How SFC works in 100 Seconds
6 Easy Steps
Our system is designed so that it is easy and spontaneous for all the online merchants. After you login to the User center, you will be easily guided to a complete 6 basic steps that will guide you. Just follow the below instructions.
Step 1: Create Product
Each of the product (or SKU, Stock Keeping Unit) is stored in our fulfilment centres need to be defined in our database. You just need to provide product information. For example, name of the product, id, dimension, weight, image etc. If you are trading a fixed number of products, then you probably have to do this once or just a few times only. If your catalog of the products is expanding, then you must repeat this process whenever you have to add a new product. We also accept product datas in bulk by using either csv file or Web Service APIs (Application Programming Interfaces).
Step 2: Activate Plan
E-commerce sellers now need to activate their monthly plan to begin the process of using our warehouse fulfillment services. Select a plan that you prefer and in your budget. As soon as you activate your Plan, we will debit the Plan Fee from your prepaid account and the billing cycle will start there on. Therefore, we recommend you to activate your Plan when you are almost ready to send the products to us. Please ensure that there are sufficient funds before the activation. You can anyway top-up your account via Paypal, Wire Transfers, and most of the banks in China and Hong Kong.
You can edit your Plan anytime but please remember the new plan will only start only from the next billing date.
Step 3: Activate Products
After you have entered the information correctly, then activating (or enabling) the product is just a simple step. It is a confirmation to use the SKU in our online fulfillment system.
All the products in our warehouses must have barcodes in order to be processed. If your products don't have barcodes, you can use our system to generate and apply on all the products. We can always generate you the required barcodes. The barcode generation from our system is free of cost but if you want us to paste the barcode on the products, the service is of course is paid service.
Step 4: Create ASN + Send to SFC
You must create an ASN (Advanced Shipping Notice) to notify us of your incoming stocks. You can very easily notify us online at using our User Centre. You can print the ASN packing list and insert it into your product cartons. Packing lists and inventory counts should be matched with the products to be sent to us. Please ensure that the ASN number is placed or attached to the cover of the carton and then dispatch it to our warehouses. We will be storing your products and also update the inventory.
Step 5: Create Order
You can manually create a new order in our system whenever you close a sale. You have the option to batch the upload orders through a csv file. Advanced users can also choose to integrate with our system via the Web Service APIs.
Step 6: Submit Order
After reviewing the order, you have to submit it and we will handle the rest! We will pick-and-pack and ship directly to your customer.
