Hey there, I have not made any sales this month. I am trying to not let it get to me.

I can not tell a lie, I have not made a single sale this month. I have been on this site for 8 years, so don't, anyone be depressed. It happens to all of us. Even the ones, who promote night and day. I hope that Zazzle finds a way to promote more of us, soon.


Well on the bright side... there is nowhere to go but up... Grin

I've been three days with nothing. This month is no where near as good as last month so far.

You have very nice leggings, are you on Pinterest? Leggings do well on Pinterest.

Well, I have a Pinterest account, and a board with some stuff on it, but I'm honestly better off letting someone else promote my work.

Leggings don't sell for me, so I'm not planning on making more. To be honest, I have maybe a handful of items that get an occasional repeat sale, and the rest is filler. My most recently created repeat seller is a product I started offering in 2016. I keep trying new things, but most never sell, and those that do seem to be "one and done". Whatever changed here, it hasn't helped me find success.

Someone turned off my store! I was doing okay(for me), but now it's just crickets. I find it strange how my sales never seem to trickle off slowly they just come to a screeching halt!

Every sell now help me with ranking. Waiting to see what happens at xmass.

Last month I made more sales than usual but this month, I've only made 2. Its a bummer but its the way it goes some months. Hoping everyone sees more sales by the end of the monthRoses

Same here only different. June was unusually slow. July has been much better

With the huge heat wave in most of the U.S., I was hoping everyone stayed indoors if they had air conditioning and shopped. Those folks have only one more day to go before the country cools down. What are they waiting for?!

I was thinking the same but nope

I have only made two small sales since June, and zero of those are this month. I am trying not to get discouraged.

Maybe just take a break for a while. sometimes I get sales in the places I am not paying attention to... Like when I am working on my eBay I get sales at Zazzle and vice versa. Wish that worked with Redbubble and ArtPal!

I feel you on this! My good months are usually September through February or sometimes March, but I’ve always had decent trickle between April and August. But this year? Well, my account was hacked and someone tried to send my earnings to their PayPal account. It was about a month-long headache getting that sorted (but Zazzle was really great about working with me, and all funds were recovered).

Then sales just….ceased. Like, nothing this year. I sold one postcard a few weeks ago, putting me at about 9 cents. LOL

I feel like my store has been turned off too, but I’m trying not to worry until September hits so I can see if I get my usual business. I have been wanting to get a bunch of new stuff out there anyway, so I guess I’ll just keep working on stuff while I wait.

I’d appreciate thoughts, prayers, finger crossing, etc, though. LOL I’m getting married next year, and I’d like to get my usual Fall earnings this year so I can purchase party stuff through Zazzle! Smile Smile

How on earth did that even happen?! I had no idea it was possible.

No idea. I got a notification of an email change, and when I went to log in, I had to change my password, and lo and behold, there was a new email address in the PayPal space. The worst part is that it wouldn't go away. A Zazzle tech would remove it, but it would pop right back up. I don't usually use PayPal, but I went ahead and put my PP address in there. Had to do it a couple of times for it to "stick".

It was weird and extremely stressful. I don't know if something happened there that has impacted my visibility/sales, but I'm hoping it'll turn around soon. Smile

I haven't dealt with PayPal in couple years, but the last time I did, they were very helpful. I'm just wondering if you could get a new PP account and replace the one you're currently using with your new one just to be on the safe side.

Months almost done. Have 2 or 3 sells on Z and one on another POD.

Candy Jar
1 or 2 Plastic Tumbler (Z had a discount I think)

The reason for say 2 or 3. Is that I had two orders for the same product by the same person. So I'm not sure if its a his/her matching pair.

For some reason this question doesnt bother me as much as how much are you makeing. Is it for promoting, encouraging to other designers, or a bit of pride for disclosure.



As for risk of theft I consider it small. Its more profitably to follow and go the affiliate route if the person (myself) has a a history of adding. 60 ish designs and 1900 products in a similar style and niche over since Dec 2018 (about 9 months).

My niche is life in nature that I see as I walk and research of stuff I hope to see if given the chance.

Currently in the planning phase to replace the pattern category with Wayerfar Kitchen. Mostly plants, cooking herbs and spices. Thought about calling it an Apothecary but I rather focus on the flavour of life and not as much as folk remedies.

Thinking the cartoon category is on the chopping block next as its performance is poor.

Woohoo! Smile

I sold four of a product yesterday, so I just got in a sale for July. I'm hoping this means my usual last-half-of-the-year sales are going to start rolling in! LOL

Officially 'skunked' for the entire month of July. Now we head into August, which is historically my worst month of the year.

Fell short of VB3 this month. Still got slightly more than 2/3rds of the way there, though, which is still good.
Thanks nIFTTTy Roses
