Well, you learned a lesson.

You drill for oil before you build an oil well.

You should have calculated all this stuff, cost of goods, overheard, cost of customer acquisition THEN you make an app and a website.

Before you spend money, DRILL!

Example: Costs $X to drill for oil. Costs 10000X to build oil well.

So we DRILL THEN WE BUILD

Nobody cares. Post the idea here so we can analyze it. You clearly don't have the stuff to market it.

Use OpenCart. It's opensource and has no payment margins.

Thank you, dumb-frog-poster.
I will NOT make your mistake.

What kind of subscription? I immediately think magazines, which would go via USPS media mail for much less than $5.

But if even fairly-priced CC processing like Square kills your margin, you really need to rethink part of your plan.
