The most direct way to understand the processes at play is to make an actual order for yourself and go through the whole thing as both a customer and a business.

 

For how a third party service operates you need to contact their support.

 

Even if not using a print on demand, shopify still would not be the ones shipping your products unless you were specifically setup to use their separate shopify-fulfillment network.

 

As for "include shipping costs" that can mean multiple things.

But if you mean what's collected at checkout from the customer the shipping costs needs to be collected at somepoint and there's not a great reason for the customer to have a separate process where they would pay your dropping shipping provider directly.

Hi @myhappygifts,
So to confirm, yes printful does the printing and fulfilment of your products when an order is placed. Also the shipping rates from printful app are automatically synced to your shopify store, under Printful shipping profile.

I hope I made it clear. let me know if you want any more info.

When designing a product on Printful and adding details or adjusting pricing, you will be prompted to choose whether or not to include shipping, or provide free shipping. At this stage, you can decide to set your profit margin to ensure you are getting a good once and the decision to make it free or include shipping is totally depends on you, your designs/product line/marketing.

Hi there!

Are you saying with third party fulfillment companies, like Printful / Pixels / Printify -- you don't need to use activate "third-party carrier-calculated shipping?" There is a way to set up the shipping amounts to be integrated and sync through Shopify?

Are you available for a consultation, I am in need of services for this as I cannot figure it out. I use Pixels, and they are saying i need carrier calculated shipping -- which I can't do unless I upgrade my plan. And I am not willing to pay $948 a year just for the purpose of calculating shipping costs. That just seems...wild... 🙂 

Thank you! If there is anything you can do to help, I would love to hire you!
