5 Tips To Get Started On Zazzle

What is Zazzle And How Can I Profit From It?

Zazzle is a product on demand website, that allows artists, designers, and photographers to upload their creations and place them upon different types of products, ranging from household goods to clothing, as well as stamps, invitations, mugs and more. Consumers can then place an order with Zazzle to receive a product with your design, upon which the designer receives a commission, while Zazzle is responsible for the creation of the product, shipping, and if necessary returns. It is an often overlooked, but potentially profitable passive income opportunity, that I explore on this blog in greater detail from time to time.

How Do I Get Started?

In order to get started making money with Zazzle, you will need to do a few things. I am here to guide you through
the first steps of setting up your inventory, and get noticed


1. Create your all-in-one account.
That is right, Zazzle is an all-in-one setup, where you can sign up as a designer, and are automatically signed
up as an affiliate, so you can start making money from the beginning via both avenues.
2. Set up a store
Zazzle is divided into individual stores. You will have to decide upon which type of store you want to create. I suggest
for you to stick with a small niche, considering that you can open as many stores as you would like for free. So in order to  create and keep a more targeted audience, you should narrow each store down to certain themes or niches.

3. Create a website
Setting up a website is not as hard as it might seem at first. I write about how to create a website right here to help you with this process.
4. Create a large inventory.
Having a large selection of inventory sets you up for success, and updating it regularly makes your customer come
back often. Unless you have a store geared toward a season, you should take advantages of the different times of the year to create appropriate items.
5. Use social media.
Building and utilizing social media is an important part of creating online success, that does not change with being
a part of the Zazzle website. You have to drive traffic toward your stores in order to make sales.

5 Reasons Why You Should Consider Joining The Zazzle Affiliate Marketing Program


  1. You have made my day! I can’t believe I found this post. I was only thinking the other day, how can I use my artistic skills to create an income and by the looks of it Dazzle is the way to go. I know you mention, that if you are a designer you are signed up to be an affiliate but do you have to pay for this privilege?

      Hi Amberlee, no there are no fees involved for the designer, or the affiliate. Affiliate get a 15 % flat fee, while the designers set their own commission percentige, but you can also use your affiliate link to promote your own products, which means you get double commission. Good luck on your journey!

  2. This is great, Claudia. Thank you. I’ve got a Zazzle store set up but have not given it anywhere need the attention it needs. I should look into the affiliate side of it, too.
    Keep up the great work on your site. I LOVE the name of it!
    Be well,

      thank you, Kevin. If you have any questions with the Zazzle affiliate program, let me know. Blessings!

  3. Social is definitely important – especially for products that are quirky and strange. I think Twitter’s been my best promotional tool so far. I’m working on getting started with Instagram, too, but that is such a time and labor-intensive site that I’m slacking horribly on it. Cheers and thanks for the guide!

      I am about to publish a review on a Twitter management tool I use, maybe you find it helpful. Stay tuned!

  4. Zazzle looks interesting. Setting up an account and a store should be fairly easy. WordPress is a great place to build your own website. I’ve already done it a few times. Once you get started and finish the website, you can promote it through social media networks. I agree the having a large inventory will attract more customers and keep them coming back. You can drive traffic in other ways once you’re up and running. Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to help accomplish this!
