Teelance Design Upload
Begin here. After you’ve subscribed to the monthly service, begin with uploading a shirt with a unique design. Everything will be much easier if you actually complete the beginner steps. (Tutorials will be provided inside the INCLUDED user Facebook Group, like a forum – ask all your questions there.)

Using Template Designs – Scaling Merch by Amazon
We probably could do a second post solely focusing on scaling up using template designs, so this will just be highlights.
A template design is one in which you can swap out one word for another. Another term you might use is ‘text spinner’ which means we are spinning text out of a sentence to create unique sentences.
For apparel, the easiest way to explain it is if you had a shirt, “Happy 16th Birthday” and you would “spin” the number 16 (technically 16th) for other values such as 13th, 12th, 40th, and so on.
Teelance will help you upload a CSV file of all the template words, and the software rotates them to create all the new designs. Then you upload them to Merch. Easy peasy!
SPECIAL FEATURE: You can upload your own fonts as well (of course be sure you have the appropriate rights to use them)
Relist a Merch by Amazon Deleted Design
If you have long tail keyword designs or seasonal designs that do not sell in 90 days, Amazon deletes the listing.
By using Teelance, you have an immediate back-up of that design ready for review, fine tuning of Title, Bullets, and Keywords, and quick re-list to Merch.
The video above demonstrated the RELIST feature (at about 5 minutes in). Simply click the button, make your desired changes and add the listing into your queue.

Protect Designs – Search and Review for Copycats
Teelance can also search the web for Internet sites that have your stolen designs. You’ll learn about this more in the tutorials, but in summary, there is like a computer spider bot searching for similar designs and you will be notified of potential copy cats. You can then “white list” them if they are valid (like maybe they are on a personal blog of yours) or you can take action to get the violator, the fake competition, removed from the applicable hosting website. This feature makes it easy to protect your intellectual property.
No more time wasted being a “watch dog” because Teelance does it for you. Now you can spend more time creating new apparel or researching new ideas. This alone, may make your monthly investment totally worth it.
Merch Compliance Violations
Rest assured this software is 100% compliant with Merch by Amazon TOS. You will see other software claim to be compliant, and yet they lack human interaction.
NOTE: If you can go to sleep and wake up to a job done by software, that is NOT Merch Compliant. I don’t care if the software was going at a human pace. *This is my strict interpretation of the Merch Rules because I do not want to put my account at risk. Use other software at your own discretion, but I will not use something that has no human interaction per listing. My number one choice is to use Teelance because every upload requires at least one human click.
Concern #1 – What about using scripts?
Software competitors have focused in on this FAQ from Merch TOS:
From Merch by Amazon:
QUESTION: Does Merch by Amazon allow scripting for bulk upload of designs?
As of the last update of this post (see top), there are currently four points of human interaction built into the software. The script cannot complete the listing on its own. Actions are required on the part of the user.
Note: Because of proprietary information, we will not be explaining each interaction in this post.
Concern #2 – How do I work with a Virtual Assistant (VA)?
Amazon doesn’t like other people touching your account:
From Merch by Amazon:
QUESTION: Can I give someone else access to my Merch by Amazon seller account?
Teelance provides a solution to help you grow your business exponentially, with only you signing in to your account for the final step of using the Chrome extension. Your VA can sign in to Teelance, help with any uploading, text editing, template designing, etc. — essentially do everything except click the Chrome extension. VOILA! … you are in compliance!
Quickly becoming my favorite part of the Teelance platform!
