Teespring has officially integrated with YouTube!
This means that you can have your merchandise appear directly below your YouTube videos. Viewers in France, Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and the United States will be able to browse and purchase your official merch (this will open up to more countries soon!)*
With this tool, you can sell merch by providing a seamless point of sale for your community right on your video pages.
*If you are a creator outside of the countries listed above, you won't see your merch shelf after setting it up. If you are unsure if the feature is working, ask a US-based friend or reach out to our support team at [email protected]*

First, you must complete the onboarding process described above through your YouTube Studio Beta to sign into Teespring to create a Teespring Store ID. It is also important to copy and paste your Teespring Store ID into your YouTube Studio Beta to finalize the connection. Afterwards, you can reference your Store ID in three locations: 1. You will receive an email from Teespring containing your Store ID as soon as you sign in or sign up through the YouTube Studio Beta. 2. While signed into your Teespring account, visit teespring.com/youtube/gmc to bring up the original Store ID page. 3. In your Teespring account settings.
No, this is a free service provided by YouTube and Teespring and it does not detract from your AdSense revenue.
Nope! This is a completely free program and it will not interfere with your ad revenue. In fact, program participants are paid a monthly YouTube creator bonus – an additional $1 per every item you sell through the merch shelf.
No, this program has only been rolled out to viewers in the United States, which means your viewers abroad won’t see it. To make sure they get a chance to purchase your merch, we highly recommend that you keep doing all the great things you’ve been doing.
The integration is currently available for select creators in the YouTube Partner Program and who have more than 10,000 subscribers.
The YouTube merch shelf will display up to 12 products, selected from your active, non-private Teespring listings. If you have multiple colors, the featured color will be displayed.
Yes you can! You can select the first 4 products displayed on your shelf at any given time using the ‘Integrations’ tab in your Teespring dashboard. Otherwise, designs will be ordered based on sales, with the most popular designs being displayed first. However, we’ll prioritize designs launched in the previous 10 days over older designs.
No, you cannot exclude certain videos to exclude from the merch shelf.
No, the same merch will appear in the shelf under each video.
We share data about your Teespring account, including number of purchases, number of page visits, retail price of items sold, total revenue and profit, cancelled orders, and whether the page visit came from the merch shelf. We do not share any personally identifiable information with YouTube.
Products featured in the merch shelf must comply with YouTube’s Community Guidelines. If your design is listed on Teespring but not on the merch shelf it may have been removed due to content concerns. If you recently uploaded the design to Teespring it can take up to 14hrs to show up on YouTube.
