I know Voat merchandise has been requested quite a lot in the past, most recently here, but we never really had the means to launch and manage our own merchandise store... I just tested teespring.com and created Voat May 2016 campaign to test the waters. Teespring, if there is enough interest, could be something we can consider using in the future. Teespring operates the store and handles everything for us, and we get a profit cut. If you want to buy an item from this campaign, you can use "voatgoat" promo code to get a small discount at checkout.
Also, we planned to work this weekend on significantly reducing our operating costs by shuffling some servers around and deploying new software, so we'll probably have to unplug a few things here and there, hopefully with as little downtime as possible. We will keep you posted on twitter.
Edit: This merchandise campaign seems to be going a lot better than I expected. When I created the campaign I set the goal to 50 units and was hoping we would sell out in the next 3-4 days, but so far we've already sold 39 units in 3 or 4 hours... Our profits from the 39 units sold so far are estimated to be around $260. I really hope you enjoy the stuff you ordered and I thank you for supporting us and for choosing to wear the Voat logo.
Edit 2: Well this went far beyond my expectations! Holy goat! We'll receive almost $2k thanks to your purchases. 100% of this will go towards our hosting fees. I don't know what else to say but thank you, you guys are super awesome and this scares me :p Anyways, I'm really hoping to see some of you in the wild and you can be sure I'll come and say hi if this ever happens :)
