Marketplace Changes Coming
Zazzle is making changes that aim to increase traffic and sales for the entire Zazzle community.
Volume Bonus Becomes Associate Volume Bonus
We’re committed to providing strong incentives to all Zazzle community members to encourage each person to put in the extra effort in generating more awareness for products on Zazzle. With that in mind, starting July 1st, the current volume bonus structure will be transitioned to a Zazzle Associate Bonus Program. You can make money by referring customers to Zazzle. We believe that this new program will align the Zazzle community around generating the most revenue from referred traffic. As a Zazzle Seller you are already enrolled in this new program! We will also host a Zazzle Town Hall on Friday with questions and comments.
More Flexible Royalty Rate
Starting June 14th, we will change the standard royalty rate on newly published products to a new lowered threshold of 5%. This will give you additional flexibility in creating pricing that is consistent with your product promotional strategy. You will continue to have complete flexibility in naming your own royalty and the royalty rates you have already set will not be changed. All of your published products will continue to have the same royalty rate that you previously selected.
Zazzle is a community which consists of talented artists, designers, Sellers, and Associates like you. We are a thriving market today because all of our members and as always we are making changes to ensure growth for everyone. We’re excited to be sharing the work we’ve been doing behind the scenes to increase traffic and sales for all of our community. Are you as obsessed with mobile as we are? Great things are ahead with more news to come.
Kids’ Apparel Refresh
We’re excited to announce new kids’ apparel! With the addition of 24 styles, we now have 40 total styles of kids’ apparel and over 450 total combinations of styles and colors.
We’ve teamed up with top brands, such as Hanes and American Apparel, to help you outfit your little ones.
Summer Designs Show-off
It’s officially summer and that means pool parties, BBQs, weddings and fun times in the sun. With all the events happening this season, it’s the prefect time to get your creativity flowing.
Whether it’s a summer-themed invite for the perfect destination beach wedding or custom postage for a BBQ get-together, we want to see your designs! Messenger bags, apparel and luggage tags are great picks this season for your imagination and designs.
Trend tips for this season: nautical, vintage and monogrammed designs are always “in.”
Maker Faire Highlights
Zazzle was the Goldsmith Sponsor of Maker Faire Bay Area 2013 and hosted ‘Art, Meet Science’ – an installation where attendees could make artwork uniquely their own. San Francisco artists, including ProSeller Nidhi Chanani, created custom illustrations for Maker Faire that were transformed into giant coloring books.
The installation won three Editor’s Choice Blue Ribbons from Make Magazine!
