Re: POD POLL: Zazzle, RedBubble, CafePress or ???

I've been on Fine Art America for years and haven't sold a thing there. I refuse to upgrade to add more images until I get the money in sales to pay for the upgrade. Cafe Press was just too hard to manipulate. I like Society 6 a lot, but am getting most of my results with Zazzle.

I used to say good things about RedBubble, but recent changes there have been a hot mess. I no longer can recommend it!

You won't get any sales on FAA without promoting your images heavily, and the more you have the better your chances, 25 just isn't enough. At $30/year it's far cheaper than most places for the features you get. Also consider this, since you set your own markups with FAA your income from one sale on FAA can easily equal what you get from many sales on Zazzle.

I've made more money through Zazzle than anywhere online to date. You can earn more on bulk items and that's what you aim to promote, at least that's my way of doing it.

Re: POD POLL: Zazzle, RedBubble, CafePress or ???

If you're just joining a POD I think you'd have an easier time on RB than long time members. I disabled all my product options when the last format changes required constant editing. For months now I've been seeing others complain, though in a dwindling amount, that this is still happening. Mostly a problem if you have hundreds or thousands of images there that require attention. I'm glad I'm sitting it out and might just decide to be done with PODs. I can still buy my stuff on private view, and do sometimes. CURIOUS...do other PODs have these format changes that throw everything into chaos, too?

Re: POD POLL: Zazzle, RedBubble, CafePress or ???

Great thread! I've been using Zazzle since the early 90's and a lot has changed since then. Not many choices for sellers, anymore, in terms of how your shop appears to buyers. That used to be the big "thing" - the personal look of your shop. Now it's all pretty sterile looking and everybody's shop looks the same.

If you have something that sells more than half a dozen times it will, more than likely continue to sell and ignore the changes as time passes. I have one design that sells regularly on a variety of products and it has sold multiple copies worldwide. I wish someone would just buy a license for the image and sell products in brick and mortar stores. But, I'm happy with what I make there - about enough to buy a box of pastels or some tubes of paint.

Maybe next I'll try some of my painted art and see what happens.

Every POD site I've ever been part of operates exactly like that. I'm on RedBubble, Zazzle, and Fine Art America, and am currently doing the Chaos Shuffle with all of them!

Truly -- it never ends.

Thanks for this! Sorry I didn't see it til today. I have not had the best computer/internet access for awhile, and this was one of the sites I just couldn't manage well on the phone so I didn't visit it for awhile.
