I finally decided to put the shipping in my prices and do free shipping. Its really the only way to get shipping to come out correctly on Amazon. I will say I have never seen such a confusing way to do shipping as it is on Amazon. They really need to look at updating their shipping calculations.
The biggest thing I have found out is that you do not need to match any ones low price to sell there. I was really worried in the beginning because I would list something and see the lowest price (Amazon always shows you your competitors lowest price when you list) which is always ridiculously low. I thought no one would pay my price and I refused to lower them. I am in this to make a profit not give stuff away!
Well I am happy to report that I do sell there at good prices. Like Ebay, feedback is everything on Amazon. Once I started getting really good feedback people happily bought from me and paid the higher price. Looking at the low price competitors most have mediocre feedback.
And I am so happy to report that I started selling our mini parachute cord jig kits on there and yesterday the kit made it to number 34 in arts, crafts, jewelry making kits!!! I was ecstatic and doing a happy dance. But I will say we are exhausted. We have had to have our adult kids come help make jigs to keep up with demand. We have sold 110 jigs/jig kits in 6 days!
