About Zazzle

All you need to open a free Zazzle store is a computer and a free Zazzle affiliate account.

Zazzle was launched in 1995. Like CafePress, Zazzle allows it users to create custom products, such as shirts, invitations, mugs, binders, keychains, hat and stickers. Zazzle has over 250 product types to choose from, including embroidered products. Zazzle allows it's users to upload designs onto products and publish it for sale on Zazzle's web site. If the product sells, the seller is given a percentage of the sale. The percentage depends on how much you set the royalty on the product for. If a binder sells for $18.95, and you set your royalty for 20%, you will make a 20% profit from the sale price. If it was not your product but was a product that you referred, you will earn 15% of the sale.

With Zazzle there is no upfront investment. You can open a Zazzle store to showcase your products for free. There is no limit to the amount of products you can showcase or to the amount of stores you can open. There is also no inventory risk because the inventory comes from Zazzle. Zazzle ships the product directly to the customer. You do not have to deal with any custom service issues pertain to the customer. If a customer returns a product, they return it to Zazzle. Zazzle handles all the shipping, billing, returns and customer issues. 

All You Need To Open A Zazzle Store Is A Computer!

Getting Paid From Zazzle

There are 2 ways of getting paid from Zazzle. You can choose to have your Zazzle check mailed to you or you can choose to get paid from Zazzle via PayPal. You will receive payment for the sales that cleared 60 days prior. For example, your June check will include cleared sales for April. Zazzle does not withhold taxes from USA residents. However, I believe they started withholding taxes from non US residents. Check their web site for more info.

However, you will want to promote your products outside of Zazzle because you can a 5% referral bonus, and up to a 17% volume bonus, for sales that you referral.

Great information. Signed up ages ago but could never get anything to work so never went back. Perchance I should?
