Pricing to Sell More Products in the World Marketplace

By November 23, 2012

Follow me on:

If you are not selling products sufficiently in the world marketplace, go back to the drawing board and reconfigure your pricing!

Typically, importers and exporters take a 10-15% markup over cost (called cost-plus pricing method), which is the price a manufacturer charges you when you buy product from them. In other words, if your supplier charges you $1.00 per unit for his product, you might mark it up to anywhere from $1.10 to $1.15 per unit, especially when you are moving millions of units. That markup becomes your profit or commission.

Just how high or low you can go with your markup is based on many different factors.  Take a look below.

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Appreciate it

Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to
start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m
looking for something unique. P.
S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
