Tag Archive: Cologne


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 the first dart board (if I remember correctly) I was able to sell. It’s a great photo, isn’t it?

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?

 

 

I think this is the third triple sale day, so a triple triple sale day *lol* – INCEPTION!

 

Funny, huh?

The first sale are two beautiful postcards featuring a sunrise over Cologne in Germany. We had shot this photo from an airplane:

The buyer is Anna-Maria from Wesel in Germany, that’s near Cologne. Anna-Maria has earned me $0.10 in royalty. Thank you!

The second sale is one sheet of postage stamps with one of my most popular royalty-free designs:

A postcard sale to Germany, hurray!

Sonja from Wesel is one of my not so many German customers. I am really proud to sell something to my fellow countrymen (and -women) *lol*

Sonja has bought three of these postcards:

I had waited a few days before posting about new sales since the rate of cancellations seems to be pretty high this month.

Yes, that’s right. About one third of my recent sales this month get cancelled again within 48 hours. Some buyers who cancelled something are coming back after a few days and purchase the product again – but not all. It was a bit frustrating to post much about sales only to find them cancelled the next day *sigh*

So, on November 4th I had two sales. The first one is a postcard of the interior of the gothic Cologne Cathedral:

Remarkable architecture, isn’t it? The buyer was Veronica in Goose Creek, SC and she earned me $0.64 with buying eight of these postcards.

The second sale was a throw pillow I had designed less than 48 hours before:

Sold to Sivan in Stoughton, MA for $3.78 in royalty. Thank you for your purchase!

I knew that shooting our own photos of the Cologne Cathedral would make us a profit in Zazzle 🙂

This sale does not earn us a huge sum, but small amounts do add up!

Someone anonymous from Aachen in Germany has bought this beautiful fridge magnet:

This sale earned us €0.47 which should be a bit more than $0.70. Not bad, huh?

I have a lot of products online with different photos of the gothic Cathedral in Cologne and this one is the second item I have sold with such a photo. Way to go 🙂

 

Have a great weekend!
