Create your own products and ship them worldwide with AutoDS
What is Print-on-demand (POD)?
Print-on-demand is a business model where products are manufactured as ordered, eliminating the need for inventory. It allows you to design and sell custom products like apparel, accessories, and homeware without handling production or shipping.
With POD, items are created and shipped to customers only after placing orders.
This model provides flexibility for customization and scalability, making it a popular choice for many online businesses and independent creators looking to bring their designs to market without the hassle of traditional manufacturing and logistics.
