Merch by Amazon Is basically on demand t-shirt service. This service is provided by Amazon which allows to you create and list different T-shirts on Amazon. Well, most of you have remembered how shirts used to sell on different platforms, and you have to wait for many days to see if shirts are selling or not.

Now you don’t have to worry about that because the shirt which you will select you have to pay for it. Just upload the design, set a specific picture and colour, Amazon will do rest. The quality depends on the amount you select for a particular shirt.  

How to get started with Merch by Amazon?

Do you want to design a shirt for Merch by Amazon? I will guide you step by step that how can you become a good Merch designer. If you are a beginner, then follow these steps.


This T-shirt brand had become so popular when it was first launched. While this process started, hundreds of members were looking after this how it works. So Amazon started a waiting list which can be shown to you after you do signup.

This waiting list can be between 3 weeks or 3 months. The best process is to sign up and explore knowledge regarding this as Amazon sell your design as a product, so you have to gain more experience regarding this.

Once Amazon approves you, you can log in to your account. Before you start the process, you have to fill some details regarding your information.



If you are worried about what things you must be needed to start work then below is your answer.  

  • First, you must need a Merch account by Amazon.
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Let me be honest; you must be creative enough to design attractive designs.

All these things will be the basic requirements when you start your work. In case if you are copying the design from other your account will be terminated by Amazon. So be aware of these things.


STEP3: Make A Gameplan

Before you start your work, you need a plan to pass through it. Making accounts and starting work wouldn’t help you until you don’t have an idea. Like I said before you can create your accounts but how would you target the audience? That can be challenging until you don’t have the right plan.

Following are my tips which you should follow to get a better knowledge of what I am saying.

  • Target the audience. Your audience is the key to your success so target them as much you can.
  • You must have conventional designs on shirts. You can add both images and quotes.
  • In case if you are worried about how you will get the idea? You can explore many images on Google, or you can follow other Amazon t-shirts to get an idea. But don’t copy them. Be creative enough to design them.
  • You must know Photoshop. The better is your design, the better you can get orders.

STEP 4: Recognizing Merch T-Shirts

Before you hire a merch designer or design your Merch shirts, you must know how these shirts look like. You can see Merch Listing on Amazon to get better knowledge.

Once you have got the idea, you can check the BSR which is the best-selling rank of different shirts.

The tool which I used was Merch Research because it gives an accurate reading of how a shirt looks like and what are their sales. All Merch shirts have two things in common first the Sizing chart and second a visible white tag.


STEP 5: Understand Amazon Best Seller Ranks

Like I have mentioned above that you have to understand the best-selling rank of different shirts. You can do it easily by following these steps.

  • First search for a Merch Shirt.
  • After that click into the list and scroll to the product description.
  • If you can’t find the ranking, it means 0 t-shirts are sold.
  • You can use these rankings to design the perfect design for your T-shirt.


STEP 6: Check Your Competition

Let’s say you have found a competition. After that, you entered into Amazon and checked around 264 lists of Amazon shirts. Now your question is Would this is the shirt I am looking for? Then it’s a no because you can’t decide your target from a single T-shirt. You have to search more to get a better result.

Two things which you have to keep in your Mind one is Competition and Other is optimisation. It doesn’t matter how amazing is your design you have to fight with 264 sellers to stand in the competition.

Things you should keep in mind while you are competing for others.

  • Don’t copy their design.
  • If you have target one shirt, search about it.
  • Select different categories for your shirt.


STEP 7: Promo Codes

If you want to attract users to buy your t-shirt, you can have promo codes on your designs. Which means you can give them t-shirts on sales. Amazon every year provides a massive deal on Black Friday. So I would suggest you make lots of T-Shirt during that event so that your shirts can have high sales.  

If you want to create your T-shirt below is my proper guide for you.


Creating Your First T-Shirt
