You have to just LOVE a potential buyer, who complains that you charge $2 more for shipping on ebay then the actual cost is to ship the item. He sure is factoring in how much (little) your time is worth. People forget that when an item is manufactured the costs of manufacturing is not just for the raw materials, but for the labor and cost to transport that item, etc to the retail store. Why is it then when I go to sell something, my time and cost of supplies are totally factored out of the equation?
An ever better example is if I buy something on discount from a local retail store and then add a few dollars to cover my costs and make a few bucks for reselling it, aka capitalism. It flabbergasts me at the audacity of some people who totally discredit the time, and expenses (car, gas, etc) you have when going to purchase said item on sale to re-sell.
So I pose this question to the SF community. How much is YOUR time worth?
***This is not a poll for how much you get paid per hour at your every day job (I am sure it is a lot more then $20/hr for almost everyone here), but a general opinion, how much you factor the cost into selling an item***
