It's done volume based because the cd's are not that expensive.  As an
example for me a dvd will cost $0.50 AUD shipping it will cost me $0.50
AUD locally anywhere in Australia.  The most expensive is the special
envelopes which are made for cd/dvd's which cost $1.00 each.

Karlie will be able to explain more about volume since she is involved
with the sponsored media aspect of freemedia.
