From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

The European Peacock (Inachis io), more commonly known simply as the Peacock butterfly, is a colourful butterfly, found in Europe and temperate Asia as far east as Japan. Classified as the only member of the genus Inachis (the name is derived from Greek mythology, meaning Io, the daughter of Inachus). It should not be confused or classified with the “American peacocks” in the genus Anartia; these are not close relatives of the Eurasian species. The Peacock butterfly is resident in much of its range, often wintering in buildings or trees. It therefore often appears quite early in spring. The Peacock butterfly has figured in research where the role of eye-spots as an anti-predator mechanism has been investigated.

In the British Isles, the butterfly is found in England, Scotland (including Orkney and Shetland), Wales, and Ireland. The Peacock is expanding its range and is not known to be threatened.

Thank you very much, Wikipedia! 🙂

May I present the most beautiful Zazzle products with this pretty butterfly on them? Some are made by me, some are made by other Zazzlers.

Long live the Volume Bonus on Zazzle… well, I will miss it *sigh*

During the 31st week of 2013 (July 29th to August 4th) I got the June Volume Bonus cleared. This will probably be the last Volume Bonus I will ever earn from Zazzle since they had changed how it works. I got $12.53 – not bad, huh?

The sales were pretty average, no one got cancelled. Hurray!

Here we go:

I have earned a bit under $10 during that week plus the Volume Bonus.

And I might stop posting to Triond first. The earning rate keeps decreasing, I am earning about 30 CENTS per month which is ridiculous! Posting unique content to this blog would also improve stine1.info, so don’t expect me to post much on Triond anymore.

Since Triond does have severe server problems this week and their sites are pretty unstable, I do not bother sharing this post with them first. So this post will be published exclusively on my blog 🙂

The 30th calendar week of 2013 (July 22nd to 28th) has been a fabulous week for me on Zazzle. Take a look at what I was able to sell:

The 29th week of 2013 during July was a pretty successful week. I had no cancellation and a total of seven direct sales on Zazzle which earned me almost $8. No referral sales though. Here are the items I was able to sell during that week:

The first two were business cards that are not available through my shop anymore. Probably a custom order and I don’t have a link to share for you. Happens quite a lot lately.

Week 28 of 2013 was an average week with 5 direct sales. I have earned a total of approx. $12 with those sales, so I was more than pleased.

Here are the 5 sales I was able to generate:

This car sticker is a repated sale and the most popular item I sell in Germany. It is written in a dialect from Cologne and means “Amelie on tour”, the name and the colours can be edited and changed.

This is a pretty popular royalty-free photo I sell occasionally.

I have sold this luggage tag TWICE in one day to two different customers. I don’t think this is a coincidence. What do you think?

 

 

During that week, I had 5 direct sales and 2 referral sales, which is quite good.

Here are the products I was able to sell which earned me 11% (approx. $13.50) in royalty:

I have sold these to TWO customers, so they do count twice.

Isn’t this an awesome photo? My husband shot it in January during our Caribbean Cruise. It is simply perfect and extremely unique. A red British public telephone booth on a scenic tropical Caribbean sandy beach? Awesome!!!!

And another product with my popular grey sparkling photo edit of the Santa Monica Pier. I really do wonder why this photo edit has become so popular. Does it have anything to do with 50 Shades of Grey or is that just a coincidence? What do you think? Anyway, I am happy to sell so many Christmas gifts!

And here we have the very colourful version of my photo edits. The Santa Monica Pier is extremely popular bit I know, I AM repeating myself. Sorry!

And then we have the referral sales I was able to generate – I earned about $7 with them. Unfortunately, I cannot see what it was – again. I hate that. They probably were products designed by the buyer himself, and not posted to the marketplace. But I am grateful for the 7 bucks!

During the last week of June I had 5 successful sales on Zazzle. Read on to find out more 🙂

This sculpture has been dismantled this year, so I guess the buyer of this iPad Mini Case wanted to preserve the memory. We shot this photo about 3 years ago.

I have sold a bunch of these cards, I think it was a lot of 20 🙂

If you have read last week’s post, you might remember that these two clocks had been cancelled last week. I don’t know why but the buyer came back!

As I had mentioned before, this Santa Monica Pier photo is my most successful and most popular photo with many different photo edits for every taste.

Our Caribbean photos also gain popularity quickly. This makes me especially proud since there is a lot of competition out there!

The first half of 2013 is almost over, read more to see my sales of week 25.

The negative first: I had a total of 3 cancellations during week 25, I’d like to post them anyway:

I had been really, really happy about selling these two clocks. What a pity that they got cancelled!

And also this beautiful scenic post card got cancelled:

But now on with the successful sales. I sold 3 products which seems to not be much, but I had a ton of referral sales, so it evens out. Here are my direct sales:

This tropical scenic beach is “Rockly Bay” on Tobago. The first beach we had been to on our Caribbean cruise – swimming was not allowed 😦

This floating train is a famous unique method of public transportation in Wuppertal. I am also currently working in Wuppertal, so expect more photos of the trains, soon 🙂

And now on with the massive referral sales I had. In total, I had 5 referral sales but 3 of them are not accessible anymore. Probably products that had been custom designed without being listed in the public shop. So here are the two you can look at:

I have no idea where this lead came from as I have never advertised this case, but it’s cute – in a creepy kind of way 🙂

This photo definitely is unique and funny, don’t you agree?

So, what have you sold on Zazzle lately?
