With the rising costs of shipping added to the ever escalating fee prices, why would an aspiring entrepreneur continue to sell on Amazon, eBay or Etsy ? I for one experienced an exorbitant 33% average fee charge for all of my sales on Amazon during Q4. This is a HUGE chunk of the profits in my eyes and they just raised fees once again, as expected, in February !
This should make any online seller raise their eyebrows & ask the age old questions:
- How can I be more profitable?
- Am I even in the right game?
- Is all of this hard work worth it ?
Now of course, we all know these are the ‘the costs of doing business’ , however, there may be a solution for the entrepreneur who wants to take that next step away from the chaos.
