1. Why Sunfrog?
Something similar to Teespring
- Time limit - You have the options to use the time limit or not. And easily adjust the time range as many times as you want.
- Worldwide shipping – You can sell to any country.
- Selling method – Use the same selling method you used for Teespring shirts.
- Payment - Sunfrog pay you on the first day of the month. If your commission is above $250, you can request the payout immediately. There are 3 payment methods:
- Direct Deposit into your account. *US Banks Only
- As Paypal fee is high and check is slow, I recommend you use Direct Deposit. If you don’t have a US Bank Account, sign up for a Payoneer account here and get $25 in your account http://Sunfrog-training.com/payoneer-sign-up (use a proxy if you couldn’t access the link). The money loaded onto my Payoneer account about 2 days after I request a payout.
Advantages compare to Teespring
- Earn money on every single sale - You don’t have to meet the goal to receive the money, easier for newbie.
- Use as many color for your design as you want - Commission base on the percentage of the shirt price, you’ll receive same amount of commission regardless the number of colors of your design.
- Commission - There are two types of commission you will get:
- Artist commission - 5.5% of the shirt price if you sell your own design or someone sell your design, 0% if you sell someone else’s design.
- Affiliate commission - Normally 35% of the shirt price. To receive 40%, sign up for an account using this link http://Sunfrog-training.com/sunfrog-sign-up
- If you send traffic to your t-shirt, then people buy someone else’s t-shirt, you still receive affiliate commission (I receive a lot commission from this).
- Earn more when people buy large size (2X Large, 3X Large have +$3 on the shirt price).
