Hello,

Wow, it’s June already. How time flies!

I’ve been very busy the past few days. I’ve been tuning AI prompts on PODtomatic V2 and working on its payment system because we’ll accept new members soon.

Also, I had to deal with some accounting issues for my company yesterday. (Life of an entrepreneur, right?)

That’s why I’m sending this email a bit late.

Alright, let’s look at some stats from PODtomatic V2.

Here’s the stat I captured on June 1, 2024.

It shows the order stats for May.

We made around 235 orders in the past 30 days.

This is double compared to what we did in April.

Here’s the order stats for April.

So…

April – 103 sales

May – 235 sales

We’re still averaging 1 order for every 2,300 uploads.

Note that many of us realized our products couldn’t be sold because of GTIN Exemption issues or long transit times. These issues have been fixed for most people.

If we didn’t have these issues, we would have made more orders.

But never mind. It’s not Q4, so we still have time to fix and grow our inventory for more sales in Q4.

Anyway, I’m not sure the number of orders will increase a lot this month because it’s a slow time for most print-on-demand products we upload.

I usually uploaded only coffee mugs, shot glasses, and travel mugs in the past. These products don’t sell well during Q3 because it’s summer in the US.

Now, V2 will upload more varied products like tumblers (people like cool water during the summer, so maybe this will sell well?)camping mugs (people go camping in summer, I guess?)braceletskeychains, etc.

I hope these various products will keep us making good sales this month and also in the upcoming Q3.

Let’s see.

Alright, that’s the stats from the overall system.

Let’s check my own stats. I see a lot of improvement in my account.

This was captured early today.

I have made over 34 orders now with PODtomatic V2. (Actually, 34+2 because I made two orders from the testing account, so they’re not showing here)

V2 has been uploading products for me for about 2.5 months.

If we calculate roughly, it seems like it’s making around 12-13 orders per month for me.

But let’s look at the sales closely each month.

March – 6 sales

April – 8 sales

May – 14 sales

June (6 days) – 6 sales

You can see that most sales were made in May. Also, if it keeps the same rate, V2 should make 20+ sales for me this month. I’ll update you later.

The number keeps increasing every month.

This is because there are more products in my account every month.

V2 uploads 200 products a day or 6,000 products a month for me, and these products can sell as long as my Amazon account is active.

Alright, since this email is a bit late (I should have sent this at the beginning of June), let me show you the latest stats from today.

PODtomatic V2 has made 400 orders so far from around 660k uploads.

That’s around 1 order for every 1,650 uploads.

As you can see, this number keeps getting lower every month.

This is because we have more products in our system.

When old products start making sales, they get some perks from Amazon and make you more sales later.

When new products get older and ranked by Amazon, they will start making sales for you soon.

Selling print-on-demand on Amazon is easy.

You just need to upload new products every day.

This is what we built PODtomatic V2 to handle.

Alright, that’s it for this email.

I need to get back to work now.

Talk soon,

​—Bank K.
