What happens when you get an order

When you connect your store to Printful, every time you get an order, two transactions take place

1. How transactions work on your ecommerce store

Set up your retail price, and customers pay it using your store’s payment provider

Things to keep in mind

Consider various factors when setting your product prices

Shipping price

Charge your customers enough to cover Printful shipping fees, but don’t go overboard—expensive shipping is the number 1 reason for cart abandonment. Consider flat-rate shipping or increase your product prices and offer free shipping instead.

Non-Printful fees

Consider all the extra costs of running a business. These include product listing fees, ecommerce monthly fees, and paid advertising. Sum up these costs, calculate the average cost per product, and add it to your retail price.

To accept customer transactions, you need to set up a payment service provider on your store. You can set up direct bank transfers, online payment systems like PayPal, credit cards, and more. Choose a payment service provider that your target audience is comfortable using.

Keep in mind that the money customers pay you won’t go directly to Printful. You’ll receive it from your chosen payment provider. Then you’ll have to pay Printful for your orders.

What’s included in the Printful order price?

Base price

The base price includes the cost of the product and standard product customization (one design for the placement of your choice). The price for the same product might vary slightly due to currency exchange rates.

Shipping price

Shipping costs aren’t included in the product price and depend on various factors: the product amount, where the product is shipped from, and the order destination. To minimize costs, we always choose the fulfillment center nearest to the order destination. See our shipping fees here.

Other fees

Some product customization has extra costs. For example, fees for large prints or embroidery, additional design placements (like inside and outside product labels), one-time embroidery digitization fees, and fees for using Premium Images in your design.

The exact tax value applied to your order depends on the product, shipping origin, and shipping destination. If you submit your tax exemption documents, we won’t charge you tax. Find the overview of taxes that Printful charges in our guide.

The final price might be lower if any discounts apply to you. You get bulk discounts when ordering 25+ units of the same product, free digitization if your order contains 25+ embroidery items, and periodic discounts when we have a sale for specific products.


The total price of products and fulfillment will be consistently lower if you’re a member of Printful Growth or Printful Business. You can purchase a monthly subscription or become a member for free by reaching yearly sales goals.

Cut down the time spent working on my store

I really love Printful, it's been useful to cut down the time spent working on my store as I have a full-time job alongside this.




Printful has fulfilled over $100,000 in orders for me

I've been using Printful since 2017 and sold over $100,000 worth of print-on-demand products that they’ve fulfilled. I’m a big fan of them as a company and their support team is very helpful and quick to respond to any inquiries I’ve had.


Printful has been there since day one

My partner and I started Gay Pride Apparel in 2019 as a side business. After a year and a half, we quit our day jobs and decided to focus on our store full time. Printful has been there since day one. They have been our best partner by far.
