Looking for Merchify/Printful type Dropshippers

Hello, 

Are there any applications out there or connections that can be used on a shopify domain for an apparel dropshipper site like Merchify or Printful, but in Canada?

The reason I'M asking for Canada specifically is because if a Canadian orders from one of those two dropshippers, they need to pay almost 50% more in custom fees, and a tee shirt will end up costing 40-50$, which is insane. 

I've been looking at creating a custom niche apparel site but would like to use a quality apparel dropshipper that can work in the US and in Canada, and won't have hidden fees like that. 

Anyone know of any, or suggest something else?

Hey Mazza! I was wondering the same thing for quite some time and finally (FINALLY!) found the answer. 

It's Printify. 

Yes, they are a US company but they don't actually print anything (think of them as a middleman). Instead, they partner with print providers in Canada, US and UK who print and ship your products.

Currently, they only have 1 print provider in Canada (Canvus Print Lab based in Vancouver). They don't have the most selection (only 7 products) but for me, it was worth it. 

Here's what they have:

  • T-Shirts
    • Men's Premium Fit Crew T-Shirt (Next Level 3600)
    • Heavy Cotton T-Shirt (Gildan 5000)
    • Ultra Cotton T-Shirt (Gildan 2000)
    • Youth T-Shirt (Gildan 5000B)
  • Tanks
    • Women's The Ideal Racerback Tank (Next Level 1533)
  • Crewnecks
    • Adult Crewneck Sweatshirt (Gildan 18000)
  • Hoodies
    • Unisex Heavy Blend Hooded Sweatshirt (Gildan 18500)

Like I said, not the most selection and when I moved to them I had to cut out a bunch of other products like Embroidered Hats and Toques, Men's Tanks, etc. But as a Canadian company, it just didn't feel right having my customers pay shipping and then Duty & Custom fees. It's just a bad customer experience. 

Hope this helps!

Matthew,

Is it confusing with them as the middle man? It seems like it will be too many people to have to coordinate with. Or do they just put you in touch with a company and back away?
