    Hello, everyone,
    I have been very active in the T-shirt business lately and have been thinking about how to automate my daily work.

    Currently I am only active in the Spreadshirt area, but that will change soon. Therefore I built myself a small webtool that captures my designs for upload, fetches interesting keywords via an API, generates a random description from the title and publishes it on Spreadshirt DE/US.

    Since I employ several designers and therefore have many designs available, such a tool makes absolute sense for me.

    Don't wonder about the design, I just built it today :D. So I only had requirements for the functions.

    What do you think? Would you be interested in something like that, would you under certain circumstances pay something if it has special features?

    What other features would you like? :)

    If I want to develop this now as a progressing project, I could document it in this thread or do I have to move it?^^

    Thank you

    It's just a silly pun. Don't mind me.

    I would pay for it since i have an upcoming t-shirt line, and it would be better to use a description if they have the right keywords. Would be better since we don't have to hire writers then and can be on our hand, but the description quality should be good.
    Other feature would be good if we can deploy it on wp or Magento or Prestashop or other cms.

    Lol. Before making the tool good, make sure the Russians understand what’s written on the website :D

    yes, I've already gone further and set up conceptual releases. Providers are currently Merch By Amazon, SpreadShirtUS and SpreadShirtDE.
    The problem is that not every provider has an API and to automate the process you have to authenticate yourself somehow.

    At Merch By Amazon this is currently the case. Here I'm currently looking for a solution (if there is one) without the user must deposit his real login data.

    Nice to hear, I'm trying to make a relatively narrow but effective offer for the release. Of course, features follow continuously.

    Of course we will also need beta testers, but it's not ready yet. Just have a look here from time to time :).

    Sounds very interesting! I would definately pay for it, if the tool can fetch german keywords and make german descriptions.

    Edit: I saw it is optimized for SpreadshirtDE, too, I guess it can make german descriptions or is it only in english?

    You can maintain your description, titles and keywords for each provider yourself. Suggestions or automation of the description may come in a later release.

    Currently we also have a preview GIF here to better understand the process :).
