As I said in my previous blog post, I’ll describe each website in detail.
So what is RED BUBBLE?
Red Bubble was the second e-commerce website that I registered with. I heard about it through Youtube since there were a lot of videos comparing Society 6 and this website. Instead of choosing one for my online store, I decided “Why not both??”.
Uploading an artwork is faster compared to its competition. You could upload with different file formats, but I prefer .png for the transparency.
From there you could edit your artworks on their different products with just a click of a button. You could resize and reposition them by just clicking on the product you want to edit. No need to open another web page. You could also upload another image per product if you don’t want to use the original. One thing that I like about Red Bubble is that I could make patterns out of my products! This makes it so easier to complete the product page. ♥
The reason for uploading in .png is because Red Bubble offers their products in different colors. If I were to upload my file in .jpeg, it would also show the white in pattern making. Not a problem for myself because I clean the whites off my artworks in Photoshop.
As for the prices, you could edit every product’s % markup compared to Soc6 (where you could only edit the price for the prints). I just left mine on default which is 20%.
The title, description, and tags are the last things to input on the edit product page. They also have an option of adding another language if you want.
Overall, I’m quite happy with Red Bubble. Its much easier to upload and edit my products here compared to the competition. By uploading my artworks here, I get a bit of passive income as well. That’s the goal, but I recently just sold one item here HAHA. But its still one item!
