As print-on-demand experts since 2002, we know a thing or two about selling custom products. We’ve watched firsthand as things evolved from ordering wholesale, to selling in online marketplaces, and finally, the ability to drop-ship custom products through your website – no physical stock required. This change marked a significant shift in world of eCommerce, revolutionising the way people sell online.
As a result, there are loads of new factors to take into consideration. Wholesalers might have been more concerned with the quality of their physical stock, whereas artists in a marketplace might have spent more time focusing on making their designs pop in a sea of thousands.
Dropshippers, however, have an entirely new set of concerns unique to their business model. They must consider the cost of their eCommerce platform and product samples. They must choose between using mockups and real images in their store. They have to sort out delivery and customer service while producing high-quality images and content. It’s a lot to juggle.
