Sell on Amazon
This page on Amazon lists categories in which a seller can sell various things on Amazon without any special permission, including about 20 different categories of products. It also lists the requirements on those categories which do have special requirements for selling them on Amazon.
Approval is not required to sell these products. Sellers may be required to meet special requirements in order to list some products. Both Individual and Professional Sellers can offer products in these categories, except where noted.
However, there seems to be about a $40 a month fee plus other selling fees for selling on Amazon in this way. Haven’t checked all of that yet, but it certainly reaches a vast audience of potential customers.
Also on Amazon – there are two categories of note to artists and crafters who create handmade products. One of these categories is listed as this, but only available for collectibles and with approval from Amazon for Professional Sellers only. It is about halfway down the list.
Paintings, Drawings, Mixed Media (Two-Dimensional), Limited Edition Prints and Photographs
Then there is another category called –
Handmade and Hand-altered Products
which takes a jump over to this page for the requirements –
To be approved, all of your products must meet our definition of handmade, listed below in our FAQ. Applications are reviewed by our team within 48 hours.
In the video on this page, it says there is not a monthly fee for having handmade items on this site, but I didn’t find where the fees are when items sell, yet.
Below you will find the required resolutions for our alternative products. To achieve these exact dimensions you may need to crop your original high-resolution file. However, do not increase the size by resampling in a photo edition program, as this will distort the quality of your work.

THE MOST POPULAR PRINT ON DEMAND SHOPIFY APPS REVIEWED
Feb 22, 2017
GearLaunch easily wins the competition for best print on demand partner for Shopify. Best service, quality, consistent fast delivery… no one comes close to GearLaunch. Check out the video as I walk through the installation method to make the integration. Don’t worry, it’s super easy and no technical skill is required whatsoever.
For the most part, Shopify T-shirt fulfillment apps all work the same way, with minor nuances and variations.
After integrating the app and building out some designs, your POD app will sync the designs to your store. When a customer purchases a t-shirt, the order is sent directly to your POD supplier where they print and ship the shirt to your customer.
This all happens automatically behind the scenes without any manual order processing. This allows you to focus on higher value responsibilities like marketing your store to increase traffic, improving conversion rate, increasing average order size, and raising customer lifetime value.
Teelaunch has more competitive margins, so you make more money on each sale. This allows you to spend more on marketing, and invest more back into your business to grow faster.
Here is a quick breakdown of margins across a few of Teelaunch’s products:
Printful + Shopify
Lists the things they offer for print on demand with your designs and they are shipped out of several locations in the US and Europe to arrive to the customers faster (within 3 days mostly.)
White label service: We don’t include any Printful branding when we ship your orders. You’re the star of the show, and we make sure your brand is front and centre with our branding tools, like a free sticker of your logo on every order.
Discounted samples: Order samples of your products for 20% off and free shipping worldwide! See exactly what your customers are getting.
Your end price will depend on what you and your customers think is fair, but we recommend a minimum profit margin of 30%.
Say you’re selling a Gildan 64000 unisex softstyle t-shirt. Your price is $18.00. Our price is $8.95. Subtract our price from yours and you get a profit of $9.05.
