On pricing... Amazon charges 3rd party sellers 15% off the top...Shipping is the same..assuming a credit card transaction fee of 3%...I can set the price 12% lower on my own site and keep the same profit...or split the difference :)...win win for me and my customers.

However...the biggest problem we have with Amazon is their return policy....which they encourage customers to abuse.

So yeah...we sell on Amazon... but the price is quite a bit higher and we are doing everything we can to push sales to other channels
