OrbitKit Fulfillment, OrbitKit Fulfillment Alternatives, and OrbitKit Plus are categories of platforms that OrbitKit supports.
OrbitKit Fulfillment is our integrated print network which fulfills orders from marketplaces that do not print for you. Currently this is Shopify and Etsy, although we are working on others. There is no monthly charge to publish designs to Shopify or Etsy, nor is there any limit to limit to how fast you can publish designs (other than Shopify's or Etsy's API rate limits). You pay only for orders that are sold and shipped.
If you publish to Shopify or Etsy venues with OrbitKit, you are using OrbitKit Fulfillment. You do not need a subscription to OrbitKit Plus to publish to Shopify.
OrbitKit Fulfillment Alternatives are Printful and Printify. These venues work like OrbitKit Plus venues, but do not require a subscription. There are no rate limits to publishing (other than what Printful or Printify or the end marketplace apply).
OrbitKit Plus is a subscription service that publishes your designs on traditional print-on-demand marketplaces like Redbubble and Spreadshirt. These marketplaces sell and print your designs on a variety of products; OrbitKit Plus only publishes the listings and keeps them in sync with your library.
We charge a monthly fee that varies by how fast you wish to publish your designs. OrbitKit Plus is an optional service.
The Starter plan publishes 5 designs per day per platform for $29/mo.
The Pro plan is unlimited for $59/mo.
Note that the platforms themselves impose a limit on how many listings you can publish per day - usually a max of 30-50. When OrbitKit hits this limit, it pauses and tries again the next day.
Again, publishing to Printful and Printify is unlimited and free, and OrbitKit Fulfillment doesn't require a subscription.
