New! Zazzle Create-a-Product API

August 28, 2006

Introducing the newest marketing tool from Zazzle – the Create-a-Product API. Now you can enable visits to your web site or blog to automatically generate customized products from any image or text on your web site. And even better, all purchases made from your Create-a-Product API links will earn you 17% in commission.*


  • Users on your site can turn ANY image or piece of text into a product with a simple click of a link and instantly they are within the Zazzle design tool.
  • Want all products to have some of your brand on it? Add your logo or other text to each product created from your site or leave it blank – its up to you!
  • Choose from any one of Zazzle’s products including Custom Apparel, Real U.S. Postage, Custom Mugs and Custom Cards!
  • Earn 17% on each sale!

Zazzle API

Implementing the Create-a-Product API is easy and takes roughly 20 minutes.

  1. Set up your contributor and associates account on Zazzle
  2. Create your product template to define how your products will be generated
  3. Create the links and add them to your site!
