Printmotor offers a platform where you can start your own store and sell printed goods to anyone anywhere in the world. Here is the whole story in a few bullet points: You open your store and create beautiful products, Printmotor takes care of everything else - manufacturing the products, payments from the customers, shipments to the customers and also customer service. With a Printmotor Store you can sell printed goods. All of the goods are manufactured on-demand - when there is an order, Printmotor manufactures the product and sends it to the customer. There is no inventory, so you do not need to invest money in inventory and handle any of the goods yourself. You determine the prices for all the products you sell. Everything above the Printmotor production price is your profit. Printmotor pays you your share of the sales once a month.
Printmotor uses Stripe (www.stripe.com) for all payments from the customers. Stripe currently offer payments by Visa, MasterCard and American Express credit, debit and electron cards.
Printmotor uses PayPal for all payments to partners outside Finland. In your Account settings you can enter your PayPal account details. For Finnish citizens we use Ukko.fi service. For companies, invoicing is also possible. Printmotor makes the payment for sales during the following calendar month. For example, the payment for January sales will be made during February.
You can currently present your prices in Euros (EUR) or Swedish Kronas (SEK). We will add other currencies in the future.
In most countries, income from Printmotor is taxable income and you need to state it in your tax statement. Printmotor does not send statements to any local tax authorities, you are responsible for taking care of these. However, for Finnish citizens Printmotor uses Ukko.fi service for payouts. Ukko.fi will handle all the mandatory taxes, costs etc. on your behalf and all you need to do is register to their service and provide them your income-tax card.
Printmotor operates from EU so you do not need to pay duties if you order from within the EU. Depending on the value of your purchase you might be responsible for duties or other fees if you are located outside the EU.
