Check your understanding:

Redbubble, Teespring and Merch by Amazon are marketplaces that also fully handle the manufacturing, shipping, and customer support, which make them a great option for a passive income source. 

Etsy and Shopify require you to integrate with a 3rd party POD supplier and manage your own store and customer support. They require more work and have an initial setup cost. However, if you are not looking for passive income and willing to put in some extra work and risk, these option allow higher margins and profits if done right.  

A good approach may be to test your designs and kick off your way into POD using the first marketplaces and then if you wish to scale and expand switch to your own store model.


Redbubble offers you traffic, fulfillment, shipping, and customer support without any special requirement. You can literally focus on uploading designs and let them do the rest.

Teesping requires you will drive the first few sales and only then they start driving their own traffic to your designs. Merch by Amazon is hard to get into and has tiers that limit the amount of designs you can upload until you make enough sales. 



Key takeaways:

Top 5 sites to earn money from print on demand:



Pros: Focus your work only on creating and uploading designs and they will do the rest

Cons: Lower profit potential due to competition and margins



Pros: High profit margins and access to many buyers

Cons: Fees, upfront costs, more complex setup as an integration with a 3rd party supplier is needed, you handle customer support



Pros: Like Redbubble, focus only on your designs once you have a few first sales and they will do the rest

Cons: You must generate the first few sales by yourself in order to gain Teespring “trust score” and appear in their marketplace



Pros: High profit margins and profit potential as you own the store and able to sell more of your products to the same people because there are no competition when someone is in your store

Cons: Upfront monthly cost, more complex setup, you handle customer support


Merch by Amazon

Pros: The largest eCommerce website in the world, they handle everything for you and you only focus on designs.

Cons: Hard to get accepted and they have a tier system that prevents you from uploading a lot of designs before you get some sales so it may take more time to start generating profits

Redbubble Tags – how to use tags to help increase views and sales on Redbubble


Redbubble tags are an extremely important tool to increase Redbubble sales. Without using tags properly, you are risking “leaving money on the table”. 

Tags help people find your designs, and the correct tags help the most relevant people find your designs, which will lead to higher chances of them actually buying your designs.

    • Start time:  1:08  
    • End time:   14:30

Check your understanding:

  • Tags are the way for you to tell Redbubble what your design is all about. So when people will use Redbubble search engine to look for designs your design will appear for the most relevant results. 


  • Without tags the only way for Redbubble to know how to classify your design is your title and that has very limited space and should be very focused which means it will not allow broader search terms to show your designs as well.
  • Do not use the product or type as your tag. 
  • Do not spam and use irrelevant words
  • Do not use full sentences


Key takeaways:

Redbubble tags are important to increasing your sales and success on Redbubble. Make sure you invest the time to add the correct tags for each of your designs. Otherwise less people will find your designs and therefore less chances for you to make extra sales and money.

Finding relevant good tags is not hard. You can use several of the mentioned methods. Remember that eventually, you have all the information you need right inside Redbubble.

Check your understanding:

  • Sticker packs allow you to be more competitive in smaller niches. That is because people will get more value for their money. Instead of getting one sticker they can get several stickers for the same price.


  • If you find a niche where there are almost no sticker packs when you search for stickers in that niche, it means that by adding a sticker pack you’ll get the competitive advantage. This may get you more sales than your competition that is using only single stickers.


  • When designing a sticker pack for Redbubble you should pay attention to the space between the different designs. If the designs are too close together Redbubble will connect them to one sticker instead of creating them as separate stickers.


  • It is recommended to have your design enabled on as many products as possible. In order to optimize and make your design look good on other products use the pattern option for all products that have it available. Remember that you can control the size of the design and use it to adjust it so it will look great as a pattern!


Key takeaways:

Sticker packs allow you to bring more value for money to Redbubble users. This can help give you a competitive advantage in certain niches and it can improve your chances of selling stickers in general.

Why and how to setup Google Analytics for Redbubble


Let’s say you uploaded 50 designs to your Redbubble account. Maybe some are selling some are not. Can you tell if the designs that are not selling, are not getting enough people to view them or maybe they are simply not good enough?


If you had known that a design is getting a lot of traffic but almost no one buys it, will it be a good idea to add another different design that may be more appealing to the people that find your design? Of course! 


But how will you know how many people are seeing each of your designs? How will you know if you happen to find a great niche people are looking for and you are able to get traffic for it?


The answer is Google Analytics. This tool will help you see which of your designs is getting traffic and which isn’t. Once you know and have the data you can start making smarter decisions.


In the videos below you’ll learn how to set up Google Analytics for Redbubble and how to analyze the data.

Check your understanding:

  • The earliest date you can see data for, will be the date you set up Google Analytics in Redbubble. Anything that happened before that date was not recorded in Google Analytics and therefore will not be shown.


  • Google Analytics is a separate tool than Redbubble. When you wish to see traffic data from Google Analytics you will need to go to Google Analytics dashboard.


  • In Google Analytics go to Behavior > Site Content > All Pages, this wil show you traffic data on each of your product pages.


  • You can learn which design gets more views


  • You can learn which product gets more viewers with a specific design


  • You can see how much time people spend on your product pages. More time means they are interested and exploring and checking it more thoroughly.


  • All the above can lead to several insights like: have you found a niche you can create more designs for? Do people like a specific type of product you can optimize your designs for? Should you “waste” your time creating more designs similar to designs that aren’t getting any traffic? Etc..

Key takeaways:

The more data you have, the better decisions you’ll make. You need data in order to have information that you can base your decisions upon. Google Analytics helps get more data from your Redbubble activity. Make sure to use it. 

It is also a motivation booster to see people are actually viewing and checking the designs you’ve made. 

Be sure not to fall under this quote made by Suhail Doshi –  “Most of the world will make decisions by either guessing or using their gut. They will be either lucky or wrong.”

What is the Merch by Amazon tier system and how to move up from the lower tiers


In order to provide the best experience for customers of products created in Merch by Amazon, Amazon will limit the amount of designs you could upload based on tiers of designs. The Amazon merch team will review designers who have sold the same amount of products as the number of their tier in order to decide if they can move up to a higher tier. 


Tiers for example are: 10 → 25 → 100 → 500 → ….


The video below will explain about the Merch by Amazon tier system and how to get out of the lower tiers.

    • Start time:  2:40  
    • End time:   12:21


Related links from the video:

Check your understanding:

  • Your main focus should be on getting out of the lower tiers and into the higher tiers. In order to do so you should NOT focus on profits at first.


  • As you tier up you’ll get more design room. You’ll be able to upload more of your designs on more of the available products. The more “real estate” you have on Amazon pages, the higher the chances someone will find your designs and choose to buy them. With the lower tier you are so limited that it will take a lot of time to test and find out which designs can be your best sellers.


  • Buy some of your own shirts, approach local businesses and make a design for them, ask family and friends


Key takeaways:

The lower tiers of Merch by Amazon are very limiting. It’s extremely hard to find successful designs when you can’t publish and test your designs. Therefore as long as you’re in the lower tiers of Merch by Amazon you should mainly focus on getting out of those tiers to the higher tiers where you can test many designs and start building a more stable passive income.

How to use keywords in your Merch by Amazon listing – let people find your designs on Amazon’s search results!


Why is choosing the right keywords super important for your success? 

Because when someone is looking to buy a product on Amazon they search for it in the Amazon search bar. The search results are of products that are related to the searched term.


How does Amazon know those are related products? Because those products have related keywords written in their title, brand and bullet points!

If you want people to find your designs you need to know how to use the correct keywords in your product listing.

  • Merch informer – keyword finder module. He search the general keyword and found a phrase with low competition and high enough searches per month


  • Try to use the main keyword multiple times. In the title and in the brand and/or in the bullets. 


  • Keep your text readable with good user experience. Do not stuff keywords just to have many keywords on your listing. This will have a negative effect on your listings.


  • Check some of the competitors reviews and see how people talk about the product. Use the same language as they do. 


Key takeaways:

Without adding the right keywords to your Merch listing you are wasting your time. The right people, those who are looking to buy a design like yours, will not find you without you using the right keywords in the correct places. 


Think of this tutorial and how you are supposed to build your listing – this will help you in your keyword research as well. If you should put the most important keyword in your title, so will your competition. You can learn from the best listings by looking and finding the keywords they use.
