CWL's original Pricing Model ?

Post by Laird »

Am I right in recalling that it was 'Cost plus 30%' ?

Appreciate responses and a discourse on todays scenario ....

No. Retail is three times cost.

Yes, that's how I remember it.

So 70% off is less than break-even?

Yep, strictly speaking. For example if cost were £300:

RSP is 300 x 3 = £900 (200% markup)
SP at 70% discount is 900 - 630 = £270.

However, I expect there is some wiggle room so they're shifting at cost approximately but "cost" could be just manufacturing cost or fully loaded with budgeted overheads allocated.

You also need to factor in the VAT

A retail SP includes VAT, at 1/6 of the sale value.(ie 20% on the cost)
So a £270 SP is actually £225 plus VAT.
