I've got a silver plated Byzantine bracelet on eBay at the moment and had a question from an American user about how much it would cost in 9ct gold. I worked it all out and came up with a price of £80. Is this too much? I'll show you how I got to the cost:
£49.70 for the materials
£2.92 (+ a little more, $1 I think) for the paypal costs
£5.50 for the shipping (with insurance)
+ £11 (ROUGHLY) 2 hours of my time to order, make, package and post the item
leaving approx £10 to put back into more materials and in case any other
costs come up.
Does this sound unreasonable?
