The company expects to have more than a million registered business customers by the end of the year.
Any business can connect to Printful’s decorator services through their integration. For example, any business on Shopify is able to integrate with Printful by simply installing the Printful app.
Seamless Order Fulfillment
Offering an e-commerce integration to its customers is only the beginning. Each integration also comes with a simple-to-use order fulfillment system. Business customers are able to view pricing, shipping costs, and shipping speeds, all before placing their order. Once the order is placed on the Printful app, customers can track their order from apparel creation to fulfillment.
As an apparel decorator, it’s important to keep the fulfillment process as simple and clear for your customers as possible. By investing in their own e-commerce integrations, Printful has successfully created an order fulfillment system that anyone can use.
