How do you get paid BEFORE purchasing products?

I have a clothing brand that I mostly promote through instagram. I use a print-on-demand site to make/ship clothes, but a big issue I have is that I need to pay for the item before the payment is sent to my Shopify/Facebook wallet. Facebook requires the item to be shipped before paying out. Is there any method I could use to get around that? I’d like to be able to pay for the item with the customers money, instead of my own.

Hey @STRICTLYFAMILY,

 

It depends on the specific print-on-demand service you are using. Some may require you to pay for the products upfront and then reimburse you once the customer has paid, while others may offer different payment methods such as monthly or bi-weekly payouts.

 

The majority of print-on-demand services require you to pay for the products upfront, while there are few who offer a delayed payment option, this may be suitable for you:

  • Printful - Printful offers a billing system where you can choose to be invoiced for orders once they are shipped, rather than paying for them upfront.
  • Gooten - Gooten offers a Net 15 payment option, which means that you have 15 days after the order is fulfilled to pay for it.
  • SPOD (Spreadshirt) - SPOD offers a payment method called "Invoice Payment" where you can pay for your orders after they have shipped.
  • Printify - Printify offers a delayed payment option called "Monthly billing" which allows you to receive one invoice per month for all of your orders fulfilled during that time.

It's important to note that each of these services may have specific requirements and fees associated with their delayed payment options, so it's important to review their policies carefully to understand the terms of their payment methods.
