Remove BSR to End Copycat Issue.

This is just an idea to end the copycat issue, or atleast remove it in merch only. Because sellers in merch are copying the designs or phrase who are in the top BSR.

If you have a good BSR, your design is also listed on the first page or two. Should they start listing the good selling shirts last so that people wont copy them? Probably not.

I'm no thief, but I also feel this will not solve anything. There will always be thieves, it's part of the game, unfortunately. I've had many of my top original designs and slogans stolen, both here and private websites. Not worth my time worrying about it.

Not remove the BSR--- Don´t forget: Amazon is a selling website....

Customers want to know what designs/ items are good or bad...

Without BSR some customers wouldn´t know what to buy....

Hey, are you new to POD platform? Have you checked some POD sites? They don't have that seller ranking. It's just up to the buyer if they like the design or not, that's the porpuse of the hover in the shirt image to have a closer look at the design. Some POD sites ranked their products by sales count too but they didn't put that seller ranking in the product overview. I know for sure that if real and true artist from redbubble, tpublic, threadless and s6 are into this merch then it would be more a battle of designs. Hiring an artist in fiverr is not safe, I can tell because Most of the freelance artist has their what we call "template" to fasten their work of a specific design, so that design template is not just for a specific client but also to the other clients which might cause for infringement or copyright issue. IMO.

Sure Other POD dont have that BSR Ranking. But amazon is the biggest seller. This BSR Ranking is Special for them on all items... I think they wont change it on merch... Why change it on merch and why Not change it on KDP?
