Let’s say your customer orders a print design on any product such as dresses, shirts, mugs, posters etc. The order immediately goes to Printful for making, printing and shipping directly to the customer under your brand name. In other words, it saves you from the ‘hassles’ of selling high quality print-on-demand products, and leaves you to focus more on sales and marketing.
To integrate Printful, click on ‘Get App’ button from the Shopify App Store and create a Printful account. Once done, choose and sync the existing or new products along with their printing details to your Printful account and setup the billing.

Not all customers who add items to their carts buy them immediately (for several reasons), and end up losing the cart content, when they logout.
Persistent Cart syncs the shopping carts with accounts in real time. It ‘saves’ all unpurchased item information and clears the cart for privacy purposes whenever the customer logs out, and reloads it back when they login again (even from a different device), leading to customer satisfaction and retention.
You can optimize its performance through notifications, product thumbnails, cross sellings or subtotals in order to boost your sales.
Persistence cart is a backend program and requires no separate installation or setup. You just need to enable it from the admin panel and configure it according to your requirement.
