Merch by Amazon has been one of the best platforms for designers and it has received enthusiastic responses from content developers interested in the program. However, this is to give Amazon customers the best possible experience in purchasing branded products, Although, there is a limited system for customers and acceptance is based on invitation. Before I begin to explain how you can get your account approved, I will like to provide answers to some questions. You can now decide if to continue with the platform or to start digital marketing…lol
Do I have to comply with my content policies?
Amazon reserves the right to determine whether the content is appropriate or not. Publishing designs that violate the Amazon content policies may result in the cancellation of your ad or the blocking of your Merch account by Amazon. So, every project you submit must comply with Amazon content policies. If Amazon determines that your design violates any of our content policies, it may be removed without any prior notice.
Can I order samples before exposing the product?
If you want to launch your product, you can choose to access only direct links or public access so that customers can search and find Amazon. In either case, we recommend that you purchase samples to ensure that your design meets the specific characteristics of the product.
How can I prepare to download a work of art from a shirt?
The design must be 300pix in PNG. Although the size of the image should be 15 x 18 inches (the printable area of the product), we recommend a comfortable design in this area rather than filling all areas. For downloadable templates and other design suggestions, visit our Best Practices page.
What shipping methods can customers receive?
Amazon Merch offers the same shipping options as any other Amazon product. President’s members can send free for two days. If the client spends more than $ 25, he will receive a free delivery service. All other customers can buy ground transportation or pay more for faster transportation.
I submitted an invitation request. When do I receive an answer to my invitation?
Amazon will send you an invitation as soon as the new creators have their place. Amazon will not contact you until they have provided your company with open source code. You do not need to send a second request so they do not respond separately to the account application.
How To Get Merch By Amazon Approval In 2019
Despite that the platform is based on invitation, there are techniques in which you can get your invitation approved. Well, it is believed that the approval process only requires you to just apply and wait for either approval or decline. Obviously, that is the simple general techniques. If you have all in place, just log in to your merch by Amazon account using your Amazon login details(Email and Password) and if you don’t have an account with Amazon, you must register before you start using any of the Amazon products in which one of it is Merch by Amazon. You are not far from the invitation form after you have successfully login to the merch by Amazon dashboard. You will see the orange box with a text on it “Request for the invitation” kindly click on it and fill all the necessary information of yours. This information includes country, your name, tax information, bank details. Amazon will review this before you are either approved or declined. Here is when the decision is taken. Let us ask ourselves what are the criteria needed to get approved. The only criteria are to fill your details accurately to convince them you can drive more sales after designing. You can’t just design and sleep expecting Amazon to start bringing in people to buy what you design. You are to market what you design and get paid after sales. Some years ago, there are just a few details to fill(Organization name, Website, Additional Information) but now before you apply for the merch by Amazon account. You must have the following information intact.
1. Business contact information
2. Social Security number or other tax identification number
3. Bank account and routing numbers
Merch by Amazon only accepts a direct deposit as a means of payment. However, if you are from Nigeria or other unsupported countries it simply means you won’t be able to get approval. Well, if you have someone that you trust in any of the countries that support the bank direct deposit payment mode, you can collect their bank details including the routing number. Fill appropriately, and finally fill your social security number or tax information. Save and continue. Then you should wait patiently for your approval.
