    Hi, Bonnie! Check your email. Good luck.

Parag Chokhawala April 12, 2020 10:05:33

What is the target audiance for under 5$ store?.

    Timur Y. April 13, 2020 2:34:44

    It depends on the niche rather than on the price. A bra and a super glue both cost less than $5, but I reall doubt they can be targeted at the same audience.
