So what’s going on at ThreadBasket?
I still remember when we first got into Merch by Amazon. We had a lot of experience already with print-on-demand from the many years we had been selling on Spreadshirt, Redbubble and just about any other marketplace you can think of. But then came Merch by Amazon with an entirely different system and a very different audience. You would think that with all the traffic that Amazon gets, it should be really simple to just sell all the designs we had already created for other platforms. Oh boy, were we wrong!read more
We know, we know. It’s been far too long and we’re way past the originally planned launch date. But you know what? Building a platform like this is a lot more difficult than most people think. it’s not just the initial development phase, but also all the testing and fixing. You literally need to prepare for any type of situation. You need to put yourself in the shoes of so many different types people, it’s downright schizophrenic.
You see, just because some things seem obvious or logical to us, does not mean that you as a user will feel the same way. And then there’s the issue around new ideas. We can only imagine a certain amount of use cases. But beta testers come up with all sorts of great ideas and it takes time to put them into action. And last but not least….we’re not a huge company and we’ve got so many other projects going as well.read more
That’s right people. We’re slowly but surely getting closer to that special day. We’ve been working tirelessly for the past few months because we truly believe that ThreadBasket will be absolutely unique in the current Print-on-Demand community. Will be packed with loads of features, some of which aren’t offered anywhere else and we want you all to be a part of it.
However, before we can properly launch this thing, we are going to need your help in testing all the basic functionalities of the site. You see, in an online marketplace like this, there are so many things that need to be considered and therefore there’s a lot of room for mistakes. But those bugs can easily be weeded out by real life beta testers such as yourself.read more
