Welcome to E-Comm Unboxed, our monthly newsletter!
Here we showcase major updates from the e-commerce world, our partners, and Soapbox.
In this edition of our newsletter, we recap August’s software updates, E-Comm Elevated Podcast episodes, blog posts, and more.
Now, let’s kick things off with a deep dive into pick, pack, and label.
When it comes to fulfilling e-commerce orders, three interconnected steps are vital: Pick, Pack, & Label. This is when the e-commerce seller selects the items needed for a particular order, packs them, and then labels the package for shipping.
While these steps might seem simple, they can become a significant pain point. However, there are ways to optimize these steps in order to save time and money. Head to our blog to read more, or check out our key takeaways below:

E-Comm Elevated, our Soapbox-produced podcast, provides a platform for thought leadership and to share exciting, transformational ideas in the digital commerce space. In August, we had the pleasure of interviewing three entrepreneurs with a wealth of knowledge on logistics and analytics.
Our first guest in August was Marilyn Yang, co-founder and CEO of Fun Gal Snacks. Marilyn shares the story of how her first product, Popadelics, was the result of finding a gap in the snack market, turning an unlikely vegetable into a flavorful chip.
If you’re ready to learn more about Marilyn’s approach to the CPG industry, how she handles feedback, getting her product to market, and so much more, tune in to our E-Comm Elevated Episode.
Next, our host Pete interviewed David Kong, founder and CEO of Glasvin. By combining his love of wine with a practical need, David managed to land a spot on the Forbes 30 under 30 list. Now, he's sharing his tips on reducing marketing costs and keeping an efficient supply chain.
