Re: Sell diapers

Some diapers are heavy to ship (especially prefolds and flats if there are more than a few).
paypal fees cost the seller 2.9%. packaging cost $1-2, plus the cost of shipping. So say the seller wants a $10 return from a diaper, she pays $1 for a mailer and $3 for shipping. The cost would have to be $15 ppd. That how most people do it for shipping within the US.

But say someone want a $10 return on 6 prefolds. She still has to factor the price of the mailer and paypal fees into her asking price, but if shipping is going to be $6-$10 depending on where it's going, it makes more sense to ask for price + shipping.
