Preparation

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.

Cloud

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.

Spreadsheet

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.
Excel Templates Button on the bottom right of the Workspace
This button will take you to the folder where you can find the templates. In it you will find two templates for Teepublic. Teepublic.xlsx and Teepublic_Old.xlsx can be found here. Although both files work when it comes to importing your listings, we recommend using the latest one.
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”.

Lazy Template

Under LazyTemplate you enter the name of your Product Settings Template. This ensures that the design in the relevant line is imported with all the important information. If you have created templates for several needs, for example one for light designs and one for dark ones, you can easily vary the template names per line.
If the specified name does not exist or has a typo in it, the default template will be selected.

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.

Title

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

Description

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

Main Tag

Here you can type in one Keyword, whether if it's a longtail keyword or not, to serve as main tag. Teepublic might change it to a similiar tag they recommend after your input.

Tags

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

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”.

Although importing with the outdated spreadsheet still works, we recommend using the new template.

Color

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.
You can also use the name of the Dark or Light buttons of Teepublic's color selection, so the following is possible: Black, Black/White, Dark

Hex Color

In this column you can type in a hexadecimal value which will be applied to all the products having such an option.

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”.
