I'm selling porn, alright.


That's .25 per DVD, .25 per case, .25 per cover print, and .50 per DVD label. Plus 1.30 to 2 for shipping.

Spending 3.25 yeilds 400 to 500% of profit. Not counting credit card processing fee and ebay listing fee, as well as final value fee.


So it's 300 to 400 % profit.

About $30-$40 per item. I sell about 25-30 these days. My wife says I need to see the sun more, but otherwise she's not complaining

I always try to maintain 100& profit, before expenses, i.e. Double your money-then back out ebay/pp fees, other cost of sales expenses, so mine is prob, av. 70-82%

When we were power selling we didnt look at profit per item per say, we looked at daily profits from buy it nows and ending items. We liked to double our money but looked at the chart for daily profits.
Many times we would sell 75-100 items per day with buy it now and would have a large group of items ending every day of the week.
So for us, it was daily profits and monthly total profits we looked at because we knew if we sold xx amount we would make xx per day and per month.

i usually dont sell anything unless i think i can get at least 40-50% profit of it as a minimum. particular items i get for around $40, usually i can sell them at $250-400 no problems. really depends on what your selling, the amount of work you do etc.

if you have a decent account with about 50 feedback and a paypal account, you know how much money i can make on it in one day?
the sky's the limit, but the thing is you can NOT get greedy, for ex. if your making $2000.00 profit a day and you get greedy which by the way most people do get greedy they double their auctions and 80% of the time something goes wrong and they loose everything.

Whoa... that's one of the reasons I got rid of my Mustang GT and I might get rid of my Nissan Titan...

The summer will be with $4 a gallon gas… It's just a mater of time.

In Oz, I only pay US50c. for LPG. That does OK for my needs. The new 4x4 will take
diesel and that will cost US$1.40. I am going to bi**ch about that.

Big time because I quoted the price per liter and not per gallon. Sorry.
