    Thank you!

    I have never done it, to be honest. But I guess you just fill in those details and talk about your previous experience with designing?

    1. Yeah, 50% of them never sell. 50% sells, and once they have sold once they for sure sell again. Some become hits and make up for those 50% I lose. It's all about quantity (my designs aren't shit but I am mass-producing them).

    2. Yep, $5,5 due to him writing brand, title, and bullets too. I also got a team uploading my shirts now, but they are not necessary to include in the overall expense (it is like $300/mo).

    3. You can go wild! 1 account 1 billion niches/topics!

    Good luck!

    Thank you!

    Great share! One point though: don't you have to be careful about saying "for a more loose fit please order a size up" ?? I read that Amazon would crack down on them phrases now.

    Thanks man! Haha, yeah been a few years now on this forum - I've been stuck at the same age for a long, long time.

    That's a good point, I'd not recommend anyone using it right now - will try to get the thread updated!

    Thanks man! Appreciate it!

    I love hearing stuff like this! Makes me want to write more and more of these.

    Any suggestions on what I should write about next (related to Merch)? Post them below!

    Great Guide, OP!
    I myself am very interested on this business. Does anybody have been successful opening a Merch By Amazon account after been suspended as a Regular seller on Amazon?

    Does it make sense to rank a site #1 for unicorn t shirt etc then direct traffic to your Amazon merch t shirt page?

    Is it worth buying an approved merch account if you can't get approved or have been waiting forever?

    Thank you and good luck! :)
    I assume you'll be fine. I have no experience in that though.
    All countries as far as I know. You only sell the products in the US though (for now).
    Good luck man! :)
    Good luck! :)
    I am pretty sure you can apply no matter what. I know people from all over the world being connected to the Merch by Amazon platform!
    Hm, redirecting would lead to your site after a while being removed from the index. However, if you create an e-com and include your products there you can make even more sales by promoting it. I have yet to test something like that out though.

    Right now I don't think so, I see people being approved left to right at the moment and there doesn't seem to be as long of a waiting time anymore (previously it was 6 months+ average), now I think if you got a good experience with designing you can get approved in a few days.


    Thanks for all the feedback! Please let me know if you want any other guides on Merch by Amazon! :)

    As previously said by juniorfast1, use Payoneer to receive the money and then transfer it from there.
