Selling on Merch by Amazon doesn’t require any specific set of tools, but there are a number of Merch by Amazon resources and tools out there. Some are specifically designed for Merch by Amazon, while others are more general tools that be used on Amazon’s print-on-demand platform. The number of tools is nowhere close to what’s available for selling on Amazon Seller Central (FBA), though the number is sure to grow as the Merch platform gains wider adoption.
To help our members, and all Merch sellers, we’ve put together a list of Merch by Amazon resources and tools below. Each includes a brief summary. This isn’t a final list, as we’re sure we missed some great existing tools, and many more tools are likely to come. Leave a comment below if you have an addition!
