The instructor was thoughtful and thorough is his teaching approach. He would give remarks and recommendations that he thinks will be beneficial and helpful to the student based on the sales results and technical issues he encountered during the whole T-shirt design creation, integration and sales process, which I find extremely helpful.

Amanda14 June 2019

There was a lot of great info in there, thank you for creating this! while it is an older video, the information still applies, and has great resources!

Alessandro14 July 2018

the course is amazing, learned so much from it. the only hickup is that we cannot download it on our PC to access it offline

Stephen7 June 2018

Great course! Absolutely everything I needed to get started with Merch by Amazon. Before starting this course I was nervous and clueless about starting my Merch by Amazon business (even though I've been selling with FBA for years). Now that I've completed the course I'm confident and excited to get started.

Justin28 March 2018

So this course seems to have been created at the beginning of Merch. A lot has changed since its creation and the instructor has not updated the course content to reflect the changes in the platform of the strategies to become successful.

Jeffrie6 March 2018

Really good information that expands beyond first class in the series. Some information is rehashed from the first class and some stuff is out date now. However, lots of valuable information to get you rocking forward on Amazon Merch.

Sammy27 February 2018

This is a great course. So full of real world information and walkthroughs. You can go through videos several times or slowly for many step by step examples. A real roadmap to getting your shirt publishing business started!

Md15 February 2018

I am very much satisfied with this course. Hope to get those kinds of course in future. If any new course launched please send me the udemy link via sobuj.mofs@gmail.com. Thanks, Masuk Sarker Batista sir.

Estelle7 February 2018

Simply just excellent! Chris covered so many different angles to help increase your success with Merch. Time well spent!

Massimo31 January 2018

La persona che parla, è preparata, ma parla molto velocemente e anche i sottotitoli sono ovviamente più veloci nel cambiare, e uno non ha il tempo talvolta di capire tutto perfettamente

Alan30 January 2018

NO fluff or filler, all great info. I will always buy from someone that gets to the point and puts out great information.

Dale5 January 2018

I like the content so far, but much of what I've seen is about uploading and the new Amz updates. I need to know where/how to start making a shirt.

Kaleb14 November 2017

I think this is a great start to the Merch by Amazon adventure. Thank you for all the useful content.

Robert18 August 2017

Answered alot of questions. Learned some stuff. But its outdated. I would have given it a 5 star raiting if it was up to date.

Alex3 August 2017

The information is great. I have learned allot about how to find ideas, list and optimize merch by Amazon t-shirts. The only quam is that Chris could talk a little louder in the videos and there is a bit of background noise but it's really not that big of a deal.
