How to Choose a Shipping Strategy for Your Online Store:

And there you go, just like that you’re all set up with your custom branded, online t-shirt store. And if you’ve followed along, your t-shirts are all synced up with printful, so when someone purchases a t-shirt, an order is automatically sent to printful, printed on your t-shirt of choice and sent directly to your customer.

And since you don’t have to worry about upfront inventory costs, or printing and shipping you’ll have plenty of time to focus on other aspects of growing and running your online t-shirt business.
