Is a $5 profit per unit worth pursuing?

He’s found one that meets all of the criteria that Scott typically recommends but isn’t sure if the pricing is viable.

You might be surprised by Scott’s response on this one, so be sure you listen to get the insights he shares.
Which is more important - seller feedback or product feedback?
