consumer Fulfillment?

Direct to consumer fulfillment involves using a third party logistics partner (3PL) to basically put the product in the hands of the consumer in the most seamless way possible, acting on behalf of the seller. The seller in this model still pays the shipping, whether those rates are on the 3PL’s negotiated contracts, via a shared contract through an online host, for example, or a seller’s direct contract. This is different from a drop shipping model, which commonly involves a retailer. Find out the difference between the two below or visit our Ecommerce Online Fulfillment Playlist to answer other questions.
