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.
