By COA I mean a private nursery certificate that has 2 sides, 1 side of care instructions, 1 side with a picture of the babe and their details, and is laminated
Sweet Mia arrived, I can’t wait to start on her! The lighting makes her look superrrrrr orange, sorry, it’s pretty gloomy in Florida right now!
I also have created a price chart, do you guys think it’s a reasonable price chart?
Interesting prive list. So you charge for box packing $25.00 and COA $5.00? And purpose of that to send it to a customer?
I enjoy seeing the business aspect of this hobby.
Is this something you send to the customer?
I’m confused, is someone ordering twins? Is that the price for one baby? or 2? And if it is an order, why does it need to be listed on ebay? And why charge $5 for the COA, wasn’t it already printed and came with the kit?
My understanding she is embedding her profit as x 2.
It isn’t a custom order, it’s just how I calculate a profit.
The COA is a private nursery certificate, which has 2 sizes, 1 with the baby’s details and a picture, the other side with care instructions And it is laminated.
The box packing includes clothing, blanket, pacifier, etc
Just some nice stuff to go home with the babe
If I get a custom order I don’t include eBay fees or anything, it’s just there if it’s a baby I make and list for sale on there, sometimes I sell babes locally or on Facebook
The price chart is very interesting! I should make something like that.
I think it’s wise to create such a list. But the COA fee……not so much. However, please make sure to include in your shipping cost…all the material that is by to package the baby securely. Bubble wrap, tissue paper, Styrofoam, box and ext. There is also a big gap in the pricing for mohair/premium mohair, revisit that cost.
The COA is referring to the birth certificate she makes for her dolls and a care sheet
A lot of artist short change themselves by not making sure that they include the cost of ALL materials when determining the price for the baby. She may have a cost for varnish but to be sure she wouldn’t send a baby out without varnish…she’s just make sure that price is include in determining the cost of her baby. That’s my opinion.
If it cost you, then that cost is passed onto the customer. No exceptions. You want to be profitable…you can’t operate in the negative.
Ok…great. She’s charging for the paper and ink she used to create such documents! Awesome.
If I charged for matte varnish I would double my price… it’s a pita!!! lucky for them it’s included.
