Are selling penny books on amazon worth it?
After shipping, fees etc
I'm not sure how it all works but shipping is so expensive. We order something that is a small health product every couple of months and it is $9.99.
Some charities do it because selling the books for a penny put paying shipping and handling generates income for the firm, whether because the books are shipped by volunteers so shipping is actually profit or keeping the disabled or otherwise unemployed productive because they are working shipping books. In the latter case, the $0.50 to $1.00 for shipping above postage pays the person shipping the books.
And for book stores, they may sell it for a penny to get it off the inventory list before inventory taxes hit. Likewise, some of the "handling" money may generate revenue to pay staff that are otherwise unemployed.
