@Annie Beau - since I started I've sold 11 products and had one commission so I've earned about £10 pounds in total. For me it has become less than an income stream and more of a hobby. I've got 60 designs loaded onto 4 sites (but not Amazon :() and I have had great fun creating those designs. When I get a sale it is a bonus and I get a bit of a buzz from it. In the words of the immortal Del Trotter 'this time next year .......'.
Amazon Merch seems completely swamped, every man and his dog seem to be doing it. What sites are you selling on? the admin on the FB site I referred to seems to do okay with ETSY , again print on demand using Printful, I'll PM the FB link if you like, theres load of info on the post and in the files.
I think for me, the main issue would be getting to grips with Gimp (as a standalone sentence, I am aware how weird that could sound..)

I have uploaded my designs to Redbubble, Teespring, Zazzle and Spreadshirt. All the sales I have had have been from Redbubble.

I hadn't realised ETSY also did POD. I will spend some time in the new year looking into this and make ETSY site No 5 for my designs. Thanks for the tip.

Etsy doesn't do POD, instead it's just a marketplace which you can use a POD supplier to fulfil your orders.

Many PODs integrate with etsy so it's easy to upload products but you will have to handle customer service, returns etc.

A UK based one is alloverprint.it

@bobcat2010 - Yes I agree now that I have had a look into it. Printful is the POD site that has the ability to link into sites such as Etsy Amazon etc. Etsy supplies the front end store which takes orders that printful fulfils. Or that is how I'm understanding it. My next task is to create a store on Etsy that I can link Printful into.

just looking on redbubble. How do you avoid getting into trouble with slogans being copied. For instance, there are at least three shirts on there, different artist, all selling a shirt with 'SURELY NOT EVERYBODY WAS KUNG FU FIGHTING' .. different font, one is a colour print.

I'm guessing that unless it is a registered logo then anything else can be copied.

Amazon just contacted me regarding my seller account... I wasn't aware I still had one as I last used it in 2004!
Can I believe I've actually just bought some proper lights for LEGO animations - a bit of a short sale on Amazon! :D
So Respondent have contacted me to take part in a face to face interview next week.
Excited & should take me over £100 goal for January....
I really should get back into Matched Betting - I'm pretty sure most of what I make goes to Odds Monkey as I don't bother cancelling the subscription - oops!
So as a newbie here I'm still trying to get my head round it all & which is the way to channel my time. I've signed up to Prolific & Resondent thanks to @Jon
I've earned a few 3.00 on Prolific so far & waiting on surveys to come back from Respondent that I've applied for, so fingers crossed.
I have a few items listed on Ebay which I hope I will put to my 1st try at MB, scares me to be honest.
