Learn more about selling ink

  • Begin by creating an ink-credible virtual store on Shopify. Shopify's custom themes, templates, and other user-friendly web-building tools make it easy, so your intuition, discretion, creativity, and of course, a mobile phone or PC are everything you need. You can sell all types of ink and offer ink refueling services via your virtual Shopify store. And thanks to Shopify's mobile Commerce shopping cart, your customers will be able to access and order ink from your store via their smartphones.

  • There are several ways to sell ink online, like through a marketplace or your online store, but a Shopify store offers the best value while letting you stay in control of your business. You can sell used and new printing ink from major ink brands and even add toner cartridges to the mix. The Shopify mobile app takes your online ink-selling venture to another level, as it lets you attend to multiple customers at a go, take inventory seamlessly, and track sales.

  • Yes. Ink definitely falls into the category of things that can be listed for sale on Shopify. You can sell ink out of any warehouse or brick-and-mortar shop to customers from your virtual Shopify store, receive payments via over 100 payment gateways, and deliver to anywhere on the globe at the best rates. You get to drive more sales and traffic to your website/store by embedding Shopify-generated QR codes in articles and other web content or by launching Google Ad campaigns. Shopify's Sale and Discount Manager app helps in organizing discounts for bulk buyers and loyal customers — something you'll find crucial to cement customer loyalty and drive even more ink sales.

  • The price of ink depends on the type, the quantity and if you're selling it as individual items or in bulk. Consider the cost of purchasing the ink, overhead, shipping and delivery, and check out Shopify's profit margin calculator for some pricing examples.
