Shipping flags from China to the US can be difficult. There’s communication issues, currency problems, and a slew of errors. Add a $50 shipping fee and headaches are almost certain. I’m not complaining though – getting the same product from Canada would be $30 a flag.
If I order 10 flags, with a manufacturing price of $4 a flag and $50 shipping, this comes out as roughly $9 a flag. Meaning that to make my money back – I’d have to sell flags for $10 a piece. Not bad.
Of coarse, that’s worst case scenario. Keep in mind that I’m in competition with others selling the same/similar flags. And to be perfectly honest; Amazon prices seem like a fucking scam. They take 15% of my sale in addition to $39.99 a month. This means that I have to hustle to make my dough. Luckily, my flags are better.
Anyways, I’m still getting my foot in the door and so I’ll keep you in the loop.
This is just for fun, after all.
