A2. Create Your Product
Under Style and Design on the right, you can refine your Product type until it's exactly what you want. On the right,you can add text, upload your own images, use our clip-art, or combine all three methods to create products. You can change the color of apparel, as well as the color and formatting of fonts. Decide whether to print only on the front or back of your product, or both, by clicking the thumbnails beneath the main image. The thumbnails at the bottom of the page will allow you to switch to any of our product types.

Sublimation Printing allows our Designers to print in full color & on entire garments, rather than in a specific area. This, usually expensive, rare, and very eye catch process, has been made available and affordable to everyone creating products at Simbyl!

A4. Set A Sales Goal
Set a sales goal that you want your product to achieve. Use the Sales Goal box or slider to set your Sales Goal. Add your Selling Price. You can also create additional campaigns with the same artwork here, in any of our product categories.
Be very careful not to set your Sales Goal beyond what you will be able to reach. We will manufacture and ship most orders that reach our minimum item number requirements, but since we adjust your profit/sale up or down based on your projected sales (Sales Goal), if you set your Sales Goal too high and sell less than that then your profit/sale will be lower than you expected; and we won’t ship your items in the rare case where your too high Sales Goal would cause you to take a loss because the actual sales are so much lower.

A5. Add a Description
Enter the Title that your campaign will have on your Sales Page, the Tags that will help anyone searching our site to find your campaign, a Description of your product or campaign for your customers, choose How Long you want your campaign to last before it expires, and choose whether you want to create a Custom Url (web address) or use one that we randomly generate for you.
You can choose to show the back of your item by default on your Sales Page, and if you want to have all items shipped to you rather than to your customers, you can select that here.
Finally you will be required to affirm that your design does not infringe anyone’s copyright. Both Simbyl and our manufacturers scan for this, and copyright violations will force us to reject your campaigns.

B1. Referrals: How Does It Work
Please go click the Referral link at the top of this page or go to this link for a more detailed explanation: http://simbyl.com/referral/referrals/referral_profit
The very short version is that when someone you refer to Simbyl runs a successful campaign, you make money. When the person you referred refers someone to Simbyl and that person runs a successful campaign, you also make money. And... when that third person refers someone to Simbyl, and this fourth person runs a successful campaign, you keep making money. Too bad your job isn’t this easy!
B2. Share Your Code
Your customers will need to sign up at Simbyl to purchase your products. Its to your benefit to have them use your referral code when signing up so that you’ll be able to participate in Simbyl Profit Sharing. To find your referral code, look under My Account - Referrals, and click “Know Your Code” to display the code and easily share it on social media; you can also go to any of your campaign Sales pages and click “Click here for my referral code” to display your code
You can share it via email, social media, encouraging people to get it on your Sales Page, or any other method that you like.
C1. Your Profile: Your Page
Sign Up for, or log into your Simbyl Account, and click “My Profile” at this top of this screen. There you can upload a banner image and a profile picture.

With Simbyl you can create promotional codes to give to your customers for sales, or contests, etc. Your Promotions can be in the form of $ or % discounts, or Free Shipping. The cost of your promotions will be deducted from your campaign’s profit margin, so be careful how you use them or you could make your campaign too unprofitable to fulfill. You can create Promotions from My Account - Promotions.
E1. Create a Collection (Store): Add Products
With Simbyl, not only can you create individual campaigns, once you have at least three campaigns, you can create an entire Store! This is a great way for you to target different types of designs and items to different customer groups. For example you could have a store with only t-shirts targeted towards your biker friends, a separate store with kids clothes targeted towards parents at the local school, and a third store with your Wall Art that you send to your artist friends! The possibilities are endless. To create a Store go to My Account - Your Stores and follow the instructions.
F1. Partners: Propose a Partnership
Partnership allows you to promote items for other Simbyl designers and to recieve a small % of sales profits that are directly due to your promotion efforts. This can also be great for someone who already has a large following and decides to promote campaigns that they like to make extra money, or great for someone who’s starting out and wants another way to promote their products, etc. Go to your Profile and click the My Partners tab for more explanation.
To add a Partner, go to someone’s profile page and click Request Partnership. You will get an email notification of new partnership requests, and see the status of Partnership Requests at My Account - Partners. You can see your profits from Partnerships at My Account - Payouts - Partnership Payout.
