What is Shopify print on demand?

Print on demand

POD is a retail fulfillment method where custom products are printed on demand after the customer has placed an order for them. Gelato’s Shopify print on demand (Shopify POD) integration is a great way for ecommerce sellers to focus on designing and marketing their products, while Gelato takes care of sustainable order fulfillment and delivery.

Does Shopify offer print on demand natively?

Shopify uses an integration of Gelato’s print on demand (or POD) platform. When an order is placed on a Shopify store, Gelato automatically sends your order to the nearest production fulfillment center, where the products are produced and delivered to your customer. This means there is no inventory, and the merchandise requires zero management, storage, or security.

Why sell on Shopify?

Shopify is quick and easy to set up and intuitive to use. Whether a beginner or a seasoned and experienced seller, Shopify is the ideal ecommerce option. Its fast-loading site and mobile-friendly Shopify print on demand app offer many unique, customizable, high-quality items that can't be beaten. Boost your sales today with Shopify & Gelato to meet all your print on demand business needs.
