Most people are extremely used to seeing things as they are. Whether it is how relationships work or how various devices function, most of us don’t bother to look beneath the surface.
After all, how many times have you wondered what happens to the fuel in your car when you turn the ignition? Moreover, how many times have you heard of someone envying someone else’s relationship before realising that some form of effort must be involved in the relationship that isn’t outwardly visible?
We, at Inkjet Wholesale, like to delve deep into ideas and concepts. This is what we’ve been doing for the last 45 years. This is how we’ve come to the forefront of the aftermarket print industry in Australia. Essentially, we like to know how things function behind the curtain.
So, we’d like to extend the same thing to you. Have you ever wondered what happens once you press that glorious final button to confirm your order of printer cartridges from Inkjet Wholesale? Have you ever wondered what kind of a system kicks in when your order of printer cartridges from Inkjet Wholesale is being processed?
If you have, then here is a step by step explanation of what happens to your order of printer cartridges from Inkjet Wholesale.
You Confirm Your Order of Printer Cartridges on Our Website
Even though the process you follow to place your order of printer cartridges on our website is transparent and open, let’s go through it quickly for the sake of context. When you come to our website, you first navigate to the right product or combo page.
From here, you add the product or combo to the cart and then click “View Cart” to go to the cart page. If you came to our website by clicking on a promotional link, then you most probably ended up on your cart page with the product or combo already included.
From your cart page, if you click on “Proceed to Checkout”, you’ll be initiating the checkout process. The whole checkout portion of the Inkjet Wholesale website is protected by 256 bit SSL certification. This means that any personal or financial data you provide in this portion of the website will be completely safe and secure.
The behind the scenes systems of Inkjet Wholesale move into gear after you’ve logged in, provided your shipping address, and made the payment. The moment you order printer cartridges from Inkjet Wholesale and the order is confirmed to you, it is forwarded to our professionals at our warehouses and their APOS ordering and warehousing system.
Our warehouses are located in major cities of Australia such as Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Perth. Which warehouse your order of printer cartridges is sent to, depends upon your shipping address. As is obvious, the closest major centre is chosen automatically.
At The Warehouse
The professional receiving the details for your order of printer cartridges takes a large basket or tub and puts the purchased items in them.
His work is simple because each item in our warehouse has a designated location which is made possible through our APOS storing and warehousing system. Moreover, each product in our warehouses has a barcode which is already fed into the system. This allows our professionals to keep a track of every item in our warehouse.
The reasoning behind using a basket here is that it ensures that no item of the order is left behind. The professional carrying the tub containing the items ordered will take it to another professional with the order details from the APOS storing and warehousing system.
This second professional will verify each and every item in the order. His goal is to make sure that neither any item is left behind nor the wrong item included. You will notice that the verification is done by a second individual since this prevents mistakes from being made.
Packing Your Order
Your order of printer cartridges is not only verified during the collection and consolidation phase but also during the packing stage. After the order is verified by the second professional, it is packed by another professional.
Our professionals have been given strict instructions to follow while packing each and every order of printer cartridges. As is obvious, we don’t want our printer cartridges to reach you damaged.
Even though our courier service providers are top class and extremely careful, we have to make sure at our end that your printer cartridges are protected. This is why we have such an in-depth packing protocol for our warehouse professionals to follow.
Once your order of printer cartridges is packed, it is assigned a specific courier service or package carrier. Which carrier is assigned to your order of printer cartridges depends on a number of factors such as your address and the work load of the courier service provider.
Now, labels are printed and pasted on your order of printer cartridges. Before any labels are pasted, they are also checked and verified for accuracy.
Transferring To the Courier Service
After the packing and labelling is complete, your order of printer cartridges is placed in the right courier basket. These are big baskets or cages that we use to transfer prepared orders to our courier service providers.
Our courier service providers pick up packages from our warehouses in the evening of every working day. The pickup is recorded in our digital systems and updated on the interface of the website. In fact, every step is recorded in the online system which is how you can track your order.
The courier service then takes your order of printer cartridges to their regional depot. At this depot, the courier service providers’ own sorting processes kick in. These processes vary from one courier service provider to another but we’ve only picked the best.
This means that each of our courier service providers is highly regarded and super-efficient.
Travelling Through Australia
Despite the fact that we’ve picked the most central metropolises of Australia for our metropolises, some orders do need to travel a good distance to reach our customers.
This means that some orders of printer cartridges travel through air, some on land, and some only locally. If you are from the same city, then your order will be dispatched by the courier service provider the next morning.
If you live far from one of our warehouses, then the courier service providers will send your order of printer cartridges via air to your city. If the distance between your city and the city of our warehouse isn’t great, then your order of printer cartridges may be transported by road.
In any case, once your order of printer cartridges reaches your city, it will be dispatched as soon as possible in the next run of the delivery boys. Thus, your order will finally reach your doorstep to be welcomed with what we hope to be a surprised expression, a big grin, or at the very least a smile!
