I really need help, because I have problem and I I have no idea how to solve it. I mean an effective idea.
In the past few days I found a really good stuff, toys, which will be really good to make bundles. I also found a FBA prep company which has fine prices. I need this company because I’m living oversea.
So I started an order, wholesale, 100pcs to start. I create a listing and first shock was that enourmous fee, almost 13 Dollars from item which I’ll sell for 30 bucks. But I said OK, never mind, the margin will be little lower than I expected but still is it fine. But suddenly the wholesale company wrote that thay wants another 100 bucks for shipping to the prep company. I was little disappointed, but still I tried to move on with the order.
And there i came, the last hit what I get was another 100 bucks for this prep and bundling items and this price still don’t include the shipping to FBA.
So in this moment I guess that I should probably close the order, should I? Because after all this fees the margin is almost zero. And here comes time to my question, how you, guys are doing that you have profit (for example) 20 buck after all this fees? This is something what sound unachievable for me. unsure emoticon
Thank you in advance!
PS please don’t answer OA/RA, because this not the right way for me as a non-US citizen.

easier said if you have not transferred anything, just pull the plug. call the whole thing off. for one your manufacturer sounds like an asshole to start with. but it seems you did not do your homework properly, but atleast you know

Create a spreadsheet for easily calculating your margins. Account for wholesale cost, freight (sometimes this is more expensive than the product itself), import duties, prep and inspection, fba fees and giveaways & discounts.

First, do not give up, there is a future in this if you believe in it! I also had these worries 2 months ago. But you can learn by studying. I always sign an agreement with the Chinese suppliers (Proforma, a kind of an invoice) just in case they want to add more money after I transfer the first amount. Use PayPal when you pay, or do it through the AliBaba Trade Assurance scheme. All best!
