The Future of E-commerce
More clients, more sales, more revenue
As an apparel decorator, staying up-to-date with the latest developments in e-commerce can be difficult. Your clients are in new spaces and expect you to offer a seamless integration with their e-commerce platform of choice. Whether it’s Shopify, WooCommerce, BigCommerce, or Magento, the days of handling one-off integrations are over. You need a solution that allows you to manage clients, process orders, control inventory, and automate your fulfillment process.
What is a custom e-commerce integration?
It’s a software solution that allows you to manage client relationships and order processing seamlessly. Clients can plug-in to your product catalog, view pricing, add design files, and place orders all on their own. This saves you time and money spent working with new clients one-by-one. A custom e-commerce integration simplifies and automates your client relationships and order fulfillment processes.
The apparel decoration industry is falling behind. More and more clients are looking for apparel decorating solutions that are seamless, simple, and efficient. However, most of the apparel decoration industry is still offering one-off integrations that cost too much time and money.
These one-off integrations usually require about 20-60 minute per client, which isn’t scalable at all. At best, 1,000 new client integrations would take over 300 hours, and at worst, 1,000. Apparel decorators need an integration that can be effortlessly implemented and maintained across a wide range of online stores and e-commerce platforms.
Custom e-commerce integrations are the answer to this dilemma; a long-term, direct integration with clients on any e-commerce platform that requires no additional time whether it yields 10 or 10,000 additional store integrations.
Printful, one of the largest apparel decorators in the world, has mastered the concept of the custom e-commerce integration. A $64 million business, Printful is expected to reach one million registered partners by the end of the year, all while continuing to integrate with more e-commerce platforms.
