What Is TikTok Shop?

TikTok Shop is changing the face of social and eCommerce, and is expected to hit $20 billion in sales by the end of 2023 – which means merchants have the opportunity to list and sell their custom print-on-demand products directly to the vast and global TikTok audience. Connecting your Printify store to TikTok Shop provides you with global brand reach and an effortless shopping experience within the app.

Disclaimer. For now, the TikTok Shop x Printify integration is only available for merchants located and shipping within the US. But stay tuned – we’re working on expanding this integration to other countries and regions.

Why Sell on TikTok Shop?

Massive Audience

TikTok’s user base is expanding even as we speak, with 117 million people browsing content and exploring goods on the platform in the United States alone.

Seamless Shopping

TikTok Shop users can explore, browse, and buy your custom products directly from the TikTok app.

Free Analytics

The data dashboards provide insights and analytics on your transactions, store performance, customer review, and overall traffic.

If those facts don’t convince you to try this new integration, maybe these stats will.

  • When it comes to consumers, 36% of Gen Z and 22% of Millennials want to learn about products through TikTok videos.
  • Half (50%) of TikTok users have bought something directly from TikTok Live.
  • TikTok consumers are twice as likely to recommend a product they’ve purchased than users on other platforms.
  • 2 out of 3 TikTok users are likely to purchase something while browsing the platform.
  • 55% of users browse TikTok to find new products and trends.

Explore the Many Ways to Sell on TikTok Shop

You can showcase, promote, and sell your custom products directly on TikTok Shop in multiple ways. Create a compelling store page, interact with your audience, and skyrocket sales within the platform via TikTok Shop.

Shoppable Video

Turn each discovery into a purchase by posting shoppable in-feed videos – allowing TikTok Shop users to purchase your custom products directly from your content via the basket icon and product link.

Shoppable videos grab the attention of users and immediately inspire them to buy the product advertised. These videos are a way for you to bring your products to the consumers without them having to look for deals themselves. The sales come to them instead.

Product Showcase

Create an inspiring, trustworthy-looking store account and explore the Product Showcase tab on your TikTok Shop profile to set up your in-app shop. All the products from your TikTok Shop will be automatically listed on the Showcase tab for active TikTok users to see and interact with.

Live Shopping

What better way to sell than livestreaming your custom products and offering a chance to purchase them right then and there immediately? Viewers can tap on pinned products during your live presentations or interactions and purchase them without ever leaving the app.

All of the sales techniques mentioned above will lead your customers to your TikTok Shop page, which you can set up and bedazzle however you like. While on it, TikTok users can browse all the products and categories and filter them by relevance, newest additions, or best-selling status.

How to Set up a TikTok Shop Using TikTok Seller Center

Register and Complete the Steps on the TikTok Shop Seller Center

There are a couple of steps to starting your eCommerce journey with TikTok Shop.

Create a TikTok Shop Account

First, you need a regular TikTok account. But – in case you already have a private account – consider creating a separate one for business needs and your TikTok Shop since you plan on using it for selling products.

Next, you need to visit the TikTok Seller Center and register your account for TikTok Shop with a phone number and business email. 

Since TikTok Shop is an entirely separate feature, even a seasoned TikToker or an old account must register for it the same way.

Create a Shop

Kickstart your business on TikTok by filling out your business name, country, address, and contact information. Since you’re selling with POD, you won’t need to worry about logistics, but you still need to provide the required business information. 

Once that’s done, click Start Your Business.

Submit the Documents to Verify Your Identity

The next step is pure technicalities to verify your identity and eligibility. You’ll need to upload documents providing payment and tax information, set your business type, and submit the application for approval.

Note. Your application will be reviewed within 1-2 days.

Connect Your Bank Account

Once your business is approved, you can set up further details, add products, and start selling. Link a bank account that can be used for payouts and handling returns, and submit the details to finalize the creation of your TikTok Shop.

Set Up Your Store Page

Unleash your creativity to create an inviting sales-encouraging store page TikTok users will adore. Use the TikTok Shop Seller Center Dashboard to add product listings, navigate tabs, and create one-of-a-kind offers for your brand-new audience.
