Wow that one was a doozy last night! As you may have noticed, there have been some changes over at the ZAZZLE to the Dot Com thanks to hard work from our engineering, IT and QA teams. Thanks guys!
We’ve launched a ton of new features including NEW pet clothing, more seller tools, product style control, and much more! Also, we’ve officially changed some naming onsite. From now on galleries will be known as STORES and contributors will be known as SELLERS! To alleviate confusion I’ve come up with this simple paragraph to help remind you:
“Stores are to galleries as sellers are to contributors, and contributors are to galleries as stores are to sellers, in the case of working on the websites Zazzle.com and Zazzle.co.uk. When selling on any other website (why would you want to do that?) this rule no longer applies.”
NEW Pet Clothing: Check out the latest Zazzle product for the furry, four-legged friends, Zazzle custom pet clothing! These fun and cute t-shirts come in 8 style and color combinations and are great for dogs large and small. Sellers will also love putting some of the great dog t-shirt designs onsite on actual dog t-shirts! See below for some of the new dog shirts that have been published since last night’s release.

New Flash Uploader: Uploading a bunch of images? Waiting is no more! Now you can upload multiple images at once (just shift or crtl click on the files in the dialog) and you can watch as the status bar goes from 0% to 100% (no more guesstimating the time). Also this tool is Mac compatible for all the Steve Jobs lovin’ Sellers out there.

Product Style Control: Now when posting t-shirts and other apparel for sale you’ve got added control over what style of product your design will be available for purchase on. For example, you can elect to merchandise your design only on sustainable apparel SKUs, but not on any other SKUs. This added control is great for making your stores much more branded for the customer your designs are tailored for.

New Earnings Reports: Now you can see if your sales qualify for volume bonus with the “3rd party referred” column. If there’s a “yes” in the column then the sale was referred by Zazzle Associate (learn more about becoming a Zazzle Associate) and if there’s a “no,” that means the sale came from your store or the Zazzle marketplace.

Advanced Store Customization BETA: Take your store on Zazzle to the next level with advanced store customization. Now you can customize all the HTML and CSS of your store to make a branded experience that is seamless from your blog, website and more. Check out the design by contributor Retropolis_Travel as an example of the stunning work you can do with this advanced store skinning. Just a reminder, this is in BETA TESTING mode so please save all your changes in a separate file off Zazzle just in case some issues arise, we wouldn’t want you to lose any of that hard work!
