I have been using this plugin on 2 websites without any issues for 6 months. First website is just Printful products, second is a mixture of Printful, stocked products and digital offerings. I think it works great. Like anything there is a slight learning curve and there are some functions I would like to see; like being able to adjust pricing after import and better like item grouping. Still a 5 Star app, it does almost all of the heavy lifting.

First of all, I've only had great experience with customer service, so thank you so much! About the plugin itself: it works pretty well, except for a couple of things. - If there are lots of images created through Printful, the plugin will create errors when adding new products to WP. Printful will say that the product couldn't synch due to an unknown error, and the product will be listed as "private," but everything (product description, price, images, etc) does indeed transfer over to WP. After spending so much time trying to figure out what was going on, I found the solution: I've had to choose JPG product images rather than PNG for products with multiple variations, and then manually create a PNG mockup for the main product image and upload it, which is rather tedious. (This issue had nothing to do with my PHP memory limit, upload limit etc.) - There are lots of steps involved when creating variations of a product. Wish it were more seamless.

As a WooCommerce developer myself, I'm very disappointed with this integration. I'm glad I checked the support forums so I only wasted a day trying to figure out why this integration wasn't working. I cannot recommend this plugin and by extension Printful if you are using WooCommerce. Due to a terrible design decision on their developers part this integration just isn't scalable. They do not use global product attributes which means you cannot use any plugins related to attributes. This includes swatch plugins, search plugins or most of the features you need to run a successful online store. You cannot provide an easy way for your customers to filter your catalogue. Their suggestion is to use tags which is not a workable solution. I shouldn't have to tag colours and sizes when you already have all the attributes created. I would suggest that if you want to be able to filter your products and provide a seamless eCommerce experience for your customers, you look elsewhere. It's extremely disappointing because I wanted to integrate Printful with our product also. cheers, Jamie Founder, Lead Developer WC Vendors Marketplace.

This is an excellent plugin and works absolutely fine. Printful has been an awesome addition to offer print-on-demand products on my site as a complement to my other services. I've never had any problems and the setup was very easy.

The plugin seemed to integrate with WooCommerce nicely at first. Then later on all the t-shirt variants were unsynced. Couldn't delete the variants. Just had problems. Started a fresh store on another website, could never get the Printful plugin to sync with the Printful website (disabled all plugins except those 2, still no sync.). Followed the video instructions to the letter. Went through chat support and then through email with an intermediary support person who replied on behalf of the Printful Developers. Not a great way to get support. Discouraging process. May try a fresh store one more time and see if I can get it to sync. If not, then I’ll find another service.

I was able to create some nice products on Printful but the integration is horrible -- response from chat or email are painful. Chats ended prematurely. I can't seem to delete an item from Printful. I can't sync my products. I was instructed to remove all other plugins on my wordpress to continue. My response was that there must be a better way to troubleshoot - I'm not about to break my website to test out Printful. I hope they figure it out soon.
