I struggle to see how you'd make anything at all selling it at 99c. I mean,
if I send CDs to people I would usually put them in a Jiffy bag or something
like that. Once you figure your costs for the CD itself (say 20p), the cost
of the packaging (those Jiffy bags aren't cheap), and the paypal fees you'd
inevitably have to pay, I struggle to see how you'd make any money at all.
And that's making no allowance for ebay fees, or your time actually burning
the thing.

Even assuming the CD went standard mail with no padded envelope at all, I
still struggle to see how you'd make more than a few pence once all the
costs had been met.
