Need to set up your fulfillment station, but don't know where to start? Read on for some of our recommendations!
When it comes to fulfillment stations, we recommend that each team member who fulfills orders have their own station. Or, if you schedule a certain number of fulfillment employees at one time, you have enough fulfillment stations for each employee. So, if you have four (4) employees scheduled to fulfill orders, you would need four (4) fulfillment stations.
We walk through our recommended supplies for each station below.
Recommended Fulfillment Station Supplies
Each station will need a computer where the employee can log into CommentSold and fulfill orders.
Whether to use a Windows or Mac computer is up to you, but we recommend confirming it is compatible with your label printers and labeling printing software before making a purchase.
|Tera Wired Handheld Scanner||
This wired 2D barcode scanner uses a USB cable for connection.
There is no need to install any driver or software. It is compatible with Windows, Mac OS, iOS, and Android.
|Zebra Symbol DS9208 Scanner||
This Zebra scanner is a great option if you wish to scan products to display them on your live overlay.
It has both handheld and hands-free modes, which make scanning easy.
Though we highly recommend this scanner, CommentSold is also compatible with any 1D scanner that is a keyboard emulator.
Look for a thermal printer if you plan to print barcodes and labels.
If you're just starting out, we recommend using the Dymo 4XL. This thermal printer prints up to 53 labels per minute.
Another option from Dymo is the LabelWriter 450.
This thermal printer can print up to 51 addresses, file folders, and barcode labels per minute.
For higher volume shops, we recommend the Zebra ZT610.
This industrial printer is an absolute workhorse. It will allow you to print up to 14 labels per second.
|Dymo LabelWriter Shipping Labels, 4" x 6"||
Print extra-large labels to make shipping out packages a breeze.
Note: We strongly recommend you use Dymo-brand labels. Retailers have reported that "Dymo compatible" labels often do not work.
