It’s crazy how this year is just flying by. We just entered Q4, also known as the most exciting time of the year for any ecommerce business, including print on demand.

Am I ready?

I’m not sure. To be honest my focus has been largely elsewhere lately, and that’s why this print on demand income report is probably also the first one representing a month during which I didn’t put any work into my print on demand business.

Let’s check the results of that.

Merch by Amazon

Overview of my sales on Merch by Amazon in September 2020

Sales are quite a bit lower compared to last month, but I still made some solid money from Merch by Amazon with my existing portfolio. 

In September I reached a total of 128 sales on Merch by Amazon. This corresponds to a decrease of -26 % compared to the previous month, which reached 172 sales.

Those sales together generated roughly 432,74 € in royalties. This corresponds to a decrease of -13 % compared to the previous month, which reached 496,51 € in royalties.

I’m currently Tier 1000 with 1000 slots filled, divided into 880 products on the German marketplace, 61 on the US marketplace, and 59 on the UK marketplace.

Unfortunately, returns are currently up in Germany again, as Amazon seems to have some issues with printing quality, which many people have reported lately.

Sigh. It will quite a while for me to reduce my return rate low enough to get my next tier up it seems it seems.

Maybe it will be my Christmas present?

Spreadshirt.de keeps showing strong and stable sales throughout the whole month.

Those sales together generated roughly 239,49 € in royalties. This corresponds to a decrease of -15 % compared to the previous month, which reached 280,81 € in royalties.

I still have 2279 designs published on Spreadshirt.de. Nothing new was uploaded this month.

Spreadshirt.com actually set a new record month. I did not expect that.

In September I reached a total of 8 sales on Spreadshirt.com. This corresponds to an increase of +14 % compared to the previous month, which reached 7 sales.

Those sales together generated roughly $ 31.05 in royalties. This corresponds to an increase of +23 % compared to the previous month, which reached $ 25.15 in royalties.

I still have 360 designs published on Spreadshirt.com. Also nothing new uploaded here.

Redbubble

I doubled my sales on Redbubble again last month. Woohoo!

In September I reached a total of 4 sales on Redbubble. This corresponds to an increase of +100 % compared to the previous month, which reached 2 sale.

Those sales together generated roughly 8,72 € in royalties. This corresponds to an increase of +340 % compared to the previous month, which reached 1,98 € in royalties.

I still have 807 designs published on Redbubble.

Total Sales and Royalties

Adding the figures from all above platforms together amounts to a total of 213 sales. This corresponds to a decrease of -27 % compared to the previous month, which reached 291 sales.

All sales together generated roughly 721,79 € in royalties that I earned. This corresponds to a decrease of -10 % compared to the previous month, which reached 800,44 € in royalties.

As you can see, I actually made a solid income from my print on demand business in the past month — and that was truly and completely passive income.

Last month I was focused on getting a small freelance opportunity on Fiverr going, with the intention of building another income stream.

But seeing that my print on demand business keeps making me money — even when I’m not actively working on it for a while — reassures me once more why I’m motivated to develop this business further.

It is time for me to outsource, automate, and streamline many processes, so that I can keep growing it over the next few months.

There’s lots to do, but I’m looking forward to it.
