How it works: Print-on-demand drop shipping

Printful print-on-demand drop shipping
helps you launch an online store with low risk and without investing
in printing equipment, storage or inventory! We handle all your fulfillment and shipping, so you can spend time
on the fun part of running a business. Here’s how. To get started, you need to create a Printful account,
which is free, and connect your online store. We connect with a bunch of ecommerce platforms, so you can choose the one that suits you best. Next, use our mockup generator to create product images with your designs for your store. Sync as many products as you want with your store. You’re only charged when
someone makes an actual order in your store. Your profit depends on the retail price you set. So let’s say you’re selling a t-shirt for $20 and our fulfillment price for that t-shirt is $12. That means you’ll get
an $8 profit for every t-shirt you sell. Once your store and products are ready – start selling, and we’ll take care of the rest! As soon as someone buys a product from your store, the order information is automatically sent to Printful. We charge you for fulfillment,
print and pack your product, and ship it directly to your customer under your brand. And that’s how Printful
print-on-demand drop shipping works! Hey, it’s Wes from Printful. I hope you found that video very helpful. All the links that we mentioned
can be found in the description below. Don’t forget to check out our other tutorials, subscribe to our YouTube channel

  1. Why advertise that fulfillment takes 2-7 business days when in reality 99% of orders take the full 7 days. Fulfillment is super slow, just say 7 days.

  2. I have a question about the prices. Do I pay the 12 dollars (for example) up front for the tshirt and then see the profit of 8 dollars?
    Or, do I have to pay the 12 dollars and then get the 8 dollars in profit?

  3. I've been checking out Spreadshirt, Redbubble, and Printful. The first two include a marketplace to sell. Yours doesn't, but then the cost is lower. Since I don't have a website, nor do I plan to have a dedicated one, am I better off with either of the first two options? What additional work would I need to do in order to make Printful my choice? I have at least 50 ideas for shirts, all with a common theme. Do I have to create an LLC, copyright each design,, set up a business account with PayPal, do Facebook advertising (costly), try to get listed on Amazon (that could be tough), create a Shopify store, etc. etc.? Any feedback, or useful links, would be greatly appreciated.

  4. Under How to setup billing, it basically says the designer pays the printing cost first, is there no way to make it where the customer pays for printing up front? seems really complicated to do it the current way.

  5. Does this mean I have to have a credit card or PayPal account with cash to get started, or does Printful take their cut from the sale? The video states I only get charged when a sale is made.
