Redbubble is a bit of an odd one in terms of sales, as the company has traditionally taken 20% from all products sold. This may be due to Redbubble not having any high-end clients and thus needing some way to monetize its core audience, but it could also simply reflect Redbubble’s small size. On the plus side, Redbubble does take a 20% cut of sales before you even get to think about shipping or printing your product, which is far better than many other options on this list!
With that said however, it remains difficult for artists with less popular products to reach the level of success that Redbubble is looking for. Those with more popular products will likely find it easier, but you’ll need to be able to pay upfront costs from sales and have a high-volume product or service in order for this workhorse platform.
“Redbubble’s website is very easy to use, with the majority of its features and functionality provided in a single location. There are however some things that aren’t quite as intuitive or straightforward‚ for example, there isn’t an ‘About Redbubble’ page that gives you a complete overview of the company and its services, so it’s important to do your research on Redbubble before starting.
Redbubble also has an excellent customer service team‚ they respond very quickly to questions or problems that arise with their platform, which is particularly helpful when setting up your account and uploading products.
Live Chat Support is also available 24/7, which means you can get help from Redbubble support team whenever problems arise.
Refund Policy: There are no official refund policies with the company, however should a product be returned to the sender within 14 days of purchase there will either be an issue resolved or your account credited in full.
Other Discounts: Redbubble has a variety of discounts available to artists and sellers. These range from the standard 10%, which is often applicable when you have products already sold on other platforms, or 15%, 20%‚ even 50%. The discounts are always applied automatically, so there is no need for you to do anything special. In fact, it’s actually pretty bad form not to take advantage of these Redbubble commissions.
International Shipping: Redbubble offers free shipping to over 60+ countries, and this is usually processed automatically when you upload a product. You can also choose between two-day or one-day delivery, with the latter being very useful if your products are large in size.”
