The speaker, who has been a print-on-demand seller for almost 10 years, shares five things they wish they knew before starting print-on-demand on Etsy. These five things include the amount of work required compared to selling on other print-on-demand websites, the constant need to respond to customer messages quickly, the challenging setup process on Etsy, the fees associated with listing on Etsy, and the upfront cost of goods when using a third-party print-on-demand fulfillment service.
