What is Merch by Amazon?
What exactly is Merch by Amazon? Also referred to as Amazon Merch, it’s one of the fastest growing print-on-demand platforms for apparel, and it’s making some sellers some big money. Once you’re invited to sell on the platform, Amazon makes the process quite simple. Sellers only need to upload their designs, create a title and bullet points, select their blanks and colors, and price their products. Once a customer places an order, Amazon does the rest.
How Do You Make Money?
Like other POD services, there is no need for inventory or overhead with Amazon Merch. There is no actual inventory until an order is placed. Amazon sets a base cost that includes the price of the blank tee shirt and the cost for printing. Amazon takes their fee then pays you a royalty for every shirt you sell, based upon the price of your product. The higher you price your designs, the higher the royalty will be. But the way to make real money on Amazon Merch is not to sell high-priced products—it’s to do volume.
Amazon also handles all aspects of customer service and fulfillment, so you’ll never have to waste time or money processing returns, answering customer emails, or shipping boxes. You can save time (and add value to your business) by focusing on design creation and product marketing through social media and other channels outside the Amazon platform.
What are Merch Tiers?
Amazon Merch sellers are grouped into different tiers. The more shirts you sell, the higher your tier will be. As a new seller on the platform, you’ll start at Tier 10, and you can begin by uploading 10 designs. Once you sell 10 products, you’ll move up to Tier 25. Sell 25 more designs and you’ll be moved up to Tier 100, and so on. The more products you are eligible to upload, the more sales you’re likely to make, which means more revenue in your pocket.
As a seller on Amazon Merch, you’ll have access to the ecommerce giant’s ever-growing customer base, and all of your products (no matter how few or how many you sell) will be available for Prime Shipping in the US.
