My sale are back but less than usual before new site... I hope that will reach old level...
Another thing what is problem to me on Zazzle is tax... They are taxing all sales not just US based...

Is it because of the discounts? I sold a few postcards this month, which are deeply discounted.

Like the micros, the PODs are now addicted to discounts.  Same thing ruined J.C. Penney - eventually, no one buys anything unless it's "on sale".

Zazzle Was GREAT For The Longest Time....
They Changed Volume Bonus,
And Went To Standard Shops For I-Phones & Tablets...

They DESTROYED A GREAT SITE...

No More HTML, Or Custom Shops..

I Had Over 4 Years Of Linking All Over The Web To My Shops
Which Took me WEEKS & MONTHS To Design....

In One SWOOP They KILLED IT...

I Haven't Seen A Volume Bonus In 6 Months...

I Would EASILY Earn Between 200.00 To 500.00 Per Month,
Now I'm Lucky If I Hit 100.00......

I Heard The Same Stories About CAFE PRESS When
I First Started Making Online Products With Zazzle...

SAD That Zazzle Has Become The Same Way...

Totally Disappointed,
And I Feel Taken Advantage Of...

I Spent YEARS At Zazzle...
Creating, And Diving Traffic To Their Site Through My Shops...

They Are Consumed With Their OWN GREED,
And Have CRAPPED On Everyone That Helped Make Them Rich...

BELOW ARE EXAMPLES OF HOW DEDICATED I WAS...

I'm subscribed to receive marketing to Zazzle, Caf Press, Wordans, Spreadshirt and a few others.  I never actually noticed how much the first two mark up their products.  When I was looking into this I was focussing mainly on t-shirts, but their gallery wraps and posters are higher than my pricing at my prolab. Spreadshirts prices are really more in line with getting a screenprinted t-shirt done locally.

I've noticed that Wordans sends an email about twice a month, Spreadshirt once a month and Caf/Zazzle sometimes 5 times a week.  I'm surprized anyone stays subscribed to both of them - but I think I stay for the entertainment value. If Caf Press puts out 20%off Iphone cases, Zazzle puts the same email out the same day.  They rarely ever tell you what is actually on sale.  It's "Up to 40% on almost everything in the store" but you have to go through making a product and putting it in your cart to see if it is discounted.... then just the white one will be discounted, but the pink one will still be full price.

I also know that Caf Press for one doesn't even make all of their own products, so there is a third party between you and them - or between your buyer and you and them.  For example http://www.rpiprint.com/ do their greeting cards.  When I left Rocketlife I looked into RPI to replace them as a partner, and the were very proud of their relationship with Caf Press.  (They likely print their posters also if they are doing cards, it is usually the same type of press).

Wordans is a Canadian company, and from what I understand is they farm all of the orders out to local private businesses who do work for them.  Their prices are not very competitive and you hear stories about terrible products and others about fabulous products - how does Wordans quality control so many independent contractors?

Spreadshirt on the other hand seems to be a one-business show.  Their prices are not jacked up crazy.  They actually screen print OR digital print.  I ordered t-shirts a couple years ago and received a personal phone call about the artwork.  If I had to trust any of these sites - Spreadshirt would be on the top of my list.

Last month I earned almost 200$, but this month zero sales till now!

New site? Or something else?

Your experience?

They made a comeback to $200 a month for you now?

I had some sales in October, November and December... December was the best month since I started selling products online.

The sales stopped a few days before Christmas.

This January I had 2 sales (the same product sold twice).

Nov/Dec $200 each month, Jan back to $100. Losing the bonus scheme was a big letdown but compared to cafepress they are very generous since you can set your own percentage. I set mine at 14.5% after a lot of trialing.

I put a lot of time and effort into zazzle, and was making bank for a while, but lately it's all died.  Doesn't exactly motivate me to continue... hard enough to keep 5 pots heated at the same time with only 4 burners, in this business.

My Zazzle earnings are down at least 50-70% if that is comforting to any of you.   Whatever they did to screw up their google product base, or website or whatever... I hope they fix it soon.  I'm not lowering my commissions there either, because people just buy what they see and like regardless of the prices.  It's a retail trap, and women with credit cards on sites like zazzle are dangerous ;P LOL
