It’s Here! Integrate the T-Shirt Designer into Your Shop.

It’s Here! Integrate the T-Shirt Designer into Your Shop.

You can now offer your customers more choice and earn more in the process by integrating Spreadshirt’s T-Shirt Designer directly into your Shop.  Your customers can adjust and personalize your designs or create their own products without ever having to leave your Shop!  The best part: every time a purchase is made—regardless of if it’s one of your products or something customers design themselves—you earn.

How Does This Work?

To integrate the T-Shirt Designer into your Shop, go to ‘Shop Settings’ in your user account and click on your Shop’s ‘Edit’ button. You’ll find the ‘T-Shirt Designer’ option in the column on the left.  Click it and you’ll see a few options available to you:

  • Activate T-Shirt Designer: Turning on this option integrates the T-Shirt Designer into your Shop and enables you to choose which options you’d like to offer your customers. Selecting this option alone allows customers to edit the color and placement of your designs to their liking. Enabling this option also adds a “Create” toolbar to your Shop’s header.
  • Include Spreadshirt Designs: Enabling this option allows your customers to choose a design from Spreadshirt, either in addition to or instead of the designs offered in your shop.
  • Allow Customers to Upload Images: Enabling this option adds the uploading feature to your Shop’s designer. Customers will be able to upload their own photos or designs to customize their products.
  • Allow Customers to Add Text: Enabling this option adds the text customization tool to your Shop’s designer. Customers will be able to add text to products in all sorts of colors and fonts.


Even if you have no designs for sale, you can still integrate the T-Shirt Designer into your shop, enabling customers to customize products the way they want, just as they would on our platform.

Your Pay

You will earn a commission with every sale generated in your Shop regardless of whether your customers buy your designs, Marketplace designs or import their own designs.

Affiliate Commission: If a customer buys a product they’ve created in your Shop, and it only includes Marketplace designs or designs they have uploaded themselves, you will earn your Affiliate Commission (don’t forget to check the “Apply Affiliate Commission” box in your user area under “Advanced” -> “Shop Overview”). If a customer orders a product with one of your designs, you will also earn your design price in addition to the Affiliate Commission.

Volume Commission: Any sale generated in your Shop counts towards your Volume Commission.  Volume Commissions are determined by the number of products sold during a respective two-week sales period.

We are very excited for not only the options this feature will offer your cstomers, but also for the spike in commission it is sure to generate for your Shop.  Play around with the different integration features, and you’ll be seeing your sales rise in no time!

  1. Hi, does this facility still exist? It sounds perfect for what I’m looking for but I don’t seem to be able to find where to activate it. Many thanks!

    • 🙂 Glad you found it. And yes, the T-Shirt Designer is part of the Spreadshop and can be easily activated!

  2. I added the t-shirt designer option making sure that UPLOAD was not clicked, it is still available on the site.

    Also, I have more designs than what is showing once I click CHOOSE A DESIGN. Am I doing something incorrectly? How do I add designs specifically for 1 of my shops?

    • Hey Twiztidtex,

      Can you let me know your shopID please?
      Also, in your t-shirt designer all the designs that you have uploaded to that specific shop are shown.


  3. When I go to choose from existing spreadshirt designs, it shows bunch of categories irrelevant to my shops target audience, it would be great to choose specific categories and keep the search field.

    Also in those preselected categories it shows first 2 categories, in which I have no designs. When I try to upload into “my shop” designs, they only show up in “show all” and not in my specific shop. The categories I have showing up are useless and misleading is there a way to remove them, i couldnt find how.

  4. This is great however, I would like to exclude some designs, by other artists, that are of questionable taste, rude, or objectionable from the search results on my shop. Is this possible????

    • Hi Overtink,

      You cannot exclude specific Spreadshirt designs but you can just exclude having any Spreadshirt designs.
      Hope this helps!


    • Hi Andrew,

      Just click on your shop settings, edit, and on the left you’ll see the option “T-Shirt Designer”. You can click on it and easily ativate it.


    • Hi Valdino,

      Yes you can integrate your US shop into your website keeping in mind that altough we do ship to Brazil we do not have a Brazilian platform as such and therefore no Brazilian shop system. Let me know if you have any further questions.


    • Hi Vanessa,

      Great to hear you like it! No, your customer’s design won’t live on your shop, no worries 🙂


    • Hi Horhe,

      You will receive 20% each time something is bought in the t-shirt designer (and none of your designs are used).


  5. Have been waiting for this for a while.

    Is there a way to integrate it into shops using the JavaScript integration in a similar manner to the basket hash bang?

    I have the SpreadShop navigation bar hidden in my integrated shop so that I can control the navigation so the Create link will not be visible.


  6. Good morning.

    This sounds like a great idea to promote designs and earn extra commission, including affiliate commission.

    I followed your instructions, including clicking the Affiliate commission tick button under ‘Shop Overview’, then clicking SAVE. However, when I go back to ‘Shop Overview’ the tick button is not checked. I’m going to contact Spreadshirt directly about that.

    You also didn’t mention (here) how much the ‘Affiliate Commission’ pays or how to set the commission. Upon further review, I clicked the link and found it was 20%.

    We’ll see if sales increase. I’ve added it to my Tshirttool designer shop.
