Are $1 products feasible? How about costs?

by Jeremy James 1 replies
Just curious. If I could devise a $1 product, how much would I lose to Paypal for fees? Also, would people purchase a $1 product? I thought of doing an audio download of a few funny personal stories, such as the time I drove a box truck into a bank, and maybe other ones too. I figured that I could get funny stories, and sell maybe a 5-10 minute block for $1. I'd like to fancy myself as a 21st century Jerry Clower, who, for those that don't know, was a very clean and family oriented comedian. I'd like to use that gifting in combination with the intenet to make some money, with no contracts, no records, no travelling, etc.


Oh, for those that are familiar with Jerry,
"Knock him out, John!"
"All I heard was Marcel and that chainsaw wumwumwmwumwumwumwumwuwum."
"There were my cousins Marcel, Unel, Birdell, Francel, Munel, and Uncle Versie and Aunt Pet."

    Hi Jeremy

    Can I give you a suggestion?

    Instead of selling for $1, make it $5... I will explain.

    Step 1: Set up a paypal subscription for 5 dollars (one time) and a trial period of 7 days.

    Step 2: On your sales page, explain that your visitors can download without paying. If they don't want to pay you, they can unsubscribe, and keep your product as a gift.

    Step 3: Promote your sales page with the new order link.

    The idea behind this:

    1: It takes the same effort to sell a $1 product vs. a $5 product.
    2. Most people who subscribed to get your download will forget to unsubscribe within 7 days, and paypal will bill them on the 8th day. When they get the paypal email saying they have paid their subscription, it is too late for them to unsubscribe.

    Hope this helps.
