I recently opened my Shopify shop selling custom printed tees. I currently sell to US, Canada, UK, and Australia only. I use Print-on-Demand companies to fulfill my orders.
However, since I am a Filipino, I am looking to expand and sell to Filipinos as well. I can't sell to Philippines with the PODs I am using because it will be too much ($19.95 for shirt + $10 shipping = $29.95 ~Php1,300).
I am not sure if there is any print-on-demand service provider from the Philippines. But right now, I am thinking about starting my own tshirt print shop to fulfill Philippine orders.
Are there any Filipinos here who would be interested to partner with me and sell and/or promote tshirts, and I'll be the one to print and ship to your customers? This could be a win-win solution for us. I will only charge Php250/shirt + Php95 shipping. Any amount in excess of these are yours to keep. You will not need to stock or manage inventory. I have cool designs purchased online, and they're pretty expensive, so I am confident your friends, audience, customers, would like them.
I will only use heat press transfers for this as a start. If it goes well, I consider buying DTG printer.
Feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. I would also appreciate if there are foreigners willing to give suggestions/feedback about my plan.
I have other products aside from tshirts that are customizable. I do satin gift pouches, loot bags, reusable face masks which are available for reselling.
Thanks for reading and hoping to meet new partners!
Apologies for replying as this isn't totally related to your concern. I see that you are a very successful Shopify seller.
I just started putting up my Shopify store, I'm based in the Philippines and I don't know what payment gateway is best if I sell my products to UK, US, Canada and Australia.
I did some research and it seems like most of the Filipinos are having problems with payment gateways.
Also, did you use your Philippines address to set up your shopify account?
I hope you could help. Thanks a lot!
