On demand fulfillment is so different from having to private label manufacture and purchase inventory upfront. Let’s say you do not have an option of on demand fulfillment and you want to start your own brand of supplements.
First, you would have to a find manufacturer willing to private label your product. Every manufacturer is busy serving large clients, and your goal is to spend less money on developing inventory. You are so excited to start, but nobody is even willing to discuss anything further with you, when you ask for 5 bottles to try.
Minimum Order Quantity
Further, every manufacturer has a minimum order quantity of 2,000 bottles. So in order to try something, you have to order 2,000 bottles of product minimum. Private label manufacturers of supplements, beauty products and vitamins, do not print labels or boxes in house. You have to find printing company. Every printing company requires you to buy 10,000 labels minimum. They offer you smaller label quantities, but the difference in price between 1,000 labels and 10,000 labels will be around $300. Go figure. So now you paid over $1000 for the labels and shipped it to your private label manufacturer for labeling your product. Let’s say you are buying product at $4 per bottle.
In order to get your product out of the door, you already invested in 2,000 bottles, plus 1,000 labels, roughly $9,000 for just one product. I’m not even talking about production times. Labels take about 2 weeks and manufacturing of your product is 3-8 weeks, depending on how busy the manufacturer is with their existing clients. So now you waited, paid all the money and you have your product on hand. You list it on Amazon only to find out that you are selling one bottle per week. Now you are stuck with the problem of this product not selling at all and you have years worth of useless inventory that will expire in two years. Trust me 50% of people like that end up throwing it in the garbage after it expires. On demand fulfillment solves upfront investment problems.
