Also, the area you need to look at to see sales (pending or otherwise) is under:

EARNINGS, then on the lefthand side click on ROYALTY HISTORY. Don't look at the balance, nothing will show up there until later. (It has to clear first for that)

I think will take you to what I am referring to.

As others have said, Zazzle is definitely not a scam in any sense of the word. I began here back in 2009 (I believe it was late October) and received my 1st check from Zazzle in January of 2010. It wasn't much, but it grew from there but starting before the holiday season made it possible for me to get some sales with a lower product count that first year. It took a LOT of designs before I started seeing regular sales, and the more designs I put up, the more sales. I believe I started seeing a steady stream when I broke 2,000-3,000 products for sale. Your shop is still extremely tiny. (Not an insult I promise you) But it is going to take a lot more items in your store before you see a lot of sales if any. Have patience and stick with it.

Also, click-throughs, likes, and shares mean next to nothing. I have had days where I had well over 1,000 linkovers into Zazzle and sold next to nothing and then had days where I had around 100 linkovers and sold tons. The biggest flow of actual customers seem to come from other people referring and/or the marketplace. And to get sales from either, you have to have a LOT more products.

Zazzle is not a get rich quick thing. It takes a lot of time and effort and if you can stick with it, it does eventually pay off. Many of us have even stopped working our other "jobs", but it took time to get to that point. (years and thousands of products made) Don't worry about where you are now. If you have the patience Zazzle will be worth it. But if you can't make it a month without being disgruntled, it is going to be very difficult to find success. So, remind yourself to not worry about the sales. Create, enjoy it, keep adding, add more each and every day and promote, but don't focus on the amount of effort you are putting in because that work won't pay off immediately.

Your blog is beautiful by the way!

I'm not able to see your links, I think you linked from the your account because it just takes me to my own store. Could you please re-link so I can get them in?
