I had a bit forgotten about GrabYourDesign (GYD) until I received another payout from them. They are a rather slow earner for me with little royalties compared to other print on demand websites but they do a LOT to spread your products out there and make sure your designs can reach a broad customer base. They do sell on Amazon in Europe, Ebay and some other mostly French online shops. I can recommend them, uploading your work is fast and hassle-free!

In January 2019, I had four sales with them:

Case for Samsung Galaxy S3 - Wuppertal Suspension Railway by Christine aka stine1

Earnings from theKase are still coming in but they have been better. It’s probably due to more artists designing for them than 1 year ago. These are my sales from May 2015:

April 2015 was a rather successful month on Society6 and I even referred two sales and earned 15% extra due to the curator link 🙂

These two are the sales I have referred:

Faux Fairytale Tote Bag by Ampersand Artworks (Ornery Owl Arts) on Society6

Faux Fairytale Tote Bag by Ampersand Artworks (Ornery Owl Arts) on Society6

WHAT GOES UP, REVISITED - Bold Royal Blue Pink Bubbles Whimsical Underwater Ocean Abstract Painting by EbiEmporium (ebiemporium) on Society6

WHAT GOES UP, REVISITED – Bold Royal Blue Pink Bubbles Whimsical Underwater Ocean Abstract Painting by EbiEmporium (ebiemporium) on Society6

Both works are really unique and beautiful pieces of art and I am very happy that I was able to refer these two sales!

And these are my own sales during April 2015 on Society6:

Prismatic Palm Wall Clock / White White by Christine aka stine1 on Society6

Prismatic Palm Wall Clock / White White by Christine aka stine1 on Society6

Love Philadelphia Sculpture Framed Art Print by Christine aka stine1 on Society6

Love Philadelphia Sculpture Framed Art Print by Christine aka stine1 on Society6

I was able to sell the Prismatic Palm wall clock three times during April with different handle and frame color combinations. And the LOVE photo from Philadelphia is also beginning to get more and more popular.

Yay, I seem to improve my Cafepress sales to an average of one item per month. It is pretty ridiculous compared to my Zazzle earnings but better than nothing.

During July 2014 I was able to sell one smartphone case, here it is:

Funky Seattle Space Needle iPhone 5/5S Snap Case from Cafepress

Funky Seattle Space Needle iPhone 5/5S Snap Case from Cafepress

This sale earned me $2, not too bad either. I am always proud when someone likes my digital art enough to buy it 🙂

 

During the 23rd calendar week of 2013 (June 3rd to 9th) I had 5 succesful sales. Two additional sales got cancelled and during that week a payment was issued:

€100.36 is about $130.00 🙂 I do not earn that much every month, I get a payment every other month since my payment threshold is set to €52 or more. Pretty nice, huh?

Here are the items I was able to sell through Zazzle during this week:

Painted Ladies in San Francisco (Tilt & Shift) Square Wallclocks

This wall clock is one of my many products where I had thought that no one would ever want them. But they sell!

I had another eight sales during that week and earned a bit over $10 which is not bad. One sale got cancelled. I had no referral sales.

Here are my eight sales from that week:

This photo was shoot a bit over 3 years ago on Route 66, I have created this photo edit recently.

This photo was shot half a year ago during winter, it is a beautiful makro or close-up shot.

This photo is a royalty-free photo for everyone to use. It is pretty popular on many designs.

Postage stamps are a really good earner on Zazzle since people tend to buy more than one sheet.

This is the first and so far only sale with this photo edit overlooking Las Vegas, Nevada.

And this is te third card we had also sold the week before 🙂

How is Zazzle working for you at the moment?

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:

Volume Bonus Program

Multiply your Zazzle earning power beyond your royalties with volume bonuses!

As a Zazzle Associate, you can earn volume bonuses by referring your sales on Zazzle. The more you sell, the more you earn!

New tiers and payout for new program:

  • Earn money on your store and marketplace sales
  • Bonuses start at just $100
  • Build a bigger bonus payment by combining your sales from multiple accounts
  • This program and ALL selling on Zazzle is 100% FREE!

Starting July 1, 2013:

Monthly Base Sales % Bonus

How to Earn More on Zazzle

Although I had started to sell stuff on Zazzle less than one year ago, my earnings are already pretty good. Read this article to find out how you can make Zazzle work for you!

[Removed reference to Triond and Gather since both sites are a thing of the past]

In this article I will try to tell you what I am doing to increase Zazzle salesand you can do the same!

All you need is a Zazzle shop, some products and a bit of time.

First of all, the more Zazzle products you have up in your store, the more you will sell. Alternatively, if you don’t want to sell your products or simply don’t have photos you want to use, why not promote other products from Zazzle? You earn 15% for referring a buyer to ANY product on Zazzle. So there is no excuse anymore, you just have to promote!

I write articles about Zazzle and some products and even about my sales. I use social networking and social bookmarking sites a lot plus traffic exchanges. I won’t go into detail too much now as I am planning on writing a comprehensive book about my success which will include all dirty little secrets about how to increase your Zazzle sales and earnings. So you might want to stay tuned *whistle*

In addition to that, I strongly recommend visiting my new blog:

Zizzling Zazzle – Home of stine1 on Zazzle

for far more information about me, my store and what I am doing to earn more with Zazzle.
