Teezily is…

a Paris-based start-up that harnesses the power of collective crowdfunding. We introduce a new and innovative way for individuals, groups and charities to raise money for their causes by selling personalized clothing, thanks to a 100% free and intuitive platform.

What makes Teezily different from other custom T-shirt design platforms is….

our diversification over the years to introduce new features and tools, in order to enable any entrepreneur to start a business through our platform. More specifically, we have recently launched a new revolutionary app, Teezily Plus, which aims to enhance brand awareness, giving users everything they need to set up their own online shop and get their orders printed and delivered worldwide; along with tips, mock-ups, translations and a complete fulfilment service.

The biggest challenge faced by our affiliates…

are the delays and high fees related to getting paid across borders.

Trending designs at the moment are…

those that reflect buyers who identify with a certain community, such as their job, region, sport, hobby etc. Catchy and funny slogans are also really popular.

Top tip for any affiliate wanting to promote themselves on Teezily…

is to have a good knowledge of Facebook marketing tools. For those who need a helping hand, we offer training and marketing materials, available on our blogs and Facebook groups.

The first step to getting started on Teezily…

is to identify your market niche for a passionate audience that would be interested in purchasing your products. Facebook Insights is a really useful tool to help find your niche.

We believe in…

a sold payment solution since cross-border money transfers are at the core of our business. Being based in Europe, overseas payments were often complicated, slow and too expensive for our affiliates. We are fully committed towards improving the efficiency of our payment methods: indeed, the integration with Payoneer will strengthen our global capabilities and our credibility as an international platform.

Our affiliates can now expect…

a low-cost, fast, flexible and maintenance-free payment method, with payment received within 48 hours after the end date of their campaign.

There are big opportunities in this industry since…

eCommerce is constantly evolving and adapting to changes in digital marketing and social networks communication: thus, this industry offers many opportunities in order to develop a brand, enlarge a customer base and diversify the offer.

In 5 years’ time Teezily will…

definitely be taking part in this eCommerce revolution, as we aim to introduce new tools and products: our core priority is to improve our service and answer to our affiliates’ needs. Hence, the integration with Payoneer represents a unique opportunity and the chance to enlarge our seller base and create new opportunities for global entrepreneurs.
