Kickstarter fulfillment: The Making of The Glif
Kickstarter Blog, January 23, 2011
The Glif was one of the most successful kickstarter projects run. The team that put together The Glif wrote a detailed blog post that documents how they went from idea to finished product in 5 months.
“The next big problem to solve was order fulfillment…Enter Shipwire.com. Shipwire stores your inventory in globally located fulfillment centers, and will take care of fulfilling your orders…The great thing about Shipwire is they tie directly to the online store we built (using Shopify), so orders are sent from the store to the fulfillment centers, seamlessly. When Shipwire first received our inventory from the manufacturers, they shipped out over 7,000 orders (all of Kickstarter plus some online orders) within 24 hours. Awesome.” Read the Blog Post
