How Do They Work
Both Teespring and ViralStyle, work in very similar ways and that is that they both allow you to easily create and sell customised products such as T-shirts Online. Once you have signed up with the platforms (which only takes minutes), you can choose what types of products you wish to sell. Although they do allow you to sell T-Shirts, you aren’t restricted to just selling T-Shirts and there are several other products you can choose too.
So, once you have successfully signed up with the platform, you can then upload your artwork and designs. These designs and artwork will then be listed on the platform for sale. The beauty of this, is that is allows you to sell products Online without even having to set up an Online store of your own. This also means that you do not have to worry about setting up a Payment Gateway of your own or even worry about producing the products yourself.
Whenever a customer buys a T-Shirt with your design or artwork on it, TeeSpring or ViralStyle will print your design or artwork onto a T-Shirt and will also then ship the T-Shirt out to the customer, without you having to do anything! This process is commonly known as ‘Print-On-Demand’ and it means that you can make money Online from home, with very little effort on your part.
Everytime one of your designs is sold on a T-Shirt, TeeSpring will collect the payment from the customer. So, if the T-Shirt costs £24.99, TeeSpring will collect £24.99 from the customer and deal with the payment itself. TeeSpring will then deduct the cost of the T-Shirt and shipping etc and will then pay you the creator your profit, which could be around £10-£14. As you can see, receiving a commission from the sales of your designs, means you can actually earn money, without having to outlay any money yourself.
If you are totally new to designing artwork, then this may seem a little overwhelming but even if you are not artistic yourself, don’t let this put you off. Using a platform such as Fiverr, will allow you to outsource the design process and you can hire a Graphic Designer to design the T-Shirts for you. Take a look at Fiverr and see how cheap it is to hire the services of a Graphic Designer.
