If you cast your mind back a couple of months, you may remember we began the process of enabling artists to add multiple products to the one work. ‘Phase One’ linked clothing and stickers with iPhone cases. After much sweating over hot code it’s time for ‘Phase Two’ which will see prints, cards and posters to the mix. From here on in, when you upload a new work to RedBubble you’ll be able to manage all the product formats from one upload screen and these will be viewable from one page.
As explained when Phase One was launched, the change is designed to help people to more easily browse and shop on RedBubble. When browsers find an artwork they love, they’ll be able to see all the product options for that piece of work, rather than having to dig through your portfolio to see if you’ve offered it as another product. Since combining clothing, stickers and iPhone cases, we’ve seen that the change is resulting in a much better experience for buyers and browsers.
If you have an existing work and you wish to add another product format, simply navigate to the edit page for the existing work and you’ll see options to add additional products there. From the edit page, you’ll also be able to choose which format you’d like to display as your default. Please note that works or products that have been uploaded separately cannot be linked.
The best way to familiarise yourselves with these updates is to go and give them a good test run. If you have any questions, drop us a line via support and we’ll do our best to help.
