    Hi there, am just enquiring as to when or if you are likely to join forces with as I would like to insert my zazzle product flash box into my bebo profile. however is not recognised by the widget affilates.



  6. Josh Reeves, Product Manager Says:

    Vivian, you can definitely publish posters that you’ve made on Zazzle into the marketplace. This is true for all the products that we make and if anyone buys the product, then you will receive the royalty as normal.

    Hope this helps!

  7. Josh Reeves, Product Manager Says:

    Wiks, we are currently not an official widget partner for Bebo so you will not be able to post a flash panel of your Zazzle products to Bebo yet. However, we just launched a t-shirt contest with Bebo ( and you can post your submission as well as a flash panel of all the submissions to your Bebo profile. In the future, we hope to let you do this for all the products you create as well.

  9. Steve Says:

    Hey Josh – I ‘m wondering if it’s possible to customize which products that are featured in my Flash Panel, and also the order in which they’re displayed. I’ve looked around a bit but I can’t find anything on this, and it’s not always ideal for the panel to feature the most recent products I’ve created, as it’s doing now.

    So is this possible, and if so, how is it done? Thanks in advance.
