What are the subscription options?
We have a Freemium and a Premium subscription. The first being free, while the second requires a monthly subscription fee that will give you access to preferential production prices, basically a saving of £1 per item – makes sense if you are selling more than 20 items a month. Premium subscribers also get better pricing on bulk printing.
Is the Freemium service really free?
Yes, you only pay for the production cost of the product you sell. Using the site and listing products is completely free. Cost + Your mark-up = Your Retail Price. We pay you your mark-up every month directly into your PayPal account. We don’t make any money until you do.
How long is the cancellation period?
You can cancel your subscription at any time.
