Thanks for hunting us @kwdinc!

Hey Hunters, I'm one of the co-founders here at Bonfire. We've got a very exciting roadmap planned for the product and are happy to finally be out of beta and open for business.

I'll be hanging out on PH all day (like usual) - happy to answer any questions and would love your feedback.

1. What makes Bonfire different from TeeSpring, Printful and other competitors?
2. TeeSpring has a Shopify Plugin and Printful made it easy to integrate automatically with several e-Commerce platforms via ShipStation. Are there plans to create Bonfire plugins for easy and automatic integration with stores?

@patrick_udeh Great questions!

1. On the platform side, we’re the only apparel-selling platform that allows sellers to choose whether to sell shirts for profit or as a fundraiser. (Selling shirts as a fundraiser allows them to accept donations, among other features.) We’ve also invested heavily in graphic design services and US-based customer service to help our sellers be more successful.

On the merch side, we’re the only such platform that uses only premium-quality t-shirts. This is because our sellers tend to be deeply connected to their communities, and cheap-quality shirts leave everyone unhappy.


2. We’ve definitely got our eyes on some future integrations with 3rd party platforms. I can’t share a ton at the moment but stay tuned.

@kevinpenney Oh, that's great. I especially like that designers/sellers can accept donations. Besides Paypal, I would recommend including Payoneer as a means of making profit payments to sellers, especially those who are based outside the US.

@patrick_udeh Thanks for the suggestion! Definitely looking to explore multiple payout options in the near future.

@kevinpenney @patrick_udeh The customer success side and graphic help can't be ignored. I bet a lot of items submitted to sites in the space look like garbage, won't be funded, and ultimately fail to create revenue for the business.

I used to work liaising between printers and people/brands/charities needing apparel. Just making sure they weren't submitting designs that would look bad once printed and I was able to make a lot doing that :) It's a good value add for both the customers and the bottom line in this case.

@thatmattgardner You nailed it - most people have no idea how much pre-production work/guidance goes into custom apparel. Thanks for the support!
