According to the latest news In mid-November, the cross-border e-commerce platform Temu of Pinduoduo has set the pre-sale mode of JIT (Just In Time). That is, the seller does not need to prepare the goods in advance, but the goods should be delivered to Temu Zhaoqing warehouse within 24 hours after the order is generated. Currently, sellers in Guangdong and nearby provinces are only allowed to participate in the model, and a deposit of 5,000 yuan is required.
For delayed delivery, Temu has imposed the following penalties:
1. If the goods are not delivered within 24 hours, the fine will be twice the value of the goods;
2. If the goods are not delivered within 48 hours, the fine will be 5 times the value of the goods;
3. If the goods are rejected due to quality or the contract cannot be performed on time due to shortage of goods, the fine shall be 5 times the value of the goods.
Delivery time and processing speed requirements
Some people think that the introduction of JIT mode is to reduce the inventory pressure on the platform, but from the perspective of the seller, in fact, the seller’s delivery time and processing speed is higher requirements.
Then the sellers play the JIT mode well, in fact, also improve their service quality and speed. It is obvious that the platform may therefore give traffic bias to JIT sellers and recommend quality vendors.
According to the cross-border platform Temu of Pin-Duo, merchants who are far away from Guangdong Province can either set up warehouses in Guangdong Province (such as partnering with other merchants) or choose third-party service providers such as Yuncang.
This provides different channel options for sellers to achieve the time requirements of delivery within 24 hours and delivery to the warehouse within 48 hours (the status of the inventory shows the delivery and receipt respectively).
The front compartment of Temu
DM domestic cloud warehouse in Guangdong play a strong advantage, can be used as Temu warehouse for the seller emergency stock, and for the seller to provide each batch of the first month free warehouse rent preferential, more than 12,000 square meters of warehouse area, for sellers to ensure sufficient storage capacity.
At the same time, DM has docking platform designated Shunfeng channel, delivery within 24 hours.
In addition, according to a series of warehousing rules formulated by Temu, the operation processing of DM domestic cloud warehouse also provides the sellers with great flexibility, including the operation of labeling, packaging specifications, etc., to achieve the same standard for JIT mode sellers as for ordinary stock mode.
Especially in the peak season may face the problem of warehouse bursting, domestic cloud warehouse has become a JIT mode, a cost and time optimal solution. It can not only ease the tension and control of the sellers on the timeliness and complex operation of logistics, but also let the sellers have more time and energy to turn to the product operation and marketing.
Finally, I also wish the sellers to adapt to the JIT mode as soon as possible and achieve great sales!
