Shopify Fulfillment Network (SFN) is a fulfillment service that you can use to store your inventory and fulfill orders. When you receive an order, SFN picks and packs your products and ships them to your customer, with most shipments within the US delivered to your customer within two days. You can manage business data including shipment tracking, customer data, and inventory levels all in one place.

- You get access to fast, affordable shipping. SFN automatically chooses the best shipping option to deliver your products quickly and at the best rates.
