- | A markup calculation is a calculation that does its math from "the bottom up". This means that it refers to the dollar value increase as a percentage of cost. The 2 codes that use the markup calculation style are W and L. The cost used is different for each one. W uses base cost, and L uses actual costs otherwize known as the landed cost. | + | A markup calculation is a calculation that does its math from "the bottom up".

The 100% markup scenario is a great example because most retailers know that a 100% markup is double the price. You can think of the calculation of markup as a way to compare the cost to the increase in terms of a percentage. | The 100% markup scenario is a great example because most retailers know that a 100% markup is double the price.

- | A common mistake in the calculation can happen if you are used to thinking about things in terms of percentage of cost. if I have a cost of $100 and a price of $300 it is intuative to say that the price is cost x 300%. The problem with that is that the markup is only 200%. Test it using the formula above. Please look at our price code X for this type of calculation. | + | A common mistake in the calculation can happen if you are used to thinking about things in terms of percentage of cost. if I have a cost of $100 and a price of $300 it is intuitive to say that the price is cost x 300%.
