Printful

Provides information on the Printful integration to ShipStation and links for relevant resources.

Printful is a print-on-demand drop shipper that prints, ships, and warehouses print products for online retailers. Everything is fulfilled on-demand, so you don’t have to worry about managing inventory.

The Printful integration with ShipStation allows Printful to retrieve orders from specific stores you've connected to ShipStation. Then they’ll print and ship those orders straight to your customer, under your brand.

ShipStation allows Printful to retrieve orders from selling channels Printful doesn't integrate with directly, like:

  • Squarespace

  • Etsy

  • eBay

  • Amazon

  • PrestaShop

This short video explains the integration process.
