Re: How do they make any $$?

Wow, sometimes I only make $3-$4 but yeah, you're right if that is all the profit, that's not worth it.
I always try to ship through PayPal. I agree with the PP, it costs 19 cents for DC through PayPal and 90 cents if you get it at the PO. And I don't usually ship Priority unless the buyer wants it or the item is over 13 ounces. I always calculate $3 for shipping and PayPal for items I can send First Class and then add that to what I want to get for the item. I tend to just eat a bit of the cost if the buyer buys multiple items and I end up shipping Priority.
