Eight months ago, I started selling on Etsy...It really is a short time but gained a good experience and earned in this period more than 34k dollars.



I tie up my Etsy account with the printful ( You sell products on your store, and printful automatically process and fulfill them when orders come through, and ship them out to your customer, without any monthly fees), I add more than 12 design shirts I was optimistic I would get sales.

Did I?

Yeah!  Just a day after adding my Shirt designs I was asleep and dreamed I got 3 sales and I woke up quickly and opened my phone and I was really surprised that I got 3 sales, I was shocked by a dream come true.

Anyway, I was happy when I watching printful fulfillment my orders, and start to make money on Etsy and in the next day I got two sales.

But I was disappointed because my design was rejected due to intellectual property rights because the designs were for a movie and a brand "Gucci"



I got help from my friend (graphic designer) and we worked together and made a perfect profit
