Bulk Order Fulfillment
Bulk Order Fulfilment (BOF for short) is a service The Game Crafter provides to its customers free of charge, that allows them to place a large order of games, get a full bulk pricing discount, and ship out those games to many different addresses.
BOF is especially useful if you're thinking of doing a crowd funding campaign. Through our bulk order fulfillment program, we can take the hassle out of mailing out all the games your customers ordered through your crowd funding campaign. You simply upload a spreadsheet of how many copies to send to which addresses, and we'll make the games and ship them out to all the locations for you. In addition, we'll even print your perks and rewards and ship those with the orders.

Crowd funding isn't the only use for BOF, however. Some people use it for shipping out multiple copies to conventions, retailers, reviewers, and play testers. For example, if you've got some retailers who will carry your game, you'll ship a few copies to them, you'll ship a copy to 3 or 4 reviewers, and then another 50 copies to you for an upcoming convention. In this way you're saving yourself money by getting a bulk discount on all those copies. You're also saving money and time by shipping copies direct to reviewers and retailers rather than shipping them to you first and then reshipping them to those locations. More information about the uses of BOF can be heard on The Official Game Crafter Podcast.
