Charlotte, North Carolina – Printful took another step toward the globalization of its print-on-demand platform with the release of a French version of its website.
This announcement coincides with the opening of Printful’s newest fulfillment center in Barcelona, Spain, which will provide faster shipping throughout Western Europe (about three business days to most urban areas). Printful also has fulfillment centers in Riga Latvia, both US coasts, and Mexico.
The launch of the new French site is a step toward building a stronger presence in France and other French-speaking countries, including Canada, where Printful also plans to open a fulfillment center. The language is spoken by more than 280 million people worldwide, and is ranked the sixth most spoken in the world.
Ecommerce in France is also large and growing. Clothing and footwear is France’s most popular ecommerce category, with 47 percent of French residents reporting they’ve purchased clothes or shoes online in the past year. It’s Printful’s third-largest market in Europe in terms of Printful product volume sold. Between April 2019 and 2020, Printful saw a 59% increase in the number of active merchants selling on its platform and a 48% growth in revenue from products sold to France from Q1 2019 and Q1 2020.
Ranked the third-largest economy in Europe and sixth in the world, France is becoming a popular market for cross-border trade. It boasts 36 million online shoppers with an ecommerce market worth €57 billion.
France is among the top six countries using Printful already, and with a localized website the number of Printful users is expected to grow.Advertisement
