Minimizing Fees when Selling

Post by achouza » Sun Sep 08, 2019 11:30 pm

Hey swirlers,
I am planning a big release for my label in a few weeks and I am trying to decide where to sell through, I was thinking discogs but their fees are nuts, then I thought bandcamp, but they take 10% plus you have to pay paypal fees.... what do you all use to sell?

One thing to note is that I am selling two different items, one is a very expensive item at $440 *(about 90 of them) and then individual albums at $25 (about 120 of them). The good thing is that bandcamp caps the fee on the high priced boxset, but even at the $10 cap, plus the 1.9% fee, thats $18 bucks in fees for each one sold

Any ideas on how to sell with less fees?

I looked into something similar last year and Big Cartel was the cheapest if I remember rightly, they take less if you use their own payment options and if you're only selling a few different items.
