How is Zazzle working for you at the moment?

During this week in 2013, I had eight sales and only two cancellations. That’s a pretty average week. I had no referral sales where I helped selling other artists’ designs. In total, I earned a bit over $2 during this week. Not very much as I sold many less expensive items like postcards but still better than nothing, right?

So here are my sales of the 20th week:

This is a photo, my husband had shot during the last winter solely with the purpose of selling it on Zazzle *lol* As this is not the first item with this photo, I’d say: mission accomplished 🙂

Everything that is related to “Shades of Grey” is a big seller at the moment. A coincidence?

This is a more colourful variation of our Santa Monica Pier photograph.

This is one of our most popular postcards!

A beautiful and picturesque scenery, don’t you think? It’s the Californian Pacific coast.

The floating train in Wuppertal is highly unique. In German it’s “Schwebebahn” and is a popular sight of the city Wuppertal. For the next few years, I will be working in Wuppertal and am looking forward to shooting many more photos of the floating train 🙂

This is another one of my most popular postcards. The photo is about 3 and a half years old. Back then, Arnold Schwarzenegger was still governor of California.

So there had been really horrible news around lately that we sellers would not earn any volume bonus anymore. I myself had misunderstood the official Zazzle news. I thought that from July 2013 on, we only can earn bonus when we REFER sales. But that is not true, the basic seller volume bonus remains, the only thing that changes are the percentages. We will earn less (in my case 1% instead of 7% in a regular month.

This is the official information about Zazzle’s volume bonus from their website:
