If you buy in bulk, shipping and supplies should cost you almost $2.00 exactly.

If he is giving you 85% of the sale price as a top rated seller, he would lose money on any item that sells for under $40. He would make 4.9% of the total sale price above $40. So if he sells a $100 item, he would make 4.9% of $60 which comes out to $2.94.

He has to do serious volume and/or move a lot of high end cards to make it worth his while which it seems like he does.

I thought it was flat 10% now for auctions/BIN, and paypal would be 2.9%?

"Blowoutcards is a messageboard filled with experts on Ping pong. These highly trained experts told us they spoke to the President of the United States Mr. Haiku and he claims the card is fake since he faked it himself. Our 2 sources (easter bunny and a unicorn with 2 legs) explained this hobby is filled with crooks." -Unknown
