We don't suggest that you sell anything under $200 - $300 per item because it's hard to sell the number of items needed to meet your monthly goal. That being said, it's not impossible to be successful in the long run with lower priced items, it'll just be harder, you'll have to deal with more returns/ customer service and it'll take longer.
1) Anything below $200 attracts people looking for a deal and they end up having a lot of questions and sending back items which means that you have to spend more time dealing with customer service and returns.
2) Anything under $200 means that you have to sell a large number of those items to meet your monthly goal. If you sell items $200 or more you only have to sell a small amount to meet your goal. Also, you don’t want to sell anything over about $1000 because then you attract pretty wealthy people and they tend to ask a lot of questions and send items back a lot.
