Here’s a chart showing the breakdown of what it costs to ship and send a Free* Generate Kindness sticker. Spoiler alert: it’s $.68 in the US ($1.81 internationally), and doesn’t include monthly operational costs like shopify, email and web hosting.
With over 150,000 pending requests for stickers, that’s not pocket change! See? A lot of a little bit sure adds up quickly.
We’re working on automating some/much of the processes and expect to be inviting people to join the new Queue soon. Part of that automation (we hope) will include dynamically updated data about revenue and costs in order to be transparent. In the meantime, that’s what it takes to send a Free* sticker to someone.
