Create Space Shipping Costs

Post by dub » Tue Mar 16, 2010 4:39 am

Create Space (Amazon company) is quick and easy and cheap ... except for shipping. Their current policy charges a writer the same shipping charge for one book as 100 books multiplied by the cost of 1 book shipping. Example: If one book ships at $3.00, then 100 books ship at $300.00. Cost to publish may only be $2.50, but shipping drives up costs. Oh, real cost of shipping 100 normal 200 page novels - less than $60.

Beware ...
