  • Amazon Wants to Help App Developers Find a New Source of Revenue

    On Wednesday, the world's foremost eCommerce hub tossed a new bone to mobile app developers in hopes of giving devs a new source by which to earn greater revenue.

    Meet "Merch by Amazon," a new self-service program designed to help devs "increase revenue through the sale of branded t-shirts designed by you and produced, sold and shipped by Amazon."

    It's Amazon's answer to CafePress but with a direct focus on app/game developers.

    "With the print on demand service, you sell only the t-shirts your customers want to buy," Amazon says. "You never have to worry about inventory or out-of-pocket costs. For every t-shirt sold, you earn a royalty. The more t-shirts sold, the higher the royalty is."

    Although the ability to create shirts isn't limited to app developers (anyone can create and sell apparel), developers of games are a great group for Amazon to target given the demand from developers to create merchandise to support their branded games and mobile content.
