Currently, Tees can serve around 200 orders in a day. Rajasa stated that Tees is currently focusing on the enhancement of its design quality and quantity. “We receive more than 1000 designs from 200 creators on a daily basis.

A couple of months ago, Tees got accessed through mobile devices 40 percent more often than ever. However, learning that the Live Editor feature can only be accessed through web/desktop at the moment, the traffic went back to 20 percent. “We focus our marketing on desktop because we have yet supported mobile devices. It makes our traffic decreased to 20 percent, and the total purchase through mobile devices remained at 5 percent,” Rajasa stated.
