What is the difference between POD services and POD marketplaces?
Print on Demand services are those that provide the back-end operation of receiving, printing, packing and shipping orders to customers. Whereas, Print on Demand marketplaces are those that also provide the front-end platform or storefront to sellers where all the categories, products and designs are hosted on the POD platform itself.
