Deleting account with earnings
Posted: Saturday, August 10, 2019 12:59:34 PM
Hello, cannot find what happens to earnings if I delete my account. The help page only says send email to support and we will delete it. For example if I have 2.40 USD there then I cannot request a paypal payment. Will my earnings be just confiscated?

I can't find any documentation onsite regarding this kind of thing.

All I could find was that you can request a payout below the minimum threshhold but there is service charge fee of $2.50 which will cancel out that small amount they owe you.

Sorry to tell you Sad

BTW. I found that in my profile under Earnings>Payment settings in the fine print below where you would request a payment.

Sad to see such lovely designs go. Sad

Remember you can't delete a store. You must remove all your products by deleting them and set your store to "private".

Thank you! I will wait and give it a chance until Christmas, then see Smile Because 1 sale in half-year is not worth headache about running a store here...

With millions of products on Zazzle alone plus countless other e-shopping options for custom products, six months isn't long to wait. You're not loosing anything by just letting your store sit but if you close it or delete your work so far, then you are losing any chance at all of sales.
You have talent, I always admire hand-drawn work. Maybe try expanding the product selection for your designs. I love this one, for example

and could see it doing well on home decor items like pillows and pillow cases and duvet covers... [Edited to add - custom fabric!] Also maybe work on your descriptions (they're pretty brief) and tags.

Thank you for nice words about my work Smile
But I started to think about this when recently learned about 2 USD/month fees for non-contributing accounts when you don't publish new products. If I just let my store sit I will never see any earnings, zazzle will eat them.

'Contributing' is pretty easy.... all you have to do is make a single product in a 15 month period... that's not even one per year.

In my experience 6 month is the average for a design to see any action, so you give up, just about at the time when your designs start to be seen a little more often, provided you did your due diligent with proper descriptions, tags and sharing on social media.

And while that non-contributing fee sounds glooming it really isn't. Since contributing a product every 15 month is no effort. It's not a new design, just a new product. Even if you just use zazzle as a dumping ground for an eventually semi passive income, a handful of designs every few months is at the very least a pleasant past time with eventually benefits.

And once you reached a threshold of products the income will increase, you'll see the occasional repeat seller, which appears in your stats on a regular basis. At least this is my experience with every PoD I have reached that threshold, even if it is just $5 every other month because I don't put any effort whether with uploading new products or sharing on social media.
