Print-on-demand or POD is a type of service that offers merchandise like t-shirts and coffee mugs with custom prints. Artists upload designs to these marketplaces and the company handles printing, shipping, customer service, and everything else involved. It’s a common way to make semi-passive income on the internet.
I’m in the POD business as well and wanted to share something I found super interesting. A new website just started called PODlify, a free POD automation tool. There are a few businesses online that currently offer this service, but PODlify is the first to offer it for free. I found out about them while browsing Reddit.
The reason this is extremely helpful is that they allow you to upload to multiple POD websites from one interface, saving you tons of time and increasing your profit. You can check out their website here. This is a quote from their homepage:
PODlify automates the upload and management of your designs across Redbubble, Society6, TeeSpring, TeePublic, Threadless, Spreadshirt, DesignByHumans and many other marketplaces.
I haven’t started using them yet, but I’m definitely excited about this and plan on trying them out soon. My only concern is security, so my plan is to wait for others to try them first. After they build up somewhat of a reputation, I will be much more comfortable using their website.
[Update, October 2023] I've been using PODlify for a while now. It's currently one of the best POD automation tools available. Check out my new PODlify review to learn more. Use my special discount code "ChillBill" at checkout to receive a 20% discount for the first 12 months of any pricing tier!
