Hello just spent three hours repricing my in boxed product with is books ,
The plateform I sell on is Pango off Goggle,
Some act like it isn’t obvious to them that books are a product,
For those people its like they are in a sense pricing to be saintly.
They under price those of us trying to run ligitimate businesses and in turn make a profit. They simply want to literately clean their shelves to buy more.. I say if they want to give their books away at a dollar a pop. Good fir them but do it in your yard no on line.
Look at it this way they could not survive selling at $1 that gives them .60. If they live a distant from the post office like me they haven’t a printer.They also have to buy the envelops to mail book in. I told one lady if you must give them away take them to your local library. I’m from Waukon,Iowa once a month those books are sold by the bag or at ten cents each.
A six dollar book sold earns me $4.80. Gas is $3.57.9 i drive sixteen miles round trip..,
I changed all $6-7,
Collector series to $8,
Dog books and mysterys also to $8,
All my books are in good condition mostly mint,
Prices of Smithsonian I had lowered for summer rose back up.
Giving away a book for a book collectable is idiotic!
Sure I want stock to move, however this is my time to shine, I know sales,and merchandising,
Business isn’t keeping up with the.Jones its all about profit from product,
Just because my show room floor in on the internet,
I’m not a smoker,my books clean and are out the door by the next day,
I have only had two mistakes sinc e April , I had trouble with one guy,
