Step 1: Getting the products to work with


This step is all about telling Zazzle what you want to work with in your promotion session / campaign.

Once you're happy with your choices and the products you get as a result, you can then move on to step 2, doing the promotion using them.

Note that whenever you make a change and hit enter or click outside the box, the results are updated right away.

Your store id is the one used in your Zazzle store url. One of our store urls is www.zazzle.com/hightonridley and so our store id for it is hightonridley

If you leave Store Id blank, then products will be pulled from the Zazzle marketplace instead.

Working with products in Zazzle collections

When you want to pull from a particular collection, you'll need the collection id. It's the number at the end of the collection url.

For example, here's a collection url www.zazzle.com/collections/bestselling_invitations-119790471480538912

To pull from that collection, use collections/119790471480538912 in the box. That's it, you'll now have the contents of your collection to work with.

Note that with collections, Zazzle ignores some of the choices you could otherwise use. See each choice's help to see if it applies.

Your referral id and associate id are the same thing. One has to be provided, so until you give yours, mine will be used.

This can be a single word or a group of words to make a phrase, separated with spaces. Don't use quotes or other special characters. What you give is passed to Zazzle for interpretation, so their rules apply as to what you can use here and how it works.

Ignored when pulling from collections.
