Can someone explain Zazzle to me?
Do I have to have the products on hand to sell? I have an idea for greeting cards and I was wondering how does the whole Zazzle thing works?
I love Zazzle.
No you just upload your design, you don't have the product on hand.
They make it easy to open a store and make products. However, the key is self promotion otherwise it is likely to get lost in the millions of products they have.
You also can promote other items and get a 15% cut. It is best to find a niche there and go for it.
There are some people who have several thousand products for sale and are doing very well from it. There are some excellent hubs and lenses on Squidoo about it. Greek Geek has made some that were very useful to me.
It can be a bit daunting at first, but when you make your first sale, you'll be hooked.
Good luck with it.
Blond Logic is right, once you start making sales on Zazzle you'll become hooked. In December I made more with Zazzle than with my AdSense from writing hubs. Now, in February it is turning out again that I'm earning more with Zazzle. It's because it's tougher now to earn money with hubs than it was when I first started with HubPages. All the Google algorithm changes have a lot to do with it. HubPages has had to make a lot of tough changes to please Google.
To answer your first question, no, you don't need any of your own products to sell on Zazzle, just good designs that people want. I think you should get your ideas on some products and promote them. Regarding your second question, I and many others have written hubs about Zazzle and how it works. Just do a search at the top of the page. Best wishes on your ideas.

Are we allowed to promote Zazzle products in our hubs?I believe at one time HubPages allowed writers to promote Zazzle products, or am I thinking of another writing platform?

Authoring Hubs is about sharing and spreading ideas. Most of what we do is word-based, and a capsule to show off related Zazzle stuff would be an eye-catching way to allow readers interested in those ideas to buy products which celebrate them, such as relevant designs, graphics, statements,...

I think it would be so good if we can add the zazzle products to our hubs via Zazzle Capsule just like We do it for Amazon. It will help us improve traffic and of course earnings.

Apparently all hubs that promote MLM will be unpublished as they are found. It's okay to review the PRODUCT. Here are the actual quotes:"Hubs that promote the products sold by a well-known MLMs are permitted, but Hubs that promote the use of MLMs are no longer allowed.""... hubs...

While placing ads on hubs, such as Amazon and eBay, how many ads can we choose?I have seen many hubs having more than two ads, whereas when I choose I have options only upto 2, both for Amazon and eBay.
