Pricing Kandi for Etsy?

baseballhater 2/18/2024 01:07 pm 303

Not here to debate the ethics of selling kandi. Poor widdle Bwandon who cannot currently work a normal job needs to make money somehow (womp)

Anyways what’s a fair price scheme? My friends say minimum wage but we have “good” minimum wage here + I am slow at making things so I don’t think that $16 for this:e5e43e8f36b2209f123d8b7ab4121dfe.jpg

Is fair. Mmmmmmmmmm and what about actual cuffs? This—4697637cb82da1552145e69c195d3a34.jpg

—took me about two point five hours. Which would be umumum like $40 maybe idk I like math but I’m not good at calculating. I digress. Too much!! But then there’s also the fact that it DOES take time to make all this and it DOES cost money for materials and I AM looking to turn a profit. Sorry. Blame capitalism (and Reagan).

So yeah. Looking for advice. Should I even sell anything at all? But I need cash… maybe time for me to find another venture

@xXNo_One_Cares_BearXx: Wait how are you setting your account up? You can make them for free and put up listings for 10 cents a month.

Calculating would be something like (note i'm not sure how much your supplies cost, this is an example)
lets say you get 100 beads for a dollar, each bead would be 1 cent. 50 yards string 5 dollars
200 beads in a cuff- 2 dollars + 4 yards- 40 cents --> 2.40
You want a profit, so lets say add at least .5 of the supplies cost. --> 3.60

And then there's the work! 3 hours , let's say 15 an hour, 45.
add it up, 48.6 MINIMUM. Don't undersell your time, especially for profit.

its fully reasonable and ethical, those are good prices, but i know what you mean cause most people arent willing to spend that much. its fuckin hard ]:

Yes, include the hours of work you put into pieces. Your time is valuable.

i feel like starting should be singles for 5 and small cuffs for 16 then go from there how yous see fit. 40 for a huge ass cuff that took you two hours is reasonable,tehyre paying for time and resources shits expensive. if anyone complains about ethics they can whine about it to a wall its way more unethical to ust take away a opportunity to amke money completley from sombody who is literally just a guy and not a company
