Are you confused about the difference between Printivo Marketplace and Printivo Merch store?

Don’t worry; you’re not alone.

I understand the confusion, which is why I have created this post to help you understand the differences between these two platforms.

 Printivo Marketplace and Merch Store

Here are some key differences between the Printivo Marketplace and Printivo Merch store :

1. Definition:

the Printivo Marketplace and Printivo Merch store are two distinct platforms that serve different purposes. While the Marketplace is designed for designers to create product templates and earn royalties, the Merch store is designed for individuals, companies, and communities to sell merchandise items for a specific cause or purpose/event.

2. Location:

the URL to sign up for the marketplace is, while that of the merch store is

3. Making Money:

The Printivo Marketplace was designed to allow designers to create product templates for Printivo customers to use, and when a customer uses a designer’s template, the designer gets 15% of the value of such a product in the form of royalty. In contrast, Printivo Merch store owners don’t get royalties. Instead, they get the amount of profit they’ve set on each product.

4. Product visibility:

all Printivo customers can see products in the Printivo Marketplace, but merch store products are only visible to the audience the store owner wants. This means that merch store owners have control over who sees their products, whereas Printivo Marketplace products are visible to a wider audience.

5. Product restrictions:

marketplace owners must submit template designs for approval before they can be shown on the Printivo website. In contrast, Merch store owners have 100% freedom to put any design on their product. This means that Marketplace owners have to follow specific design guidelines and restrictions, while Merch store owners have more creative freedom.

6. Target audience:

the Printivo Marketplace is best suited for designers who are looking to make extra income. On the other hand, the Printivo Merch store is largely for communities, companies, influencers, and individuals who simply want to sell Merch items for a specific cause or purpose/event.
