Selling merch has become more important than ever for musicians. In fact, merch sales represent the biggest direct-to-fan revenue stream for Bandzoogle members.
So we’re excited to add another great option to sell merch to your fans with the popular print-on-demand and drop shipping service Printful.
Pro plan members can now set up products at Printful, then connect to your Bandzoogle store to sell custom print-on-demand merch online, hassle-free, directly to your fans from your website.
No upfront costs or inventory to manage
With print-on-demand, you can sell merch to your fans with no upfront costs, and no inventory to manage. As a band just starting out, or perhaps as a musician with too much going on to manage merch fulfillment, Printful is a great solution.
There are no fees or minimum order requirements either. When a fan places an order, Printful then fulfills and ships the merch item for you.
With print on demand production, each merch item is only printed when a fan buys it. You don’t have to order minimum amounts or keep inventory, making it a more sustainable choice as well.
Easy merch creation and fulfillment
With Printful you can create custom printed or embroidered products on-demand, choosing from over 200 items including t-shirts, hoodies, hats, phone cases, and more.
When a fan places an order, Printful then fulfills and ships the order for you. There are no upfront costs or monthly fees, and you only pay Printful when a fan buys an item from your store.
Seamless integration into your website
With this new functionality, Printful integrates seamlessly into your Bandzoogle store alongside your other music and merch. And just like with all music and merch sales, Bandzoogle doesn’t take a commission on your sales.
Once you have your Printful account set up with merch, add the API key to the Printful tab in your Bandzoogle store. This will import your Printful items, allowing you to add any of them as products, directly into your Store.
Products are imported with all of their data from Printful, including pricing and imagery. The default description from Printful is included, along with product availability; these two fields can be edited in your Bandzoogle control panel.
Need to update an item that you’ve already added to your store? Head to Printful, make any changes needed, then sync your Bandzoogle store to update the items.
Checkout, adjustment of the shipping cost, and sending the order to Printful are done automatically from your website, giving your fans a seamless experience.
The Printful integration is another advanced ecommerce option available on the Pro plan, which also includes album pre-orders, sale pricing, discount codes, SoundScan reporting, and more.
