SPOD, or Spreadshirt Print on Demand, is a Shopify application that enables merchants to print their custom designs on several different types of products. Although it plays the role of a subsidiary enterprise for Shopify, SPOD has garnered a 2.6 average rating from a limited number of reviews, suggesting a mixed experience among users.
Operating under the umbrella of Spreadshirt Print on Demand, SPOD is based in Germany and offers an array of printing options, including Digital Direct, Thermal Sublimation, Digital Transfer/Laser Transfer, and Special Flex. The accessibility of various products is based on the location of factories, where European and American factories provide items like T-Shirts, Tank Tops, Mugs, Bags, Posters, Stickers an so on.
SPOD is distinguished by the fact that it does not charge anything to use and no cost or features are paid for. Being a Shopify app, SPOD is available to merchants with working shopify accounts but it can also integrate to multiple platforms. While SPOD gives certain opportunities, it has been criticized by its users on Trustpilot. Some users complained about orders never being produced, which suggests possible fulfillment delays. Secondly, there are examples of SPOD removing users’ products from their shops losing the merchant the ability to sell such items.
In summary, although SPOD provides various types of printing and products, their average rating of 2.6 by a few reviewers indicates issues raised by the users themselves. Issues with the removal of products, order production, and website errors point to possible issues of platform functionality and customer experience. Resolving these concerns can help in enhancing the ratings on a whole and increasing users satisfaction.
