GETTING STARTED

 

Yes! You can design, create and sell your merch online without the production hassle, managing inventory, dealing with dispatch riders and logistics companies because we do all that for you. It saves you time, money & (we love this part) its great for planet because there is less “deadstock” out there and you only print the items your customers, fans & followers want.

HOW IT WORKS

At MerchHub we run a simple print-on-demand service, Print-on-demand (or POD) is an order fulfilment method where items are printed as soon as an order is made, with no minimum orders.

The term POD is often combined with drop shipping to describe a service where items are printed to order and shipped directly from the manufacturer (us) to the buyer (your customer) on behalf of the customer selling the goods (you).

Now you get the gist, here’s a step by step walkthrough on how to set up your store and get selling within minutes.

STEP 1

Sign Up to create a MerchHub Store account. (Your account would be verified and approved within 3 hours)

STEP 2

Once your account is verified you’ll automatically be subscribed to the starter plan to get you going right away. Choose a paid plan to unlock another world of creativity and the perks that come with it. (See here for details on our plans)

STEP 3

Start creating by first picking the blank garment you want your design on. **Kindly note: Not all blanks or colours of blanks are available to the starter plan. (See here for details on what blank garments are available to your plan).

STEP 4

Launch the design upload tool, upload and position your high-quality 300dpi print-ready artwork, there are additional customisation tools such as text, when you are done, the price displayed on the left of the add to cart button is your production cost, save the design, add to cart and checkout. (See here for more details on the design upload tool and submitting your designs.)

 

 

STEP 5

Use the profit calculator to determine a reasonable margin, set the sale price and calculate your potential earnings. ** Kindly note: Your selected plan would affect your earnings due to difference in seller fees. (See here for more details on the profit calculator)

 

STEP 6

Upload your product to your store through the Merchant Dashboard. You will need to have two things to upload your product

  • An approved account with a plan to access your backend dashboard.
  • An 800px x 600px product image, this could be a mock-up generated on a tool such as Smart Mockups, any of the adobe creative suite tools or alternatively a product shot image with a model in the actual merch.
