Automated Fulfillment for Your Nonprofit eCommerce Store

Automated Fulfillment for Your Nonprofit eCommerce Store & Sales Fundraiser

No time to package and ship products? This is often the downfall of nonprofit sales fundraisers. After all, your nonprofit is not an apparel company, right? While an online store can raise money for your organization and help you spread the word, it shouldn’t take away valuable internal resources from your mission. No problem!

Printful and Printify provide on-demand printing and automated fulfillment (or dropshipping) for our online stores. This means that these companies produce your custom-designed items only after they are ordered online. No need for guesswork or printing up extras that you can’t sell. Design the items and print them only once they have been ordered on your eCommerce store. Printful or Printify will even ship your items directly to your nonprofit constituents and charge your organization the nonprofit rate. Your organization sets your product rate above this, to ensure that you always make a profit.

DoJiggy Pro Stores are integrated with Printful and Printify to make your job easy. Ask us if you are interested in automated fulfillment for your nonprofit eCommerce store.
