I would just like to say that I am just a guy with a wife and 3 kids to support, I live in a council house and have a second hand car.

when I first started selling these sim they sold for around £6- £8 until many other sellers started dropping prices to out sell other sellers, in the end this killed the market now can't sell these for much more than £5.

I saw my sales go up from just a few a day to more than 20 in just a few hours, I thought I finaly was in luck and my problems over, so I took a gamble and increased my price from £3.79 to £5.79 and I will tell you why, These sims cost me $300 (£196) for 100pcs that is the cheapest I can find them at wholesale, so work out how much I am making on each sim and bear in mind I only sell around 25 to 30 of these a week if I am lucky!

Price cost to me for each sim= £1.96p
eBay fee = 12p
Paypal Fee= 35p
First Class Stamp= 46p
packeging= 10p
and don't forget my time and the fuel cost to take them to the post office= 20p

Total Cost before any profit= £3.19p

Now please tell me if I was wrong to increase the price?

Not wrong to increase your price mate...wrong to come on here and breakdown your costs, and whine about it to your potentially biggest current market...wonder who'll be shopping elsewhere now?

Just my £2.60 worth, no offence like....

Yes credit for explaining yourself,Would have been nice if you came on here and offered them a bit cheaper without going through ebay though that would have saved you a bit.Have you tried one in a monte carlo yourself yet.

I don't think anybody cares that he made a slight spelling error.

This guy took the time to come on here and explain why he bumped the price up, provided support to those having problems, and offered refunds (without asking for the sim back) to those for whom the sim isn't working. He's done more than could be expected, and certainly more than most ebay traders would have done.

For a while, it worked on my spare 3 sim, but, then died Posted Image. Oh well, these things are sent to try up I suppose.

I'm going to wait till the 3 months are up, and get my unlock out of orange.
