I am a little surprised that we are forced to make our designs for men, women and youth sizes. I am even more surprised that the main sales image is randomly chosen for no apparent reason. I understand the claims that the most popular is shown but this doesn't add up when you're talking about new listings.... read on. Imagine that a designer has a shirt that says, "This Guy Loves His Wife" or "Proud Daddy" and he/she would like to sell it on Amazon Merch. When the designer creates the shirt, he/she is forced to make it available for both genders and even children. Even more absurd is that the automatically generated main sales image could display a women's shirt. What we have now is a shirt for a guy, being displayed in searches with a women's shirt image, not to mention that this display image could easily just as well be for 8 year olds claiming to love their wife or be a new father. My point is that we should be able to choose which shirt is displayed on the search results. Also, please consider letting us choose which gender of shirt to offer and have the ability to exclude youth sizes. Nobody wants to see a beer pong shirt listed in sizes for an 8 year old. And a designer with a "crazy cat lady" shirt shouldn't have to offer their design on a 3XL mens shirt, although that does sound rather humorous. Thanks for listening to my suggestions.
This is something I don't understand either. It precludes making age- or gender-specific designs unless we simply don't care--which we do. I have a design specifically for kids, and though those kids could certainly be teens, I imagine it's mostly for younger children who might be wearing "military brat" shirts purchased for them by their parents.
Exactly. Say for instance I wanted to make a shirt for a child who is expecting a sibling, which reads "I'm a Big Brother" What are the odds of that shirt being displayed in the search results as an adult women's tee? The odds are pretty good in my experience and not good for sales.
Totally agree with all the above - would also like the ability to show the back design as the default. I have a couple of shirts where the primary graphic is on the back and the front only has a small pocket area graphic which doesn't really catch the eye in search results... Would also be nice to be able to upload additional graphics, say someone wearing the shirt or a closeup of the design.
I agree, and hopefully they will allow us to determine the market(s) in the future, but if and when they do, keep in mind that a woman might buy a men's size (2 XL is not available for women right now), and a very small woman might buy a youth size (my daughter did), so don't knock off sizes if there is the slightest possibility of leaving out a buyer due to size issues. The other hope is that they will add more sizes and colors in the near future, but for the moment, I will be happy for them to just catch up on production. They are about two weeks behind right now. So let's make our wish list, but be patient. They literally just opened the doors.
Thanks everyone for your feedback. We appreciate the thoughts on targeting for genders and audience for each t-shirt creation. L Frase brings up a great point that women might order a men's size tee, or vice versa. We also have a few kids t-shirts that fit on some large dogs here in the office, particularly the corgis. We will forward this feature request to the product team.
