I have been a member of cafepress since 2005. I went from making thousands to hundreds and now I barely get $300 per month from Cafepress. Traffic is lower now, and I know this from collecting 5 years of Google Analytics reports and tracking. My fan portal designs outperform all my designs in total by 87%. I understand the company must stabilize during weak economic times but you can’t take away the incentive for us shopkeepers to want to willingly continue to design new art at cafepress. Going from 20% in 2006 to 15% in 2009 to 10% in 2010 and now being told 5% is wrong, plain and simple. All your competitors are handing out 20-30% commissions to shop keepers. I understand the competitive market but the recent business strategies are killing the income of the people who are designing the products for you to sell. My primary business model is fan portal shirts from movies and tv shows. Doing a flat 5% for fan portal and name brand products are giving us all pay cuts and you know it. I understand there is a higher cost for attaining licenses from license companies who own the movie and tv show properties. Do like the plus size apparel though, and charge those products are a higher cost, not effecting our commissions. There have to be more alternative choices to make.

Cyber Monday is a marketing term for the Monday after Black Friday, the Friday following Thanksgiving in the United States, created by companies to persuade people to shop online. The term made its debut on November 28, 2005 in a Shop.org press release entitled “‘Cyber Monday’ Quickly Becoming One of the Biggest Online Shopping Days of the Year”.
According to the Shop.org/BizRate Research 2005 eHoliday Mood Study, “77 percent of online retailers said that their sales increased substantially on the Monday after Thanksgiving, a trend that is driving serious online discounts and promotions on Cyber Monday this year (2005)”. In 2010, comScore reported that consumers spent $1.028 Billion online on Cyber Monday (excluding travel, 2009: $887M), the highest spending day of 2010.
