After almost one year with not many mentionable pirate copies and bootleg products on the Amazon.com Marketplace, Chinese copy cats strike again and this time they are fighting with self-adhesive window stickers and door stickers. They ripped the image off a glass coaster (it says so in the title) and I have reported LOTS of them today. I have an up-to-date collection of them – using Amazon’s Wishlist feature to keep them together so that I can check their status without having to bookmark anything:

Do you search for pirate copies and report them?

Update 2020-06-30: Amazon.com was very fast this time. It took them less than 12 hours to remove all reported copies!

During April 2020, Amazon had halted all merch sales for the US marketplace. Only the UK marketplace and the German DE Marketplace where still selling and printing their products. Therefore, sales decreased drastically. They have just started to get back on track a few days ago and activate US products at a slow pace. My guess is that is goes by popularity…

Anyway, I did sell two designs on t-shirts in Germany – but one of them was cancelled 😦 Since I only report successful sales, this is the only t-shirt I could sell on Amazon Merch in April 2020:

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:

Ich konnte im Mai meine Verkäufe mit Amazon Merch wieder leicht steigern, zumindest in Deutschland. Der internationale Markt ist weiterhin… sagen wir mau weil überfüllt.

Diese Designs haben sich verkauft:

April and May have not really been good months for Amazon Merch US, I sold a total of three of these Popsockets:

Amazon has deleted a lot of my designs that have not been selling within the first 180 days, so I need to get busy with uploading. Since I have been tired up to Tier 500, I can now use the multi uploader, which is quite a nice feature.
