I keep reading "If it was a little cheaper, I'd have bought it!" and the only thing I can think is "...never worked sales, have you?"

I'm a sales person. My main product sells for 25 bucks. It sells for that amount because, after all the dust has settled, I make anywhere from 2 to 4 bucks profit on each sale (the dust being things like 'rent for the location' and 'payroll' and what not). Yet I have people every single day tell me how they'd buy five if I'd sell them for 10 bucks.

My response? "Oh goody. I'd sell just enough to have completely lost money on the sale! Exactly what I want!"

Are Z-Store ships expensive? Sure. But I wouldn't be surprised if they're priced in such a way to cover costs, and have only a few bucks profit left over. Sure, they *could* sell them cheaper...and make no profit. And if a business isn't making profit, they're not gonna stay open. It's called the free market. Perhaps people should study it a little before they talk about costs.
