Price rounding calculator

This calculator is created to assist you in maximizing your margins. The first step of this calculator is to simply calculate the gross margin of an item. The second step is where you learn how to add gross margin by moving away from absolute margins. As an example, a buyer may calculate a 40% margin with the resulting answer being $13.29. However, research shows that a customer is just as likely to purchase the item if the price is $13.99 as compared to $13.29. The additional 70 cents adds several gross margin points to the price.

Any additional margin you add at this point, falls straight to the bottom line. When you realize that the average business has a single digit net profit, in many cases this exercise can greatly increase the net profit of a business.

Step One: Enter the cost and desired selling price to determine the margin, or enter the cost and desired margin to determine the selling price.
