    I get that but my main concern is generating traffic. How do I generate traffic to my Shopify store?

    this is a great opportunity guys...I know a girl who made 100k in revenue in one month following this exact same strategy and selling crappy looking MUGS. But she had to pay for every cup shipped for the dropshiping company...but using teespring you dont have to do that....which is why this is a GREAT opportunity!

    Very Detailed and Easy to Understand Guide.

    I applied for Merch by Amazon first when i saw your thread few months ago. Haven't heard from them Since.

    Thanks for sharing! Sounds great!

    But two questions:
    - Is there any chance to change the category or i don't have any influence on the category?
    - Compared to the other method: how is it with returns? Is the anything i have to do?

    Thanks!

    EDIT: Have I correctly understood that I can also sell cups with this method via Amazon?

    Yes, this is the fixed cost. You will not need to actually pay for anything. That 6.75 comes out of your margin. Teespring will add $4 for shipping once the product is live on Amazon, but that will not effect you at all.

    A long time ago I tried Teespring and driving traffic and failed lol. The main difference though is that your products will be on Amazon in front of billions of eyeballs so running traffic will no longer be necessary to make sales.

    This has nothing to do with Shopify, please read the post.

    You will not have control over the category, and you will not have to do anything with returns. Teespring handles everything, all you need to do is upload designs and optimize. You cannot sell cups or mugs on Amazon with this method YET. From talking to the higher ups at Teespring, this is coming (as well as a LOT of other products), but currently only upper body apparel.

    Last question for me for today, you don't need an amazon 39$/month pro account to put tee's on it, no ?

    This is a great guide, but I question the business model (for everyone except Amazon and Teespring) for a long term business.

    Your profit margin is dependent on the quality of your design and the demand for it. You have no control over other factors, such as the fees that Amazon takes or the cost of the raw inputs.

    Just like it has done recently for affiliates, Amazon can change the fee you receive for your design at any time.

    The business model means that you have to be a good designer and the first in to the market.

    As more people try to make a business out of this, the price that an end-customer is willing to pay will reduce as he gets more choice. While a customer might be willing to pay more for a design he prefers, the more designs there are, the more likely he is to choose another at a lower price. Designers will have to compete on price as choice increases.

    What you get is a "race to the bottom", where the only winner is Amazon, who makes the profit on the actual physical good. In the long run, the only other people for whom this might work are the designers who can design at the lowest cost and therefore have a profitable business making cents on each sale, but with volume.

    It is people early into this who are more likely to be able to scale, as they will understand what is needed to do so faster than latecomers for whom the market will be already crowded.

    In my opinion, this is a better business to go into if you're in a country where $1 buys a lot, but one without long term potential if you need $5 to buy a cup of coffee.

    Teespring is listing it under their amazon account, so no.

    Amazon and Teespring win big time with this model. They get all the creative work done for them (the value add on a plain product) with no risk and no cost. The more products they sell, the more they profit from lower negotiated prices for the plain goods. They can also squeeze the margins they pay designers.

    The first designers will make money because no-one else is in the market. Later entrants will not.

    where are you from? I am packing my bags!

    For everyone wondering where the globe is, they are rolling this out today, so if you do not have it yet, just start uploading designs.
