Use the Discount Calculator to calculate your profits.

Enter the item’s cost and markup, then try out different discount percentages to see how they affect your sale price, profit, and gross margin!

Terms are defined as follows:

Cost of Item: The cost of manufacturing the product.

Markup: The amount of overhead and profit added to the production cost is referred to as the markup.

Holiday Discount: How much will you be discounting the goods during the holiday season? (as a percentage).

Sale Price: the amount paid by the customer.

Profit: the difference between your income and the cost of the item.

Gross Margin: The bigger the percentage, the more profitable your company will be.

Aside from these computations, keep the following tips in mind:

  • If you can’t afford to discount your products, consider offering free shipping, extra loyalty points, or little freebies with every order.
  • Avoid significant discounts on popular items if you want to ensure you have enough inventory to last the full Christmas season.
  • Keep your discounting technique as straightforward as possible Because no one loves having to mentally compute pricing!
