I want to make sure that you all know about the free offer on the Beat the Rush Facebook page.

You’ll see a button that says “free download.” Click that, and if you like the page, you will be able to download the Shipping Worksheet for 2013.

This worksheet has instructions and guidance on how to calculate your deadlines to have your inventory shipped to FBA or ready to ship (if self-fulfilling) in time for the major holidays of Quarter Four. Those holidays are listed on the sheet, and it can be easily printed, completed and hung in a visible location. I hope it can be a help as you prepare for the busiest time in retail!
