Transferring designs
Posted: Wednesday, November 22, 2017 11:16:18 AM
Hi Designers,

As a lot of you have already noticed, we are beta testing a new functionality on the site that allows users the ability to transfer designs to other products. We’ve had the ability for quite some time to ‘style switch’ within a product like T-shirts and phone cases. But now we’ve broadened its use so designs can be transferred across completely different product lines onto any blank product available on the Create Your Own page.

To try out this new functionality, click on the ‘Transfer this design’ link in the section of the product page entitled ‘About This Design.’

It will then take you to the page where you can choose what product you would like to put the design on.

Here is some further information that will better help you navigate transferring a design:

• The royalty rate for the new product is taken from the original PID.

• The sale for any transferred design will show up as a sale for the original product. (We’re hoping to update this in the future to reflect the product the design was transferred to.)

• Transferred products cannot be published for sale by customers.

• Transferred products are private and only visible to the customer who initiated the transfer.

• Designs transferred to similar products as they originated on will have the best results. Designs transferred to products that are not similar to the original product’s size and aspect ratio will face challenges.

• A designer has the ability to disable/opt-out of this feature at any time in the Advanced Settings section of their store.

Keep in mind that this is a beta test so we’re still tweaking it. We’ll send you an update when we have more info to share.

Happy Designing!

Hello Designers,

Thank you so much for all your comments and feedback for this Beta test, they were really helpful! We received a lot of great feedback from designers and users alike and it’s been amazing to see how excited a lot of you guys were about this, and it’s potential in the future.

For the time being, we have now turned this off so that we can work on better improving certain aspects of the feature as well as adding some of the most requested enhancements. We will update you all again once we get closer to launching round 2.

Thanks again and Happy 1st of December!

Hi Designers!

We really appreciated all the feedback and comments you provided during the 1st round of beta testing for design transfer. Our team has worked hard to help put this together, and we are now ready to launch round 2 in the next upcoming days!

Please note that this feature is still in beta and is in A/B testing, meaning not everyone will see it. But we're still hoping you will continue to provide us with any feedback here if you see it!

Here are some changes we made between the 1st version and 2nd version:

1. Royalty rate for the destination product is now taken from a designers default royalty rate unless the design is being transferred to a fixed royalty rate product like Zazzle heart products in which case it will use the fixed rate.
2. We’ve updated the product page to show the details for the designer that created the design
3. We’ve updated the product page to show a Customize/Personalize button instead of the Add Image/Text buttons that used to exist in the 1st version
4. We’ve excluded products from that design transfer search results that are either OOS or don’t work well with this feature
5. Updated Earnings reports to call out sales that used this feature as well as the product type the design was transferred to

We’re excited to hear what you have to say! And thanks again for all your help.
