World's Smallest Shockers For Sale

Well, not really, but I am going to make and sale tiny shockers on ebay soon, I just need a few questions before I start making, and selling them.

  • Do you wanted the shocker naked (Like in the picture below) and make your own container for them?
  • Do you want the shocker to be packed up in a film canister or box container with a battery holder and a switch?
  • And the most important of all - How much are you willing to pay for them? I need an answer to that!

And here is the link to make the shockers.. Build a World's Smallest Electronic Shocker!

You need to work out your costs, plus energy, wear and tear on tools, postage, packing and time - how long does it take to make them (including packaging and walking to the post box), and how much do you value your time (dollar an hour? ten? fifty?)?

That will give you your base cost, and what you add on top of that will be your income.

I know you're giving yourself an income twice (time, plus the extra), but consider - what happens if you get so many orders that you need help to put them together? How will you pay the help? Answer: the part of the cost you have accounted for as "time".

When you work out your "income", consider - do you expect these things to pay your life expenses? How many do you plan or hope to make and sell? If they are just for pin money, or you can makes loads in an hour, you can add on a small profit. If you need them to pay your medical bills, or you take half a day to make one, you'll have to add on a large profit.
that sounds way to complicated. I'd say around 7 USD

Okay, through all of your questions, I think about £5 for each 'naked' shockers, is that too expensive or too cheap? An the reason I need money is to buy my self a new mac computer. My old mac computer I am using right now is about to die, it has about 6 months of its life left.. :(
I've an idea - ebay a couple, see what you get, and use that as a guide price.

Okay, I will try that, but, I am asking what do YOU think?
Since I already know your raw materials are free, I'd say a fiver sounds good.

Yeah, I am thinking $5 is good, my dad also suggested 5 too!
that sounds resonable I think you can go a biut higher than that, but I think 5 euros is good. 5 doesn't seem like a lot, 6 dollars seems like a lot. Believe me, the Ipod app store has gotten me a couple times (lol). where are you going to get the parts from?

Yes, you can do that, thanks for asking! :)

Hmm, if you are going to make that shocking marker, you might want to keep it hidden from little kids as they love markers...

Ebay can really be a hit or miss. Ususally, consumers that shop on ebay are searching for something from a brand name company, or something that is popular amongst consumers. So, what I am saying is, for something as genuine and unique as this shocker, it will be hard finding people to bid on it.
