OK, I get your point about markups - fair enough. I do actually think Billabong T-shirts are better quality than any blank I've ever seen, though, and that their high prices are a true reflection of quality, massively marked up from cost though they may be.

Just in case anyone thinks that 10% (or 17% as an affiliate) is still all you can get...

You can set your own royalty rate - as high as 99% if you like. That will, of course, raise the price of a low-cost tee into the thousands of dollars, but hey, if you can sell it, go for it. Their website goes into this in more detail, of course.

This can be done both on a global basis or on a per-product basis; each product can be set with its own royalty rate. And yes, you still get and additional 7% for affiliate stuff.

Hope this helps!

Talking Re: You get only 10%?!

I can sign up as an affiliate and get 17%.
I dont need to spend thousands on equipment. I dont need to buy and store any inventory. If a shirt gets ruined it's not my problem. I dont have to ship the shirt or package it for that matter. I dont have to worry about sales tax. I dont have to worry about my printer breaking or about the printer opperator not showing up for work. I dont have payroll taxes. I can go on vacation and still sell my goods. I dont need to rent space or give up part of my home for my business.
I don't have to collect money and pay PayPal or for a credit card transaction. I dont have to design a website or pay to have one designed. I dont have to pay for finance charges for my equipment.
If I sell a Tee for $20.00 my margin is $3.40 not too bad for the amount of work I do and the amount of work I don't do
Think I might buy a shirt from them to see their quality and maybe set up an account

If I am missing something please let me know

It may cost billabong .80c for a shirt to be Manufactured, But what about the cost of running a business on that scale.

I know for a fact some of their Pro snowboarders are making serious bank just to wear that stuff , and pose for pictures.

All of the costs should be factored into that shirt. Ads, promotions, staff, office paper, pro snowboarder jerks {Hahah sorry Drew!} and models would all factor in.
It is ridiculous to assume that they are making 59.20$ AU selling that shirt in Australia

Once all the dust is settled, yeah they are making Tons of money im sure, but not becasue they "Only pay .80c a shirt"

My two pinnies

...don't forget the electricity to run your equipment, too!

And you can get more than 17%, that's actually a minimum for an affiliate - assuming that you actually drove in the sale of one of your designs, of course. Your royalty can be set higher than the default 10%, as I mention. You can also make 7% off of someone else's design as an affiliate (and they from yours, of course!)

I'd actually encourage you to buy a shirt that you've designed on their web site. That way you get to see how easy (or hard) it is to do the designing too - one point that I've heard lots of people complain about. And on which I disagree, by the way. I'm quite happy with Zazzle, all around...

I admit it - it was me! Just wanted to make sure that the record was set straight, in case anyone wandered in here and thought that this outdated info was correct.

Yes, Zazzle is my favorite, and yes, I'm probably biased!

Now your royalty can be between 10-99% and the user interface is improving all the time. I'm really beginning to like Zazzle. The volume bonus is good also

Just out of curiosity - if 10% is too little, how much do designers/artists feel would be a decent percentage?

30% to 40% is what most artists expect to earn in the real world of art and design. Granted T-shirts are a lower dollar item but you sell far more of them than you would printed canvas. So the minimum I would be willing to accept on my art for a T-shirt would be %20
