Entrepreneurs today have a number of print-on-demand services to choose from, each of which will call itself the best. But which one is actually telling the truth? We’re obviously a bit biased, but we’re confident that Podify’s unique offerings place it head and shoulders about competitors like Printful and Printify.
But we don’t expect you to just take our word for that. Let’s take a closer look at some of the main factors that an entrepreneur should consider when picking a POD app. With hard data, we’ll show you why Podify is the best way to start taking advantage of the growing POD dropshipping marketplace. Keep reading to learn more.
All three of Printful, Podify, and Printify offer entrepreneurs a wide range of customizable products to choose from. You can use any of the services to customize things like t-shirts and coffee mugs.
But if you’re looking for products that are a bit off the beaten path, then Podify is really your only option. It’s the only POD app of the three that offers entrepreneurs the opportunity to customize unique items, like:
- Yoga mats
- Jigsaw puzzles
- Reversible sequins
- And more
Costs are an essential component to consider before choosing the POD app that’s right for your company. You need to verify that the customized products they enable you to dropship will actually make you money. So let’s look at how these three services compare when it comes to price.
The price that each of these services charges for basic items like t-shirts is very similar. But the exact dollar amount that you pay will depend on a few factors. For example, Printify sells monthly recurring memberships. You could pay less per item that you buy from them if you pay the company a monthly fee. This may or may not be worth the cost-savings for your business.
But when it comes to average price across all products, Podify comes out on top again. Our prices are up to 25% lower than both Printful and Podify. That means more money in your pocket on every POD-created item you sell.
Ease of Use
The last thing that you want to have to do is waste your valuable time trying to figure out how to work the POD app that you decide to use. That’s why ease of use is another important factor that you should be considering when you make this comparison.
Thankfully, you won’t have much trouble with using any of the three POD apps in this comparison. Printful, Podify, and Printify all include a number of helpful features that make using them a breeze.
In order to get the most out of the POD app that you decide to use, you need to be able to get the most out of the product customization process. That’s why Podify made this a priority while designing its Dynamic Printing App for Shopify.
For example, Podify is the only POD app that lets customers fully design more than 100 custom products from start to finish. We give you more control over what your products end up looking like than our competitors do. That’s because we understand that you know your customers best. And it’s our mission to ensure that you’re able to meet their needs with our highly-customizable products.
At the same time, you won’t feel overwhelmed with all of the choices that are available to you. Our customization tool is very straightforward, enabling you to create the products that you want to sell within just a few minutes.
To be fair, Printful and Printify also make it pretty easy to create customized products online. But their customization options are limited compared to what Podify offers. Check out our demo store to get a closer look at what sets our customization process apart from the competition.
All three of these apps offer some helpful customer support options for customers to utilize. For example, Printify has an online help center with articles to help with integrations, troubleshooting, payments, and more.
Printful, on the other hand, has a blog that it regularly updates with useful information for running a successful print-on-demand business. Both of these companies also offer several different ways to contact a human for customer support as well.
But Podify still manages to stand out with its impressive customer service and support offerings. One of the best examples of this is our 24-hour response time guarantee. It’s our pledge to you that you will never have to wait for more than a day to get the response that you need to move forward with your POD service.
The Bottom Line: Which POD App is Best?
Based on all of the information references above, we can’t help but conclude that Podify comes out on top. Our Shopify App is the only application that offers something we’re calling cPOD (customer Print on Demand).
With it, you can allow your customers to create their own products and sell them in your store like you would sell anything else. This unlocks a completely new dimension for your POD store that you won’t be able to access if you go with either Printful or Printify.
On top of that, we offer best-in-class customer service, lower prices, and a powerful customization process. All of this is packed together in an app that can be seamlessly integrated into your existing Shopify account.
