What products are not achieving markup set up in your system? 

  One of the most exciting and nerve-wracking aspects of retail is determining what price to sell your products at. Pricing is both an art and a science that requires an experimental attitude      coupled with an intuitive feel. 


 What is Markup?  - Markup is the difference between the cost of a good or service and its selling price. 


 How to calculate Markup? 


 Markup % = ((Sell Price – Std Cost)/ Std Cost)*100 

 NB: This formula excludes GST. 

 NB: Std Cost maybe referred to in other industries as list cost / list price. 


 Here we will identify products which are not achieving a markup figure set up in your system.
