Pricing Policy

The Philosophy I’m Following:

I provide physical and digital goods (via this website) and services (vs my therapy business). The goals of providing these goods and services include:

  1. Improving the individual mental health and experience of human rights of people I interact with.
  2. Improving overall mental health and human rights in the world.
  3. And making a living that will allow me to retire at some point.

I have no desire to be wealthy, nor do I wish to live in poverty (again) in my life. I simply want to provide goods and services people want and need at prices that value the work I do and make customers happy.

Talking strictly about the goods in my Goodies and Gear shop here, the pricing policy I follow is:

  1. I add the wholesale cost of the item and shipping cost together (averaged if it varies by location)
  2. I multiply by 30% and round up to 99 cents on the dollar for the retail amount.
  3. I do NOT charge extra for larger sizes of clothes, and for most of the world, I don’t charge additional shipping (this only changes where the shipping costs mean that I lose money to sell it). If an item has limitations on where I will ship it, it will be noted in the description.
  4. I hold regular 10% off sales to allow folks to capture bargains.
  5. Because shipping is significantly cheaper when shipping multiples of the same item, I will be adding coupons for bulk sales that will be included on this page as I create them. These coupons will allow me to pass on my savings to you.
