  • Google Checkout & PayPal Only handles the payment part Complicated shipping setup Amazon Fulfillment Handles both shipping and order capture Advantage of product marketing on Amazon.com But for clothing must have UPCs and be approved (still no word on that)

  • Great shipping and fulfillment process Just one day of setup start to finish Received payments, picked, packed and shipped 91 t-shirt orders in 2 days including international orders Great feedback from our members about how simple the e-commerce store was to use Total monthly cost of $148 (plus shipping and transaction fees) On 200 shirts we're looking at no more than $2 overhead per shirt to be on the platform excluding labor to pick, pack and ship orders
