    Completely normal (I own Merch Informer). We use the AWS keys and the associate ID from an affiliate account in order to pull information directly from the API so that we can display information that a lot of other software/plugins cannot show you. I do not personally have access to that information either.

    Yes I'm being lazy but is your site able to serve the UK market?

    I know merch amazon isn't doing UK yet, any insight?

    Hey buddy, could you shed some light on how long will I need to wait until my Merch by Amazon account get approved? I registered it 1 month ago and still wait, just to be note, no one invite me, I just applied lol.

    Even if they wont approve anyway, I still applied the Teespring T2 account, but still no messages till now, ymmmm, I think get a legit account is a big obstacle for starters like me. Thanks.

    I heard they aren't really accepting new applications, not sure tho, I would recommend that you call them that might get you someware try to check on the status of you account etc, explain to them you need to get it activated

    Currently we do not support doing research on the UK Market. That being said, a few of our users are seeing success finding what is successful in the US market and applying it to foreign Amazon marketplaces.

    Do the shopify method I have posted because merch has not accepted anyone new in many months. I will have more information about the teespring update soon.

    Merch is still kind of in beta. Right now they are capping new design submissions per day for existing merch sellers. I've seen days where new submission were halted altogether. Apparently there have been issues with handling the volume, so it doesn't look like they are going to be accepting a whole lot more people in right now. But I could be wrong.
