Feedback from regulars is amazing. I hope you enjoy its benefits, too, whatever way makes sense for you to use it.

New feature added in this V3 release: now you can combine multiple feed sources (up to 3) for many tools - see the "Advanced options" section under "More options". Not many will need it but if you do, it's invaluable.

Language does matter. So this collection uses non-binary labels, rather than the old ‘bride’ and ‘groom’ labels which tend to place emphasis on gender. These products are marketed to couples instead of focusing on individuals.

By marketing to couples and focusing on language which includes all genders we seek to create a world where acceptance is paramount. It’s time for a pronoun revolution. Yes, terminology does matter!

Everybody wants to feel that they matter. The language we use to denote various parts of a wedding invitation should be non-binary and avoid the old labels of ‘bride’ and ‘groom’. Inclusive means that we respect all genders.

Step 1: Getting the products to work with

spinner

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/store/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. If you made changes to your collection very recently, you'll need to wait for Zazzle to reindex it.

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. If you've got an up-to-date subscription, yours will be used on all links

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.
