Owning an online store has a lot of advantages. First of all, you won’t have to worry about managing a physical store and you can also save yourself from paying the rent of a space for your wholesale jewelry business. Aside from that, you can even sell your products to more people especially those that are not from your area. Because of the internet they can take a look at your inventory, select the things they want to buy and pay you online.
But one of the challenges an online seller must face is how they are going to ship their product safely and on time. Another concern is keeping your items in the best condition by the time it reached your customers. If you’re new to jewelry business or if you’re already selling jewelry for quite some time now, it is still very important to learn the tricks and the proper way of handling and wrapping your products.
Here are some tips on how to pack your jewelry for shipment.
Choosing the right box
As much as possible, you must use two boxes when shipping your jewelry. This is especially true for high value jewelry and or for wholesale jewelry stores that accept bulk orders. Get an inner box to hold jewelry and a larger outer shipping box. This will ensure the safety of your shipment while it is being handled by your courier.
The inner box is the one that is specifically designed for rings, earrings or necklaces. If you’re into designing your jewelry box you can do so by adding jewelry tags and customizing your jewelry box depending on your theme and style. But if you want it to look professional, you can opt for the basic jewelry box that can be purchased on different jewelry supply stores online.
Keeping Jewelry in place
Remember to carefully pack your inner box to prevent the movement of the jewelry. You can use bubble wraps, shipping papers, newspapers or packing peanuts to keep your inner box in place and prevent any damage to your jewelry.
Pack the outer box in such a way that it won’t be damaged on the slightest pressure or bumps during shipping. Carefully and completely seal your boxes with quality tape. If a shipping company insists on packing the outer box themselves, ask them to pack it in such a way that it won’t be easily opened by unauthorized person.
Putting the right shipping information
It is always and absolutely necessary to write the correct shipping information of your customer together with their contact number. Also write legibly your address so they will know where to ship it in case they need to ship it back to you. On the outer box, eliminate all information that refers to the jewelry or the jeweler. This is one of the basic ways of ensuring your jewelry won’t be stolen while being shipped to its destination.
Packing is just one of the many things you must consider before shipping your jewelry. But if you take note of the tips above, you can start packing your jewelry the right way and ensure the safety of your products. This way you are sure to serve your customers and make them satisfied with their purchase.
