eCommerce Packaging: The Best 3 Types For Your Online Business

December 19, 2022

Your eCommerce packaging not only defines your customers first interaction with your product, it also acts as your most direct touch point with each and every customer. For an eCommerce business, the ordering process is physically separated, as orders are placed online – your package arriving is the best chance you have to create memorable wow moments, from the first order through to the hundreth.

eommerce packaging has to tick a number of boxes; it has to be functional, it has to protect your products but it also has to create a lasting first impression. What does your brand stand for? What elements of your business do you want the customer to remember, and associate you with? Packaging can help cement these associations and create strong brand awareness.

Different Types Of eCommerce Packaging

There is a whole world of packaging options out there, but when it comes to eCommerce packaging there are a few stand-out options that provide the key elements necessary for successful eCcommerce packaging.

There is no better way to leave your mark than with a custom printed box. Make a statement by printing your logo or other recognizable brand artwork right onto the outside, or inside, of your box.

How To Pack Your TV Box

We understand that packing TV’s without the original packaging can be a stressful task.

Every Jetbox TV will be supplied with more than enough bubble wrap to wrap any size TV!

To put your TV box together, follow these instructions:

  1. Please start by taping the bottom of the box – pre-fold the flaps to make it easier to close.

  2. Use a blanket to cover your TV before applying bubble wrap.

  3. Lay it down (if the manufacturer recommendations specify that you can) and wrap it in bubble horizontally.

  4. Then wrap again vertically ensuring the corners, front and back are covered well. Tape up the bubble so that it doesn’t come undone.

  5. You can then slide the TV into the box, make sure it fits snugly and close the box with some strong tape.

Bulky Item Delivery Terms & Conditions

Some of our products are large, heavy and bulky and require extra care or special shipping. If your order requires a forklift we will advise before delivery, and if no forklift is available upon delivery a surcharge will apply.

Bulky deliveries that require hand delivery (but no forklift) to the first floor or above and require stair or lift access will also be subject to a delivery surcharge. If you advise at checkout that your delivery is above the ground floor, we will be in touch regarding the surcharge. This surcharge is from $50 per pallet.

Over & Under Runs

Manufacturing processes require machinery to work at quite high speeds. During production, some sheets may be damaged and need to be replaced. In some instances, we cannot replace the sheets at that time and you will be met with a slightly lower Quantity than ordered. This amount will be credited to you.

In most cases though, there will be overruns, as the machinery cannot come to a complete stop in an instant – we require a gradual slow down, which will give us more cartons produced, than what are ordered. These overruns are payable by the client. And taking them also helps save on recycling, which is more sustainable and better for the Environment in the long term.

If you require EXACT Quantities, we may have to make some boxes in a different grade than ordered, to make up your order in the Exact Qty required. These requests will also Incur higher unit costs. This cannot be avoided, as we must consider the recycling processes and costs involved, in helping to reduce our carbon footprint.
