Don’t forget calculations on profit should always include the cost or your item, listing fees, transaction fees, packaging fees and shipping fees. If you’re not including all of them you won’t get an accurate idea of how much money you’re actually making on a sale. In ecommerce it’s not uncommon to see a profit of 10% to 50% on an item. If it’s less than that after you’ve deducted all of your selling fees you should re-consider selling that item.
