What is drop shipping by definition?
No need to think about inventory or storage, just you and your business.
With the drop shipping business model, you can sell products in your online shop through a product supplier. So you as the owner don't have to worry about inventory or product storage, simply ship your orders on-demand from your supplier.

Reviews from successful dropshipping store owners
It was easy to get my shop up and running
I created my online shop with Printful & Storenvy because of its low startup costs, usability, and design of both websites, and built-in integration with other platforms. It was pretty easy to get my shop up and running with brand new products in time for the holidays!

$10 million in gross revenue
We decided to start an e-commerce business because we could start very very little cash. Using the print-on-demand model, we cold test numerous designs without spending money on buying stock. GearBunch has generated in excess of $10 million in gross revenue since its inception.
I am very happy with the service
I am very happy with the service that Printful offer. The quality of the prints are of a very high standard and a lot of my customers comment on the quality which is always good when you’re selling Art work.
Frequently Asked Questions
This depends on factors like your niche, profit margin, marketing strategy and target audience. Explore these factors to find the most profitable product for your business.
Printful won't charge you any starting or monthly fees, but some ecommerce platforms might. The average starting budget would be $50-100 to cover the costs of a domain name, ecommerce platform subscription and social media promotions. As for the products, we only charge you once an order is made. That means you don't need to purchase any products in advance.
Your profit will depend on your product design, platform, niche, and marketing strategy. When adding products to your store, you choose your retail price. Once your customer makes an order on your store we charge the fulfillment price. Meaning your retail price - Printful fulfillment charge = your profit.
You don't necessarily need to own a website, but you will need a platform to sell your products on. We have plenty of integrations that you can use for your online store. Look through them and find the best option for you in our ecommerce integrations list.
You generally have less control over the printing process and you might not be able to customize your products as much as you'd like to. Also, since it's so easy to get started with a business model like this, there will be a lot of people trying to do the same thing you are.
