My sales on theKase have dropped this summer significally so I will sum a few months up. Let me show you my sales from July, August, September and October 2015 so that you can see the decrease. I have also not added more designs because all of them get denied and I am tired of writing to support to get them added with a “sorry” from them telling me they are restructuring their site and overthinking their design policies. How many months do you have to reconsider?

Overall, I am getting pretty discouraged with my sales and hope I will make it to a second cashout sometime soon. €100 is a lot to achieve with only a few sales per month.

During June 2015 I have mostly sold the usual suspects of designs that sell monthly whereas the majority of my designs is never bought. With theKase not accepting new designs at the moment, sales are still average and I don’t think of stopping to sell there but it is a bit disappointing. Please, theKase… let us add new designs so that we can improve our portfolio 🙂

Anyway, these are the sales from June 2015. Click on the screenshot to get to my profile page with all available designs and models:

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:

With March 2015 being already slower than the months before, April 2015 is even more slower. I have only sold eight cases during that month, seven with my popular Caribbean palm tree and one with a different design. Here are the two designs which earned me $10.81 in total:

After a pretty huge Christmas season on the Kase, spring seems to slow down a lot. In addition, theKase does not accept any new works by me as they want to decrease their portfolio and tidy up their shops.

During March 2015, I have only sold 14 cases – 10 with my popular Caribbean palm and one of each with the other designs:

I have earnded $14.52 for March 2015 on theKase. Not too bad but I had better months!

Did you get one of the brand new Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphones and are in need of a unique case to protect it? theKase already offers cases for the Galaxy S6 and you can order them online.

Here are some designs from my shop, just click on the picture:

January 2014 was the first month after the great Christmas sale season and I could still sell 14 cases in total which earned me $19.17. Again, there was one return but that is ok for me. I only sold two of my most popular designs, 12 cases with the first one and the other 2 cases with the second two. Here they are as iPhone 6 cases:

December 2014 has been a very successful month over on theKase with a huge variety of designs being sold. I also had three returns which I hope are not due to my designs. I have heard/read that the print quality in the shops is not always the best.

Anyway here is an overview of what I was able to sell on theKase in December 2014:

I’d definitely wish for more months like this one! 🙂

After a few slow months during summer, theKase really skyrocketed during the last few months of 2014 and surprised me with decent earnings. I am really glad it is working out well now, just like I would expect it. Every month seems to have one or two best-selling designs which can change in the following month. It’s still a mystery to me why one design can sell 20 cases in one month and none in the months before or after. Since theKase also has many offline shops, maybe they randomly put certain cases on display for that one month and switch to other cases in the following month? That might explain this phenomenon.

Anyway, here are the sales for November 2014:

As you can see here, the Isla Saona case has been extremely popular for a few months. I did not expect it to be successful for two or more consecutive months but it’s still being sold. The other cases have been popular before are just starting to become popular.

I do not want to link to the same case designs repetitively in every post, if you are interested in my designs please just click on the screenshot above to get to my theKase profile.
