Hello Wizzley friends, i have been out for a long time from Wizzley since i was busy with my Zazzle Shop. Yeah i opened it after reading so much about it and learning a lot from all the zazzlers here. However i need your help with regard to using images on zazzle products. I have been using pixabay images since they are free.

Can i use any image given on the website? What about other free image websites? Are there any, then please do let me know. I need images for Christmas at the moment......Any help would be much appreciated

Hi Younghopes,

I know you are working hard on building up Zazzle.  Using images is a tricky thing.  Even though Pixabay has many wonderful images, not all of them can be used to sell on Zazzle products.  Anything that is very generic, like ornaments, or things without a specific "name" or brand, could be used.  There are other sites but you will have to pay a minimal amount to acquire their photos for commercial use.

I have used Fotolia and Dreamstime, but have paid for the images.   Of course there are others as well.

I hope this helps.  Send me a message if you need further explanation.

My strategy is to have something for most every occasion to offer in my Z stores, but I've learned that Christmas is not the time I sell a lot of cards.  Don't forget to focus on unique holiday gifts too.  Zazzle now has so many new items which would be great for gift-giving.  A Wizzley to go along with it would also help show them off.  

Have fun Laughing

Perhaps that mean i should not just focus on Christmas Greetings or Christmas Wedding rather it would be better to go for unique gifts too like jewelry, mugs, calenders i think, perhaps that would work. Is that so?

I can't tell you what would work for you, but for me cards are not the sellers.  It's something you will have to figure out, and once you see what works for you this holiday season, then you'll have a better idea of what customers want.
