Things to consider: domain charges, product listing fees, monthly charges, etc. After you have a decent idea about how each option works, make your final decision and start uploading your brand.

Helpful Tips

A few things that might slip your mind. When you’re ready to pick your shirts, make sure you sample them before ordering. Remember this is your brand, you don’t want to start production without ensuring all aspects are exactly the way you want. Order some sample shirts and test them out.

You also might want to consider mock ups. Basically, photos of models with blanks on. You are able to simply upload your design and place it anywhere on the blank. This way you can show your clothing brand without having to hire a photographer or models.

Consider money gaining options such as crowdfunding websites. These sites give you the opportunity to start fundraisers and raise funds without the commitment of having an investor or partner.  

Last but not least, don’t be discouraged if your clothing brand doesn’t take off right away. Nothing good comes easy. An online clothing brand makes a great side business, or full-time job. Try different things, see what works and what doesn’t. The more time you invest in things like design, awareness and customer service. The more successful your business will become.
