Grandma want to thank-you for staying with her through the problems. Grandma has had to come to stay with Great Grandma to help her which meant a move for the animals. Fortunately, they have been doing quite well at Great Grandma's; however, Grandma's car did not hold out quite as well, it has been quite sick and now Grandpa is sick from trying to get it fixed and the grandson's have took over that work to get the car well. Grandma has been trying to get the dropshipping; however, the companies want to charge. Therefore, Grandma must try as hard as I can. However, if I accept a $2 charge on each sale then a $20 commission would only come done to $18. Where they handle the shipment cost it helps.
