Different ways how your listing comes into the tool

Without listing, no successful upload. Each platform has different requirements and needs. On this page we will show you how to make sure that your data and listings get into the tool reliably.


The way we want to encourage you the most is to prepare your listings in our LazyCloud. Not only that you can write the listings there much easier and prepare them for upload, but also because you can edit them there better afterwards. More information about the LazyCloud can be found here and the documentation of the cloud, where this preparation process is described, can be found here.

We are working on getting our Cloud Project live as soon as possible. As soon as it is ready, this section will be updated with the corresponding links.


To prepare your data with tables, you need our table file templates. You can find them by clicking on the Excel Templates button in the lower right corner of the tool's workspace.

This button will take you to the folder where you can find the templates. In it you will find the Society6Template.xlsx.

Do not modify these template files, but copy them to another path and start editing there. This folder in the LazyMerch installation directory should remain untouched, so that none of your important data is lost during an update.


Design Path

This column is designed to get the paths to your designs. Get the path to one or more designs and paste it here. Paths also include links to a cloud service where your designs are stored. However, make sure that the link goes directly to the image file without requiring authentication.

On windows there is an easy way to fill in your spreadsheet with the data path of your designs. Simply select the design you would like to upload first while holding shift and right click.

Afterwards, select “copy as path” to safe the files to the clipboard. You can now hold CTRL+V to transfer them to your spreadsheet in the column “DesignPath”.


Give us a catchy title for your design. The title is a necessary input.

Input Language

Under Input Language you can specify the language your listing is written in. This is important for the tool to be able to estimate if translation is needed for your chosen marketplace.


In the Description column you can insert your description. It's another great opportunity to use keywords related to your design's niche.


Under “Tags” you can type in keywords that describe your design. Please make sure, that you always use a comma ( , ) in between each keyword.


Specify the colors to be uploaded during the upload. The color selection works on a first come first serve basis, which means that the first named colors for a product will be selected. If a color is not available for a product, it will be skipped.

Adults Only

This column requires a Boolean value which specifies, whether the design should only be available for adults or not. You can opt for YES by choosing “1” and NO by choosing “0”.


In this column you can specify the product names you want to make your designs available for. Make sure that the spelling is the same as on the platform. You can also specify multiple product names separated by commas. If the field is left empty, the settings from the Product Settings will be used.

Background Color

For some products on Society6 there is no option to choose the background color. However, LazyMerch allows you to add a background color to these products with the design. In this column you can specify a Hex Color value for it.
