Amazons new advertising platform “Merch by Amazon” is the retailing giants move into the mobile gaming market. With the success of companies like TeeSprings and CafePress, Amazon has cleverly targeted the t-shirt niche by not only offering its customers a print-on-demand service, but allowing sellers to get paid per t-shirt. So, if you sell one t-shirt you get paid… no minimum number of tees to sell before you get your commission.
Who Can Use Merch By Amazon?
Predominately aimed at gaming app developers, Merch by Amazon is not just limited to them. Anyone can set up an account, upload their designs and Amazon will produce, sell and ship your product.
Ready Made Templates
Amazon also provides ready made templates that you can download and use with either Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator or the free Gimp tool. The templates are set by default to the maximum required size that your t-shirt design must fall within.
Fall within 4500 pixels x 5400 pixels with 300 dpi and your saved image must be in a transparent png format. NOT jpg
