Ship via USPS First Class instead of Priority and you'll save yourself $3 per shirt....

Re: Traffic From Facebook but No Sales? What's your Conversion Rates?

I think that's a valid point. I would like to know what websites are successful selling t-shirts for more than say $30 that are what I'll call "boutique" sellers (meaning not national brands, well-known designers, or venture funded startups).

18 months ago the price of their shirts was typically $18 for an American Apparel in over a dozen colors.

They have sense raised their prices to $22.

I have looked at other T-Shirt sellers on etsy and it seems once you go above $20, sales just drop off a cliff even though the designs are excellent.

Bottom line is I don't think there's a whole lot of people who are willing to buy an expensive t-shirt online, at least not from a well know designer.

I myself can't see buying a "t-shirt" for $34. It's a t-shirt after all.
Could be because it was Etsy. People don't want to spend a lot on shirts from Etsy maybe.

Yeah, I'm surprised they raised their prices so much. I check to see how they're doing every couple of months and their prices 3 months ago were $18 plus the shipping.

I guess they've built up a clientele that will pay more. 18 to 22 dollars is quite a jump in price but if you can get away with it more power to you!

What do you feel prices for simple designs like that on an American Apparel 2001 t-shirt delivered should be: https://kaymaxx.com/products/short-s...nt=25844534345

Thanks, appreciate any help.

I haven't looked into extensively but blanks are cheaper when you buy bulk. I'm starting with a POD vendor because I don't want to have 100 shorts that may never sell.
Tho I'll be buying a small heat press next week and see how it goes.

That's a hell of profit margin...how can you do 56 shirts for $50. That's 89 cents a shirt....

It looks like many vendors thinking on their prices and all kind of rates goes: if you can live without this, please do. And I think I will adopt exactly the same approach if only to save myself from having to worry about what may come to be essentially nothing.
That's about what you get after you sell a tshirt or hoodie after there cut. If i still a shirt for $25 I'm making $25.00 not $4.50 and so on. People get into tshirts thinking oh its a get rich business. Cause they see these bs ads. Well they don't realize that the ones that are making big profits own there equipment and print there selves.

Well, haha, I was talking about THIS site, they misquoted their own link there but that's perhaps it was my first post and they are very hard on new posters. Overall I was just being sarcastic as there seem to be a lot of all kind of issues here lately. Thanks.
