9.00 Explain pricing strategies for making effective pricing decisions.

9.03 Calculate the selling price of merchandise and services.

D. MARKETING A

SMALL BUSINESS

- Revenue remaining after the expenses of running the business have been deducted.
- Factors that affect profit:
- demand -- business expenses
- prices-- the economy
- chance

- Ways to increase profit
- increase worker efficiency-- increase sales
- reduce business expenses

The amount paid by a business for products purchased for resale or for use in the production of other goods.

The first expense that must be paid.

Is deducted directly from sales revenue to determine gross profit.

Formula (used on the income statement):

Sales Revenue

- Cost of merchandise sold

Gross profit

- Business Expenses

Net profit

Retail Price = Cost + Markup

RP = C + MU

13.50 = 10 + 3.50

An item costs the business $10 and has a markup of $3.50. What is the retail price?

Variations of the equation

C = RP – MU or MU = RP – C

The retail price of an item is $30.00 and the markup is $10.00. What is the cost of the item?

20 = 30 -10

- A common pricing method used by retailers.
- Retail price is calculated by doubling the cost of the merchandise.
- cost = $25.00
- KMU = $25.00
- retail price = $50.00

- The most common type of price change
- Used as a tool to stimulate sales, dispose of slow moving products, meet competitor’s prices, and/or increase customer traffic
- Markdowns are expressed as a % of net sales.
- MD% cannot be calculated until goods are sold because they are based on net sales.
- Original selling price X MD % = MD, OSP– MD = Final Selling price
- The original selling price of an item is $100.00 and the markdown is 30%. What is the markdown and final sales price of the item?
- 100 x .3 = $30 (MD)
- 100 – 30 = $70 (FSP)

- Buying errors
- Pricing errors
- Special sales
- Broken assortments

- Reductions in price given by manufacturers/wholesalers when a large or specified quantity is purchased.
- Cumulative quantity discounts: Based on total purchases over a specified period of time (whole purchase).
- Non-cumulative quantity discounts: Given for a one-time purchase or shipment (on specific product like envelopes).

- Also called functional discounts
- Offered to channel members for performing certain functions like storing or record keeping
- Can be stated as a percentage off the list price or as a series of percentages off the list price. Example: “List price less 45%” or “List price less 30%, less 15%, less 5% ($2000 less 30/12/5)”
- 2000 x .3 = 600 x .12 = 72 x .05 = 3.60
