Zizzling Zazzle - Christine aka stine1 designing print-on-demand gifts

In December 2014 (six weeks ago) I had ordered four coffee mugs from Society6. They were running the usual Christmas promotions and I could get four mugs for the price of three. Still pretty expensive for photo mugs that you could also get in offline shops around every corner or online in a gazillion other cheaper shops but hey – I admit that I only wanted them so that I could brag “Hey, this is my photo on this mug!” and recommend Society6 to my friends and family.

Ok, so it took them six weeks from USA to Germany, of which one week is courtesy to German customs since there was no invoice on the outside. I had to send them infos about the order and about the payment (print from Paypal) and I am really lucky that I did not have to pay taxes!

Drumroll please…. my Cafepress sales in March 2020…. new record…. phew…. ZERO.

Yes, zero sales on Cafepress for me during March 2020.

And since the News & Announcements always look like this:

I can’t even tell whether their printing factories are closed or whatever. Looking at their Facebook page, their business goes on as usual but who knows…. not me….

Anyway, in case you would like to follow me on Cafepress, please check out my public profile with all my designs and products HERE, thanks bunches 👍

Yay, we all have managed to get out of that horrible month of March in 2020. How is everyone doing? Also fed up with the lockdowns and self quarantine? Let’s stay at home and be strong together!

Amazon Merch has stopped printing their items for the US market on March 25 due to Covid-19 and therefore sales crashed – plus you cannot create any new products at the moment.

Before the pandemic started to havoc in the US, I had the following sales:

May you be blessed with health, I wish all the best for you and your families!

You can say anything about the corona virus and the quarantine… some print on demand websites skyrocket this month and this is a huge plus for me. Well, the rest not so much… I know we would all be better off without the virus.

Anyway, I had my first very surprising sale on VIDA:

 Fancy Prismatic Flower Sleeveless Top by Christine aka stine1 on VIDA

Fancy Prismatic Flower Sleeveless Top by Christine aka stine1 on VIDA

The downside: I cannot tell you yet how much royalty I will receive since VIDA does not list any information. There is no detailled sales dashboard. You can see how many items you have sold per day and you receive an email telling you which product you have sold – but there are no statistics in your account that tell you ANYTHING.

I wrote to VIDA about this asking for details and this is their answer:

[…] Regarding your sales, you’ll be able to see the number of sold items in your Sales Dashboard. However, if you need complete details of your sales, you need to write to us and ask for a Sales Report. We’ll be happy to provide it.

As additional information, we pay our designers through PayPal on a quarterly (every three months of the year) basis. Designers must have a PayPal email on file with us to receive quarterly payments from VIDA. Here’s our payment schedule:

  • January through March – Payout will be by the end of May.

  • April through June – Payout will be by the end of August.

  • July through September – Payout will be by the end of November.

  • October through December – Payout will be by the end of February.[…]

 

Phhhhhew, do they honestly expect me to keep asking? Oh hell, if I ever sell more than this one sleeveless top, I will ask them on a monthly basis just to annoy them and make them implement such a feature!!! EVERY print on demand website can list your sales, why not VIDA?
