Before we close down for two weeks, I really wish you would rethink this. I don't like it. On so many levels. The biggest one may be the pitting of two groups of designers, the Primary Content people vs. the Secondary Content people, against each other. That's just cruel.

I don't like the forced royalty share for the addition of what may indeed be Free images, eventually Free font pairings I reckon, and possible downright stolen content. I don't like how easy it is to add a new Secondary Content background that may not even be visible to the customer because it slides in behind an existing background. Even if the customer is aware and wants to do the right thing, it's tough to figure out how to remove the dang Secondary Content background. I don't like how the Primary Content person becomes a footnote once the Secondary Content is added, and then they share the "Designed By" or "This product contains artwork by" attribution.

There's a lot that makes me uneasy about all of it. I am SO glad I did not apply to be a Create Tool Designer which would have in turn made me a now Secondary Content provider in the Marketplace Design Tool, shaving pennies off my fellow designer's products, with them not having the ability to say yes or no to it, if their posted product allows customization. All of mine do. Zazzle encouraged us to post products for sale that way, because customers love going in and tweaking. But now it's backfiring.

Dear Zazzle, you guys know how much I adore you. Please take the holiday break to ponder this. I just... I think it's not a good business model based on your history of supporting and uplifting your artists and designers. Now you have created, pardon the pun, two classes in the designer community. Those who take a share of the profit of others and those who don't. It makes me quite sad.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all and to all, a good night.

Hi mothersdaisy, is this still an issue for you? I cannot see any discrepancy here currently Smile


Hi Padie - all's well at my end now - it was slow over the weekend but seems to have sorted itself now.

Thanks Roses
