Definitely gonna have to create a website for long term sustainability cause these Amazon & Ebay fees are a lil greedy.

@LeVraiPapi @Grizzly @MMS

For the orders that you ship yourselves, do you buy shipping from the website like Ebay/Amazon/Stamps.com?

Not sure if it works but I know ebay works with ebates, so im wondering if i’d get cashback buying shipping through them. They already give a 5% discount anyway.
Right now I recommend ZonPages

Otherwise Shopify is your best bet

For shipping?
Oh I misread that. I still have all my fulfillment through FBA but I just read that Shopify is rolling out a fulfillment system with distributed warehousing. So there will be competition for those fees sooner than later.

Paypal Shipping. Endicia/Stamps.com is good for domestic packages but sucks when you try to create international shipping labels.

What kind of items are you guys selling? Are you guys buying from whole sellers?

I'm thinking about jumping into this.

you must be out your mind breh. Taking photos with a cell phone for your PL products ? Breh, tell me you not serious.

Well you know what you doing so...
Not dropping bread on professional photography until the rest of my products are in. They've been selling well on Ebay as I already have stock photos from my wholesaler.
