Frequently Asked Questions
Your brand is how people see you and how you're spotted. If your logo/style isn't instantly recognizable, merchandise is a great way to solidify your brand. It takes 5-7 impressions before someone will remember your branding and logo, so if you're not sure about your brand, trying out designs on merch is a great start! Make sure to incorporate your channel branding, logo, color scheme, and general personality into your merch and storefront! Consistency makes your brand recognizable across all platforms.
Shelf Merch lets creators set up everything they need for their off-platform presence. You can launch a beautiful homepage and link to all of your content, open a shop and sell products. You can set it all up on your own fully branded website that's 100% owned by you, from the domain name to the data.
Shelf Merch has no monthly fees and no upfront costs. We only make money when you do.
Product prices are listed directly in our product catalog. For example, if a t-shirt is listed at Rs 500, then that's what it costs you. You can then sell it for whatever price that you wish. For example, if you set it to Rs 600, you'll make Rs 100 on each unit sold. This gives you the flexibility to set pricing that is most appropriate for you and your community. Please note that all transactions include a payment process fee.
No. You can create products that are either printed-on-demand or as part of a pre-order campaign (i.e. drop), so there's no inventory risk. We also allow you to pre-purchase and manage inventory, but we generally encourage creators to use one of these no-risk models until they've established a clear sales history.
Nope. You're free to use Shelf Merch or leave at any time. You can learn more about our policies in our Terms of Service.
Each product sold goes through a series of quality assurance checks to ensure the best experience for creators and their audience.
