    Free shipping on ebay works like this.

    Product price = $1. Shipping cost = $1. ===> magic secret formula WSO hidden super juice===> Product price = $2. Shipping price = $0

    Product cost = $0.2. Shipping cost = $1. You make $0.8 profit.

    Free shipping is just marketing..

    Buy Mass little accesories for mobile or others.

    Example: buy 100 covers for iPhone 5 & Sells them to the unit.

    Only problem if it misfires :p
    @OP
    I am not an ebay marketer, but I do buy from ebay frequently. What I have seen sellers do is multiply the units. For example if you go to ebay and search for "rat glue trap" , you won't even get one deal (a fair one ofcourse) which has only 1 trap. Most of them are selling 2-5 traps packaged in one. That way, you will be able to keep a good margin as I believe.

    honestly first class mail will be your cheapest option but it'll be over a dollar $2-5 depending on weight and location. You really have to consider costs before listing an item on ebay even if you provide free shipping. Free shipping is just to attract customers, the auction starting price should include the cost to ship it or you'll not make a profit.

    Find other sellers in your location, agree to ship your items together under either one of your businesses'. This is done by contacting USPS or UPS, DHL, FedEx, etc and saying "Hey, I ship 640 items a month that weigh less than 14 ounces, we would like to receive lower rates or we will ship carriers because they are offering me ___% off"

    Don't quote me, but I THINK if you set up an account with reserve funds with USPS.com and you ship 400 packages a month that qualify for First Class Mail, you can ship items that are 1-6 ounces for like $0.87 cents with tracking. Its been a couple years since I first started negotiating shipping rates. There WERE other little things that they gave discounts for, such as being an eBay seller but I believe they might have discontinued that.

    Make + $1 or $2 profits by items, it's better. Accessories Phone, Mass Piercings...
    Working for me, Sent in the letter because it's little items :)

    1 or 2$ profits by items, it's noob but for 50 or 100 or 250 items ==> 50$ or 100$ or 250$
    Create Excel File to see your profits :)

    I can't really find any place to ship for a dollar, shipping something that weighs less than 3oz costs me about $1.69. Unless you do media mail, which takes awhile to get to the buyer. Or maybe sending it in an envelope with a stamp on it.
