    The Benefits of Zazzle

    How do I get started creating a Zazzle Store?

    Vincent van Gogh only sold a single piece of work during his lifetime. If only he had found Zazzle!

    Whether you're an artist, a photographer, a writer or a graphic designer, whether it's your hobby or your livelihood, you can upload your original work to display for sale on Zazzle products.

    As a store owner, you may use Zazzle in many ways:

    • Generate royalty income on your original work
    • Display an unlimited number of products where your fans can find you (free!)
    • Promote and advertise your original work
    • Create design templates that others may customise (for birthdays, anniversaries and so on) and on which you earn royalties
    • Manufacture specific products for your own use or to resell (no minimum orders!)

    Displaying your work at Zazzle is nonexclusive, which means you may continue using your contributed work for any other purpose you want to, including selling it elsewhere. In the meantime, you earn a royalty (that you specify) on anything you sell at Zazzle. You can earn income for years on a single contribution, or from hundreds - it's up to you. It's free and it's easy!

    Zazzle allows you to present your work to a worldwide audience at no cost to you. That's right: you don't have to buy a URL, design a website or pay inventory and production costs. Zazzle makes it free and easy for you to market your creative work.

    Follow these simple steps to begin earning money.

    Register. Create a Member account to get started. You can open and manage multiple stores under one Member account. Store names need to be 6-20 characters and contain no spaces or dashes. 

    Create designs. Create product designs by uploading your images, adding text, and playing with fonts and colours. Your image files will be saved in a private Image Page so you can use them later to create new products. You will be able to choose categories in which you want to display your work. You may also choose whether other Zazzle users can customise your products.

    Post products for sale. You may keep your products in a your-eyes-only Private Products section or share them with potential customers (and start earning money!) through the Zazzle marketplace. Your Public Store is equipped with powerful tools to showcase your work, invite comments, promote upcoming events, and more. You can even allow your potential customers to further customise your work to create their own unique products.

    Create a store. After you have created a Member account, you can create one or more stores by clicking "Create a store" under My Account. Once you create a store you can access it by visiting your store's address, which will look similar to this: You can also customise your store(s) by visiting the store management page under My Account.

    Earn money. With Zazzle's "Name Your Royalty" program, you can specify how much you make on every sale of your products on Zazzle. That's right - if you say you want to make 20%, you'll make 20% of the sale. If you want to make 50%, you'll make 50% of the sales price. But the higher the royalty, the higher the sales price.

    Become an Associate. Take your business to the next level: become an Associate and drive traffic to Zazzle from your own web site. With each purchase from a referred customer, you'll earn a 15% commission. And if that customer buys your products, you'll earn that 15% referral on top of whatever royalty you set! That's a minimum of 25% in earnings!

    Learn about our newest self-promotion tool, the Zazzle Star. The Zazzle Star helps you share your store, sell more products and earn more money. Every Zazzle can now have their own user-friendly store link that makes it incredibly easy to merchandise and promote their store to friends, family, contacts, and the rest of the world!
