Printing Types & Customization Pricing

Customization pricing is generated based on the printing types you selected for the product. Inkybay has multiple ways to set up customization pricing under the printing type.

To manage printing types, colors, and pricing, navigate to “Products >> Printing Types & Pricing” or you can manage printing type on the same page while you are adding/editing your customized products.

Note: If you do not want any extra price for customization over your base product price (from Shopify), just make all the prices as zero (“0”) under the selected printing type for the products. And all the customization prices in our app will be added (additional) over your base product price.

 

Select printing types for custom products
