He still has to take the order, fill the order, address the order, and take it to the PO. His time is worth SOMETHING, isn't it? Otherwise, it's a hobby and not a business.
It's not an argument, it's a discussion. I also think something fell off a truck....LOL!

Paypal fees only apply if you have specific account types. Does eBay charge fees on small items? If so, what is the fee on $3.99? 3 cents? I only remember eBay charging me one time, and I have sold a couple thousand dollars worth of stuff on there over the years. I thought the reason so many sellers started to mark the item price really low but charge $400 shipping is to avoid any fees from eBay? lol
Time is relative, if he has nothing better to do, and/or he's addressing and mailing stuff all day anyway, the 30 seconds it takes to slap a "sticker" on an envelope is minimal. I know, I used to mail anywhere from 3 to 100 pieces of mail/packages per day here, and while it's not the greatest part of the day, and not very "profitable" since my time was better spent doing repairs, it still didn't take long and I didn't really lose any money doing it. Of course I type fast, and the printer is fast, and I can enter every piece of postage I need at one time, and print all at once while I'm doing something else, then come back later and slap the stamps on the envelopes and hand them to the mailman. I spent maybe 15 minutes of my day preparing the largest batch of outgoing mail, so no real loss. Nobody HAS to go to the post office if they don't want to, unless you have international shipping (which unfortunately was the case for me all too often).
Or maybe he has kids, and forces them to do his mailing for him. Slave labor...
Still think he may have found a "lost" shipment though, otherwise why not sell for 2 or 3 times that price?
Local shop I used to work at years ago still sells them for $5 each, but doesn't mail them anywhere... His reason for selling them fairly cheap is because it is a way to get people IN the store where they will look at other stuff and might make a bigger purchase. When you're the only store selling a part, or selling that part for 1/3 or less than anyone else around you, you tend to dominate that market.
