It’s now easier than ever to start making money online, selling customized products through eCommerce platforms such as Shopify. The rise of dropshipping means you no longer need money to invest upfront, a place to store your goods or to negotiate complex and time-consuming shipping. Thanks to drop-shipping, selling on Shopify is now easier than ever.

Using a specialist drop-shipping specialist, such as Printful, can allow you to make the most of the Shopify print on-demand services that are now available. You can sell your branded products without any stress and without any money upfront.

Starting your store

All you need to do is start your Shopify store and present your brand how you want the world to see it. Think about the designs that you’re going to be offering – what makes you truly unique? What makes you stand out? What is going to have customers flocking?

When you’ve got your brand identity nailed, setting up your store is easy. All you do is connect your store’s back end to the Printful portal and start selecting the products you would like to offer for sale. You don’t need to put any money down, you can just get started.

Choose the products you want to offer the world – whether it is cushions, t-shirts, wall canvases, mugs, you can take your pick. Upload your designs and customize the final appearance of your products before offering them up for sale on your Shopify store.

How it actually works

The mechanics of drop-shipping and printing on demand couldn’t be easier. When a customer buys an item from your Shopify store, the order is automatically passed on to your drop-shipping partner – they’ll then print the item that has been bought to order.

It’ll then be packed up in your own branded packaging by an experienced shipping handler, before being posted off to the lucky buyer. It really is as simple as that. Drop-shipping involves you offering items for sale with your custom design, and your partner handling the logistics.

The service isn’t free, but you only pay for it when you sell an item. So you don’t need a single penny to your name to get started, because you’re only going to pay for the service out of the profit you’re making on each sale. It has never been easier to make money selling online.

It’s time to share your creativity with the world, and drop-shipping is the way to do it.
