Peecho takes a cut of every sale realized by its customers, which include companies like Hyves, KODAK, Efteling and Issuu.
The company explains that it executes production orders on the merchant’s behalf, but collects the payments from consumers. Hence, they make an average margin of 20 percent on every order, although they point out this depends on the type of product.
