How do I monetize my travels?
I use Printful for the print shop on my website. They print, package, and ship products on your behalf. It's awesome! Printful has integration with many other store types. They operate in the United States, Mexico, Europe/Lativa, and soon Australia which means faster delivery times for your customers.
I also display Native Shopping Ads as an Amazon Affiliate and Skimlinks for other retailers. Skimlinks supports a lot of websites and can be a nice extra income stream for your blog or website.
I recommend to always check and compare the prices of Mavic 2 kits. At this point in time it costs less money to buy the kit separately.
