Printful to offer warehousing and fulfilment service for online retailers


US-based firm Printful has unveiled its warehousing and fulfilment service that enables customers to store their inventory.

Aimed at servicing online businesses looking for a third party to handle their inventory, the solution requires clients to send their goods to Printful.

The company performs merchants’ operational tasks by providing print-on-demand and warehousing services, as well as solutions to automate order fulfilment, create designs and publish new products.

“Customers can now use Printful regardless of whether they sell print products, it lowers the barrier to entry for a wider range of e-commerce businesses.”

Printful CEO Davis Siksnans said: "Warehousing and fulfilment are our biggest step toward our goal of offering more varied e-commerce services.

“Customers can now use Printful regardless of whether they sell print products, it lowers the barrier to entry for a wider range of e-commerce businesses.”

Founded in 2013, the company integrates with e-commerce platforms such as Shopify.

Shopify shipping and fulfilment global head Maia Benson said: "Entrepreneurs and small businesses win when warehousing businesses are built for them and their unique needs, simple on-boarding; simple and predictable pricing; guaranteed service levels and always-on customer service.

“At Shopify, our partner ecosystem helps solve challenges for our merchants, and this shift is an exciting development that will ultimately benefit our community."

Printful launched the beta phase for its warehousing and fulfilment in May.

The service is now available to its customers, who can have access to warehousing options at the company’s facilities in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Riga, Latvia.
