I am constantly buying products and reselling them. Usually I have a "what the market will bear" retail price in mind, but I have to quickly calculate how profitable it will be. This calculator takes the following inputs:
- Units (how many)
- Unit Cost
- Setup or Shipping (for any charges that are for the whole order rather than per unit)
- Sale Price (what the customer will pay per unit)
- Unit Profit
- Total Profit
- Margin (%)
- Markup (%)
- Total Sale Price
Now I can adjust the price and quickly see if the transaction is profitable enough to deal with. My invoicing system only uses a "markup" approach to calcuating retail price (lame, I know), so I can use the "Markup" result and the pricing matches my target.
Is it wrong to love writing calculations so much?
