I'm not sure I understand your point... All I know is that when you are producing a product (if you're selling it it's a product) your goal is normally to create the greatest difference between the price you sell it for and what it cost to produce it as well as maintain it until it is sold. That is true whether you're ambition is to make millions or to break even.
The way you maximize the difference between costs and the money you get back is to sell out quickly in order to eliminate the cost of sitting on your stock. This may mean that your initial asking price is lower than most other vendors but if you have the most competitive prices you will likely sell out first and by eliminating the cost of maitaining the stock you may end up netting the most money in the end.
I feel a little light headed... maybe you should drive...
