2016 Christmas Dates for Direct Fulfillment and Fotomerchant Support
The holiday season is here. Yes, already! Here are the Direct Fulfillment and Fotomerchant Support dates that you need to know to ensure that your customers receive their orders before everyone closes their door for the year.
Please keep in mind that the courier and postal systems are under a lot of stress in the coming month, so consider promoting courier shipping options to your customers. For Australian Fotomerchant users, Australia Post is not the most reliable option so make sure that you allow for up to 10 business days for orders to be delivered.
These dates are subject to courier and postal service delivery schedules which are outside of our control.
