The Spreadshirt icon links through to a branded shop, where fans can pay in one of 7 currencies and send merchandise to over 200 countries; giving the UK’s YouTuber’s a potentially global audience for their merchandise. T-shirts are the biggest sellers for YouTubers, but phone cases are very popular for new designs.
Philip Rooke, CEO of Spreadshirt, commented “UK YouTubers are amongst our most savvy sellers. They know that their fans want a bit of customisation, right size or colour, and that they like limited editions. Our technology means they can put up a design for an hour maybe or only make a small number available. Because it’s print-on-demand, YouTubers can afford to keep adding and changing designs, seeing what gets ordered and what doesn’t. It gives them lots of information about their fans and encourages them to come back and see what’s recently been posted”.
