Computing Retail order page costs

If you use the TrepStar retail order page buy now buttons, we handle collecting money from your customer.  We give them shipping/handling options and they pay that extra amount. Click here for detailed information.

For example, if you wanted to sell your product for $20.00, the following table shows you how much you would receive in net proceeds:

Example TrepStar Retail Order Page Net Proceeds Calculation:
Your currently set retail price for this product is $20.00. Based on this price, your retail order net proceeds will be:
Retail Price:

The retail price you set from within your project. We charge the customer this plus shipping/handling.

Your customer chooses a shipping method during the purchase process. We add that amount to your retail price to cover our shipping/handling costs so you don't pay them (your customer does).
Manufacture Cost:

The amount we charge you, the publisher, to manufacture this product (as currently configured).
Process Fee:

5.00% of $20.00. This covers the fees we are charged by our merchant provider.
Net Proceeds:

This is the amount TrepStar will owe you. You pay manufacture cost, and process fee. Your customer is charged extra to cover all shipping & handling.

When your customer is purchasing the product, the 2nd screen asks them to pick a shipping method.  They will pay this amount in addition to the retail price of 20.00

On the next page, it shows a summary of charges.  Notice how the customer is charged for s/h

In the end, the customer pays $23.23 for this product which covers shipping/handling.  As the publisher, you pay the manufacturing cost plus transaction fees (which we are charged as well and are passing on to you). cdDVDfulfillment FAQ Help and Search
