Our number one priorty is to help our merchants succeed. We're always looking for ways to help our merchants improve their sales, increase their revenue and improve customer retention. Today we're delighted to announce a feature that's been many months in the making, but one that we believe could be a genuine game-changer within the gaming community.
Buycraft is proud to launch Tebex Merchandise, our brand new print on demand merchandising platform. With Tebex Merchandise you can sell branded merchandise on your webstore quickly and easily. There is no production, stocking or fulfilment to worry about, just create your designs, set your price and start selling.
We've invested a great deal of time in sourcing the best suppliers around the world to ensure worldwide coverage for our merchants, as well as securing a wide range of product lines to keep your players coming back for new merch again and again.
We've spent the past few weeks soft-launching the platform with launch partners. We've been thrilled to see the initial results and the excitement generated in network communities, and we can't wait to share that with all our merchants. One of our launch partners, PartyZone have launched an initial range of products, and we think they look great:
During our soft launch we have released a range of apparel items that you can start applying your own designs to straight away - hoodies in particular are already proving to be popular. In addition, we have already lined up a number of new suppliers to allow us to introduce a range of new product lines including mugs, mousepads, phonecases and posters. All of these and more will be available in the coming weeks and months as we continue to build the platform.
Designing your products is easy with our design tool - simply upload your artwork, position and size it to your liking and you are done. Our artwork processing tool will then format and save your artwork to ensure it is compatible with our supplier network, allowing you to focus on selling.
While working with our launch partners we've been able to continue to improve and develop the platform, and we're excited to open up applications to all of our merchants. The entire application process is handled within your control panel. To get started you can find the application form in the package creation section of your control panel. For more information on the application process you can find our guide here: How to apply for Tebex Merchandise.
As with any new platform we will be slowly increasing the number of merchants who can use the platform over the coming weeks. Applications will be prioritised by plan (Enterprise and Ultimate customers getting first priority) and then on a first-come-first-served basis, so jump to the front of the queue by heading over to your control panel now!
We hope our merchants are just as excited about the platform as we are, but we will not rest here. If you have ideas for other products you'd like to see available on Tebex Merchandise, or other features that would make your store more successful, please let us know.
