What is outsourcing for eCommerce?

Outsourcing in the eCommerce industry is the process of sending certain tasks such as customer service, chat management, digital marketing, general administration and more, to a team or team member outside of your organisation - typically overseas. It can increase staff satisfaction, improve your profit margins and turnaround times.

What are the current eCommerce industry outsourcing trends?

The global eCommerce market is expected to grow to approximately $16 billion by 2027, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.9% from 2020 to 2027. This growth can be largely attributed to the implementation of omnichannel business models, the increased use of social media, the adoption of internet services and advancements in payment modes. Advanced technology such as virtual reality for personalised shopping experiences is one of the many trends contributing to the eCommerce market growth.

The eCommerce market is booming. The COVID-19 pandemic increased online sales globally. Consumer lifestyles and buying patterns have changed, enabling them to switch from purchasing in traditional bricks and mortar stores to online. eCommerce businesses need to embrace this new reality and adapt their current business model to meet consumer demand - or risk being left behind.


Why outsource in eCommerce?

For eCommerce businesses to keep up with this expected continued growth, they need to ensure they are investing wisely in quality talent to support their ability to adapt, scale and grow. The answer: outsourcing. By engaging a larger global talent pool, you’ll be able to increase your profits and scale easily to meet demand.

Outsourcing solutions allow eCommerce companies to benefit from increased efficiency gains while also completing a variety of tasks for a fraction of the price. Many of our clients outsource eCommerce services and experience these benefits first-hand.

Outsourcing companies - how to choose your provider

Benefits of outsourcing for eCommerce businesses include improved productivity, efficiency, retention rates and staff satisfaction. It’s a process that can save your organisation up to 70% on employment costs compared with hiring talent locally. However, choosing the wrong outsourcing provider can be detrimental to your success.

Selecting a provider with values that align with your business objectives is the ultimate goal. Doing so will ensure your outsourcing journey is nothing short of successful. How do you know you’re choosing the right outsourcing provider? Start by asking the right questions. These questions should drill into their operations so that you’re left with a thorough understanding of how they operate. Some of these questions may include:

  • Can you detail your standard security policies and infrastructure to manage data, security and privacy?
  • What tools do you have in place to ensure staff members remain online and productive 100% of the time?
  • What productivity reporting do you provide as a standard?
  • If things are not working out, what is the notice period and termination fees?
  • How does your recruitment process ensure you find the best candidate for my role?

This step is absolutely crucial in ensuring your outsourcing journey is a success. Remember, not all outsourcing providers are the same. They all have different protocols, facilities, T&Cs and contracts. Analyse, compare and choose the provider that resonates with your business the most.
