What is changing?
Merch is offering a product creation beta allowing you to publish multiple products in multiple marketplaces with a single submission.
We are streamlining the product creation process to make it as quick and easy as possible to use the same artwork and metadata to create multiple products.
The beta is accessible under the create link in the navigation. Please note that all other links and buttons on the page will direct to the current single product creation flow.
Instead of uploading an artwork file and adding metadata for each product in each marketplace, the new process will apply artwork and metadata to available products in each marketplace. To distinguish products, we will append the product name to your title. For instance, if your design is titled “I Really Love Cats OK?,” we will add the word “T-Shirt” to the end of the t-shirt title so it will display as “I Really Love Cats OK? T-Shirt.”
Yes, all of the current image size requirements will remain the same
No, you will need to provide the translated text. If you do not provide translated text, your detail page will be published in English.
No. If you want to use individual titles, brands or descriptions for different products you will need to upload them using the single product creation workflow.
You will receive a separate email for each product
When you submit designs through the multiple products workflow, each product will count as a separate submission and will be reviewed individually. If a design is rejected, for one or more products, you will receive an email notification for each individual product.
No. The following features are not currently enabled in the beta creation workflow:
All products created through the beta will be accessible though the manage page along with all your other existing products. Choose which product you would like to change using the Actions > Edit button, as you normally do.
Yes. During the beta period enabled accounts will have the option of creating products through either the beta or the original product creation workflow.
No. At this time all of your existing products will remain in the current single product process.
To start, product and daily submission limits will continue to be based on the number of products submitted. So, if you have 50 new submissions remaining for the day and submit a single design on four US products, one UK product, and one DE product, that will count as six submissions and you will have 44 daily submissions remaining.
We will be enabling accounts in phases over the next several months. Please note that we will not be able to provide updates on access for individual accounts.
We will update this space when changes are made to the beta.
