Everyone on Etsy has at least these variables that cut into their profit margin:
- Etsy listing fee: .20
- Etsy commission: 3.5% of item sale price [not shipping]
- PayPal fee: .30 + 2.9% of total reciept [item+shipping]*
For a $1.50 item, the actual recieved money will be .89. Wow. That's only 59% of the sale price. So make sure your low ticket items are worth it!
