    In order to ensure customer orders are shipped on time, we have reduced availability of some t-shirt sizes and colors. During this time, these shirts will show as “Currently Unavailable” on the product page.

    Beginning November 15, 2016, Merch by Amazon will keep live those t-shirt designs that have received at least one order within the first 60 days of being published. Returned orders will not apply to this count. After the first sale, the design will no longer be removed as a result of this policy. All other designs will be removed, allowing you to publish new designs that have a greater chance of selling. For more information, please check out our FAQ.

By default new t-shirts for both American Apparel and Anvil t-shirts will be created with Men’s and Women’s fits, but you can select Youth fits in step two of the production creation flow. Please note, you cannot edit fits once a design is live.

    Over the past several months, we have been working diligently to improve Merch by Amazon and expand capacity to fulfill the demand that your great content is generating. We are pleased to announce that we have increased our capacity by 10x since launch and are now able to make several positive changes to the program. First, we have begun upgrading content creators to the next tier of t-shirts they can upload based on sales and quality of their products. Please review our FAQs Merch by Amazon takes intellectual property very seriously. Please review our FAQs and Content Policy to make sure that all of your designs comply with our policies. In addition, we have changed our SLA for printing from 14 days to 5 to 7 days. Finally, we have begun adding new content creators from those on the program waitlist.
    In addition, due to the changing costs of printing, fulfillment, transportation, and customer service, we will be adjusting the Amazon costs of Merch by Amazon t-shirts by 15% to $9.31 from $8.10. To give you time to plan for these fee updates, this change will take effect for sales of all new and existing t-shirts beginning on March 1, 2016. We plan to evaluate costs on a yearly basis, so expect this price to remain consistent until we re-evaluate in January 2017. To find out more please visit our royalty calculation page. Thank you for your continued support of Merch by Amazon.

  1. I will use this comment to write to you 🙂
    As a 31 years old guy, willing to make my dreams come true I must admit and say that reading all the materials I found on your web site and materials i bought (Merch By Amazon Blueprint from A to Z) still can’t let me believe that you gave such a chance to ordinary people to achieve their goals and make their dreams come true. Passive income is something that every enterprenour dreams off, so I just can say: Guys, you rock 🙂
    I check my email everyday, expecting your answer and also checking on your website (in the blueprint it was said that my aplication is aproved if there is no aplication request when we sign in) and it always gives me aplication request 🙂
    Even if you do not approve my aplication I must say your idea is God’s gift, becouse it can make people’s lifes rock. Whoever came up with this idea, kiss him for me 🙂 🙂
    Regards Amazon.
