Jande How to charge postage for a CD? (11) RE: How to charge postage for a CD? 11 May 01


SeanM: Thanks for the suggestions. Your advice about the International Postage Coupons made me remember International Money Orders (see my reply to Joe).

As far as "profit" goes. I'd feel funny charging more than 6 or 7 dollars(US) for a CD with only two songs on it. I think the last batch of CDRs we bought (100 top of the line) cost a dollar each. The labeling costs around two dollars. The case is fifty cents. The packaging costs, I think, are two or three dollars.

CDR..............................$ 1.00
Jewelcase........................ .50
CD&J-case labelling.............. 2.00 (apprx.)
Mailing packaging................ 2.50 (apprx.)
Total CD-making costs............. 6.00
Subtract price charged............ 7.00 (?)

Profit..(?)....................... 1.00

[sigh...]

Help! Anybody got a better way of doing this?

I really feel I need to do this so that I have some incentive to get back to recording my songs. I've been trying to do this for over fifteen years and haven't succeeded yet. I refuse to give up entirely!

Thanks for your encouraging help.
