Default Re: Spreadshirt did a horrible thing on its marketplace

I consistently sell stuff on Redbubble and CafePress.

I can't stand CafePress, though, because their margins are PITIFUL. 5% or less usually. Also, they are in the habit of randomly creating a new store, selling your stuff in it, and giving you an even SMALLER margin.

Redbubble's interface update means that if you find a design you like on a t-shirt, you can't easily get to "Women's Tanks" or "Acrylic Block" with the same image. It used to be very intuitive to find all other products with a given image. I'm guessing sales are being lost to customers thinking "oh, too bad, it only comes on guy's tees".

My experience with SpreadShirt is that nothing at all ever, ever sells. 10-15 sales a month on RB and CP, ZERO on SpreadShirt. I even tried ads on FB and AdWords. Zero traffic on Spreadshirt. I don't know what the problem is there.

I'm hoping you find something better, and I'm likely to follow your lead if you do! TeeSpring, perhaps?

Take care!
