Ok, so you have decided you want to kickoff your Print-on-Demand dropshipping business. And now what? Take a look at these few steps that will help you start gaining your first profit and review how you can establish long-lasting relationships with a vast range of businesses. 

Short guide on how you can start selling with Dropshipping WooCommerce plugin

The process is simple. First you download the plugin in a zip. file,  install it on your WordPress dashboard and activate it. Then, if you want to go try out the demo version of the plugin just to see how it works, go to K2P API – and set a “Demo mode” checkbox activated. Now, if you tested the plugin and want to start selling you’ll need to do few more steps to obtain access to its’ full functionality.

1) First, register as a reseller on the website of our printing partner SaxoPrint is present in several European countries, so choose an instance of the local SaxoPrint from your country.

2) Send us a form with your customer ID you’ve received after registering to SaxoPrint. You can fill in the form right here at the top of the page This is an extended questionnaire that will help us to gather more information about your company and review them in terms of your creditworthiness.

3) We verify your company.

4) If verification goes fine, we will send you API credentials (API key and API secret) necessary for proper plugin configuration. After your plugin is configured it is time to configure the product – you decide about promotions and adding discount vouchers to chosen items. 

Now you finally start selling! 

When your client chooses a product in a specific configuration, he uploads the artwork he wants to add to a printed item and places an order. You receive the order and, at this point, using API, WooCommerce automatically connects with the print house. Therefore, all you need to do is with one click forward the order to SaxoPrint, where it gets printed and shipped under your brand. It’s that easy! 

NOTE: Due to the loan SaxoPrint offers you for a start, you won’t have to pay yourself for the production of items! Instead, you’ll be able to trade with your clients money until the date of invoice payment for SaxoPrint.


Establish your long-lasting relationships


Every business nowadays, from a start-up to an established trading company, uses commercial printing products. Whether it’s for marketing purposes or office supplies, these printed items are vital for proper functioning of the company – yet what is most important to you, is that they are fast-wearing goods.

Why? You ask

Because with every consumed material the demand for purchasing another one is growing. And for you this situation means returning customers! If any company starts buying your products and will be satisfied with their quality or delivery process, it’ll most likely be willing to purchase more and more items from your offer.

Returning customers are in fact a rarity in online businesses. Usually dropshipping companies offers items considered to be one-off shots to which clients never return to. Thereby, having an opportunity to offer a set of goods that are going to attract your clients in a long run is a real value!
