Question About Selling Inserts/Coupons

Today my friend gave me 75 Red Plum and 75 Smart Source from 1/10. she gave me quite a few for 1/3 also (I posted them already) and told me she will continue to give me free inserts from her paper route. So I am going to have multiple extra inserts every week now.

I don't know how to sell them! How much for each insert? How much is shipping? Should I sell them as coupons not inserts?

I tried selling the 1/3 inserts but ran into issues with shipping and that people were selling them for cheaper. I don't need 150 inserts so I really want to sell them but I need to give my buyer a good deal and still get a good deal for me also.

Any tips, advice, or hints?

It depends on how much time you have since cutting, clipping coupons is labor intensive. Its too much work for little profit, IMO. If you have lots of inserts, its best to sell them as complete inserts and make sure to post what coupons are available in your inserts. Coupons in inserts are NOT the same for all regions so that most people sell their full inserts for .15 per inserts BUT they are not listing what is in these inserts. Many times, the buyers complain after they find out the inserts are just full of junk ads and very few useful coupons. They felt ripped off but its not completely seller's fault since the buyers didn't ask. they just assumed that all inserts have the same coupons that they read on the 'net. WRONG assumption

its easier if you just mail them priority envie/box with flat rate postage so you don't have to weigh them. aside from that, you can get free DC if you pay postage online plus free pick-up from your mail carrier so you don't have to drive to the PO.

if you trade/sell by the coupon, that may be labor and time intensive but it may give you more profit compared to selling them as complete inserts.

whatever you decide, good luck!

Good thread.
I have also recently came across the weekly "jackpot of inserts" from my paper guy. I was wondering this types of things myself. I have traded coupons for awhile now and I really enjoy trading/selling etc. Now, I get way more than I need and I just hope its not more than I can keep up with.

I think I am going to sell them for $0.15 each and use flat rate shipping. I know a flat rate envelope here is $4.90 (thats with tax and all) and a box is $11.

So I figure 10 or less inserts then I will use flat rate envelope and 10+ inserts a flat rate box. Sounds fair to me.
