After joining up with Merch many months ago, have had many challenges with just getting the format right for uploading. (Not a "Visual Arts "pro" though I do quite a bit with my YT Channel, Website design, etc.) Determined to really get it going this year... finally got that down, it seems... but then after filling out all the product descriptions, with product types, etc. (managed to get everything filled...in English, Spanish and Japanese...gave up on the others.) only to find that I'm "frozen" in non-"publish" land where that button refuses to be activated...even though it tells me I'm "logged in" and that I'm approved for a certain number of designs to be published. Cool. So since th publish" button doesn't seem to work...maybe click on "my account" to make sure all is well there? Then, before I know it, I'm lost in wild-goose-chase "eternal" limbo /loop of password reset/OTP sendings / and such.
The craziest thing is...I can't even contact "them" without signing in as "merch" provider...so... LAST RESORT. Here I am. I managed to set up the account...though it never let me set up the user name as intended and typed in (but never would "update"! So many witchy-glitchies! Is it just me?! Somebody tell me I'm not alone...please!) If you don't want the Merch provider landscape to get any more crowded, I can understand that...and maybe you should let me just disappear into the sunset which I'm real close to doing. And I'll appear on the "sunrise" with one of those little merch-design-coordinating companies...of which I'm likely going to be even less impressed with (from any "plan B" homework I've done...in case this doesn't work out). But I really like many things about the sheer magnitude of Amazon's "reach" and global "flow"...
and their printing quality seems to be decent (unlike several smaller competitors!)...and since I've finally got the "formatting" part down... I'd REALLY hate to have to start over somewhere else... I don't think I can take many more "brick walls"! But I also feel that I've (almost) come too far to turn back now... (and have developed quite a few (seriously-original art-WORK) designs in the process....so I'll be sure to take them somewhere!
It would sure be nice if someone could give me a tip on what to do when lost in PW glitchy-zone.
Or someone with a Merch account could contact "them" for me...and let them know I'm. stranded out here...and this "lifeboat" won't last much longer! Thanks to anyone with any helpful thoughts, suggestions or offers! (And, hey...thanks to anyone who's made it through even reading all this! Whatever becomes of all this...I feel better already! = grin = )
