Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost? Setting up an online store is FREE. The only cost comes at the end of a sale where we retain the delta between what our cost to produce and your retail sale. For example, if we tell you that it will cost $8.00 to produce your T-Shirt and you list it for sale for $15.00 we will retain $8.00 and you will retain $7.00 less the cost of credit card processing fees. Please contact one of our sales consultants to explain this in more depth (908) 806-8337.
Who sets the sale price of items? You do! We will give you various quotes based on an estimated final order quantity. Based on those quotes, you will set the resale pricing to be listed in your store.
