Chapter 9 - Cost of Doing Business

Another component of effective pricing is consideration for the cost of doing business. Not all costs are obvious a new seller as initial listing fees may not be charged for a period of weeks, the shipping costs may fluctuate from order to order and unexpected costs like returns may not occur immediately.

Costs to consider:

  • Sourcing
  • Storage
  • Shipping
  • Packaging
  • Listing Fees
  • PayPal Fees
  • Staffing
  • Marketing
  • Shrink (returns, lost or damaged Inventory)
  • Tax
