Tag Archive: royalty

Starting July 20th (Zazzle only updates pricing due to royalty changes once a month), I will conduct an experiment. My goal is to increase sales and what will I try to achieve this? Well, my current royalty is set to 14.9% (not 15% since then Zazzle deducts 5% of your royalty earnings for fees). During my experiment, I will lower the royalty rate to 5% to the more expensive products on Zazzle, including canvas prints, messenger and laptop bags and things I seem to never sell, e.g. wristlets, wallets, belt buckles and some other stuff. On the other hand, I will increase the royalty on my 10 or 20 most popular items to 30% to see whether this will make them less attractive.

What do you think will happen after July 20?


I was a bit stunned when checking my emails. There was a Paypal notification telling me I have received $9.40 from Printalloverme!

Thank you so much for your printalloverme designs. This is a confirmation of your commissions paid to your paypal account. If you have any questions, let us know! Thanks again TEAM PRINTALLLOVERME Make the Internet Real URL 2 IRL

Wow, thank you! This is the commission for the hat I had sold just last week 🙂 Thank you, PAOM!


Welcome to yet another post of my sales within a week. In calendar week 38 of 2013 I was able to sell 19 items which is pretty impressive. It was definitely a week above average!

This article will feature a few ideas about what you could do with your first payment from Zazzle.

First of all, the road to your first Zazzle payment will be a rocky one. Zazzle is not a very beginner friendly site and its definitely not a “get paid to” site. Zazzle is a print-on-demand website that pays you a percentage (royalty) when you help them selling their products. If you are an artist or have photos you think are good enough, you can even design your own products and market them through Zazzle without any investment.

The payment threshold is $70 €50). Below that, you can still be paid once a year but they may deduct fees then. So it is important to earn more than $70 per year. This is not one of many articles about how to reach this goal and how to earn money with Zazzle. Nope, this article will collect ideas on what to do with the money you have earned from Zazzle.

Here are some ideas:

  1. One idea means to treat yourself or your whole family. Why not go to the movies or to a restaurant? Do something fun and spend it with your loved ones.
  2. You can use your earnings to pay for Zazzle products before reaching the payout limit. So you could get birthday or Christmas presents for zilch, nada, niente – for FREE. I know that many people like to collect Amazon gift cards over the year to cash them in for Christmas, so why not do the same with Zazzle?
  3. If your payment has been a bit more generous and you sell mainly photo products, why not invest the earnings in a better photo camera? That way you can ensure improved quality and keep earning more and more, don’t you think?
  4. For bigger earners (like me), why not save the earnings of a year for a small vacation or at least a weekend trip? In 2012, I have earned over $600 online with Zazzle and Gather. In 2013, I am trying to reach $1000.

Which idea do you like most and do you have any other ideas for our fellow Zazzlers?


On April 15th I had two referral sales for Lord of the Rings products but unfortunately, the products are not available anymore to share since it was some kind of limited edition design. Anyway, I earned about €5 from these two referral sales and a few more cents with some own sales:
