How do I get started?

The account creation process is easy and takes about 30 seconds. Simply type in your name, email address, set your password, and you’re ready to go. From the Zazzle home page, click on “my account”, and you’ll be taken to your ‘dashboard’ where you can view all the Zazzle tools at your command. From there you simply click on ‘create a product’ and you can choose from over 250 types of products that you can create, customize and offer for sale on Zazzle.

Among the products you can design and sell on Zazzle are, men’s and women’s T-shirts, customized postage, mugs, greeting cards, pet clothing, posters, business cards, shoes, mouse pads and more.

When selling your products, Zazzle has a fixed cost for each product type and you can set the royalty percentage that you wish to earn. Your royalty is added to Zazzle’s base cost, and the product is offered for sale at the combined price. For example, for a basic, dark men’s T-shirt, Zazzle’s cost is $21.95, if you set your royalty at 10% or $2.20, the t-shirt will appear for sale at a price of $24.15. You can choose to receive your royalties by check or through There is a threshold of $25 for payouts, if your monthly earnings are less than $25, the amount will be held until the next month or whenever your account reaches the $25 threshold.

      I've been at Zazzle for about two years now and my sales grow every month. You might not get rich but the commissions are definitely nice to get!
