Has anyone tried to do collections? If you don't know what this is read the last zazzle post on the blog and then let me know what you think?Idea

Please note, the text after the & in the string is a small letter l(L).
Did one collection, just to try it out. I think useful for your own site, and links elsewhere. Have not placed it anywhere yet.
I included the long string so you all can see the construction of the link.

I'm thinking these links don't work from within Zazzle - that let to a wrapping paper page.

that's really cool, it said "This is a collection of products, curated by FalconsEye" based upon your ref id!

it also didn't work for meCrying

I was trying to figure it out last night after Zazzle announced it on Facebook, but I can't make it work or figure out what I'm supposed to be doing. Any link I tried to make just forwarded me to the Zazzle homepage.

Seems some folks are having issues with this new feature - we are taking a look at it right now.

Quick Question for the folks that are having issues. If you copy the link and paste it into the URL, instead of click the link, does the function work?

Thanks,

Elizabeth P.

Elizabeth,

It worked for me (copy and paste).

But,

When I clicked on one of the products in the collection, it took me to the product page, and when I tried to use the browser's BACK button to go back to the collection, it did not go to the collection page. Shocked

Thanks,
HC

Right now, copy and pasting works. Last night, it didn't seem to work.

Big problem is that if you click on an item in the collection so you can look at it or buy it, you cannot get back to the collection again - it disappears.

They appear very disposable.

I have one linked from Pinterest and it does work by clicking through on the link from there. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/407364728765757504/

Do these collections work for us as a way to earn referrals? What are the benefits of these for us zazzlers?

You can collect matching items of your store and post them for your clients. You can promote such collections on your blog or send the links via email to your friends or workmates.
These are promotion links but promotions always benefit zazzlers more than affiliates. Grin

A nice feature if they manage to get the browser's back button function to work with it!

it works until you copy and paste it to share it with others
I made a few of these and they look amazing I can't share then though
because once the collection is made it changes the html code

Just a heads up. I've read elsewhere the collections posted on Pinterest are coming up with an error code or going to Z's home page.

You may want to check your collections pins.

You used to have to go in and edit the link in Pinterest and put in the original one.
This does not work any more, wonder why?

It works if you have the rf ID in it. The link in your pin doesnt have rf=... and goes to z main page. If you add the rf= code into the link then it works (for me at least).

At first, when i tried collections, the link worked fine from Pinterest, I mean, clicking on the image or the button opened a new tab showing the collection, but now it doesn´t work, you have to copy the link and paste it, otherwise it will take it to Zazzle´s front page...
I have double checked the looong links and they are as the blog post says... I guess it´s an experimental feature and it still is a work in progress...

I think Pinterest is perhaps now banning these collection links as some kind of indirect referral (I saw a message like that when one of mine didn't work). My collection links on Pinterest worked beautifully at first, now they all just take me to Zazzle's main page. Very frustrating.

The links still appear to work in FB - just not in Pinterest. Perhaps they were being abused somehow? Maybe Zazzle and Pinterest can work this out between them?
