We still use Printful App as print on demand with shopify, right? Because I saw a message about the integration after September 15, 2021. Could anyone clarify about that, please? I am really new to online business, and still working on setting my store.
Thanks you all in advance.
Thanks for reaching out in our Community forums and for asking your question, I’d be happy to help.
I appreciate you bringing this to our attention, although I still see the Printful App available on the Shopify App Store and have not found any alerts from the developers that the integration will be changing anytime soon. Here is an updated guide on Printful's Help Center that covers the current integration process with Shopify. Feel free to share a screenshot or link to the message regarding the integration after September 15, 2021 so that I can take a closer look.
You also mentioned that you are currently operating a print on demand business through Printful and are still setting up your store, that's great to hear! How far along the setup process are you? The General Checklist is a great tool that will ensure that you have your Shopify store all set up and ready for customers to make purchases on. In other words, having a finished product, that includes having your media, shipping and check out all in working order.
I’d love to know more about your business and marketing plans! Have you already established your target audience for your products? Have you decided on which platforms to use to target these customers?

I understand your concerns after seeing the message, but there is no need to worry as you'll still be able to use Printful services with Shopify. Starting from 15th September, the Shopify embed has been disabled. Shopify integration will remain, the only thing that changes is that you won't be able to access your Printful account through Shopify > Apps. All functions after September 15, like product posting, would need to be done through our main website instead:
Hi again, @chanthkhem!
Thank you so much for sharing the message and i'll be happy to help clarify.
From my understanding, the only thing that is changing is the ability to access Printful directly from your Shopify Admin. Rest assured, you will still be able to import and edit products directly from Printful's website as your store is already connected. The changes you make on the Printful site will transfer over to your store automatically. For instance, if you decide to add a custom shirt, you would do so through the website and you would see it under your product section after it has been uploaded. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions and i'd be happy to help.
