Businesses and bloggers, today is your lucky day! CafePress has announced the launch of PressIt, an innovative e-commerce plug-in that creates opportunities for bloggers and other small online businesses to seamlessly monetize their original content without relying solely on outside advertising placements that may detract from a site’s unique focus.
PressIt is a free, downloadable button that can be added to any Web page. It synchronizes a site’s proprietary Web content with the CafePress product ecosystem, enabling bloggers and other small online businesses to generate revenue from a blog’s original content by allowing visitors create fully customizable print-on-demand products through CafePress.
How it Works:
- Blogger or Business signs up to become a CafePress affiliate.
- Downloads and installs PressIt button to Web page content they believe may generate unique e-commerce product revenue (images, graphics, logos, text).
- Visitors who click the PressIt button will be able to see selected content on a selection of CafePress’ over 500 base products – including t-shirts, mugs, posters or tote bags.
- Visitors place an order and, if completed and approved, the content owner earns an affiliate commission from CafePress.

Autism Awareness Month is right around the corner and by community vote CafePress will once again be partnering with two autism awareness and aid organizations to help them raise funds for autism education and research.
CafePress will be splitting 10% of proceeds* from the sale of eligible autism awareness products to Autism Speaks and The Autistic Self Advocacy Network. Interested in being a part of this worthwhile endeavor? All you have to do as designers is tag your autism awareness-related designs with “AUTISM2013” to ensure that 10% of the sale price goes to these organizations.
If designing products isn’t really your thing, don’t worry. You can still make a difference by purchasing one of the eligible products on our website or sharing our Autism Awareness campaign during the month of April with your friends. You can also learn more about autism and how to help these organizations further by visiting their websites at:
These are some easy (and important) ways to show your support for a terrific cause. So please, make an impact and join us today—get involved, start tagging and sharing with your friends!
*An amount equal to 10% of the retail price for all products tagged with “AUTISM2013″ sold through the CafePress.com Marketplace during April 1, 2013 through April 30, 2013 will be donated to the following two charities selected by the CafePress community. Proceeds will be equally split between Autism Speaks and Autism Self Advocacy Network.
