There are two transactions for every order

  • You charge your customer the retail price you set
  • Printful charges you for the product and fulfillment

You set your profit

Whatever is left over after Printful charges you is your profit! So you can set your retail prices as high or as low as you want. Take a look at Printful's product catalog for our prices (it includes fulfillment, but shipping is extra).
