Is POD printing cost effective?

POD Printing is Expensive

When comparing types of printing and book printing services, POD publishing may seem very cost effective (since you only print a book when it is ordered). However, POD publishing is extremely expensive. A traditional softcover book might cost about $2 to print, but a similar POD book could cost between $5 and $15. Publishers would have to mark the book up quite a lot to make up for this cost of printing.
