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


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 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

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.

This allows you to limit how many you get back when there are plenty available. The maximum size (limit imposed by Zazzle) is 120 when you don't use a collection. When you do, Zazzle limits it to 247, even if more are available in the collection.

Ignored by the nIFTTTy Scheduler, which has its own settings for how many to schedule.

Save your current settings by bookmarking this link:

Bookmarking is how you "save" your settings. All the options that you set using this control panel become encoded in the link given.

When you bookmark the link, those encoded settings are included. This means that when you visit the bookmark later, those settings get used as the initial choices in the form.

About News

Every time there's a change to this Nifty tool we'll announce it here. Whenever there's a new announcement, the previous one you saw will be shifted into the history.

If we need to, we'll update the current announcement instead of making a new one.

If you've hidden the news until there's a new announcement, you won't see updates. If you want to check for updates to the existing announcement from time to time, start the tool with this ?shownews=yes (and nothing else) immediately after the .html up in the address bar.

If you don't use the tool for a while, you may miss some announcements entirely and they won't be in your history - but that's ok, just visit the Facebook group linked below if there's a new feature you need help with :)

The buttons give you full control over what's displayed in this panel or whether the panel itself is displayed at all, with an option to keep it hidden until there's a new announcement.

One final point: we'll also show you here if there's a general announcement about Nifty that we think you need to see - but it won't be added to your history for this tool.

If you need help about any announcement made, visit the NiftyToolZTips and Support Facebook group and ask there. To see an explanation of this tool, visit the Nifty Product Stager page on our site.
