Calculation-- Use the pop-up menu to select a calculation choice.
Rounding-- Choose the Rounding Method to use for this price. You can round numbers to an even quantity, or trim them
to "retail" pricing such as $9.95.
Enter one of the following choices in the Calculation field for each markup
Retail markup-- based on a percentage of the final sale price (sometimes called Margin). It is calculated by
the following formula: Sale Price = Purchase Price * (1/(1- Markup Percentage)). If you purchase an item
for $10.00 and use a 40% retail markup, the sale price will be 1 * (1/(1-.4)), or $16.67.
HINT-- The $6.67 markup amount is 40% of the $16.67 selling price.
Simple markup-- based on a percentage of the purchase price. It is calculated by the following formula: Sale Price = Purchase Price * (1+ Markup
Percentage). If you purchase an item for $10.00 and use a 40% simple markup, the sale price will be 1 * (1+.4), or $14.00.
HINT-- The $4.00 markup amount is 40% of the $10.00 purchase price.
Fixed addition-- Goldenseal will add the entered dollar amount to the purchase price.
Manual Pricing-- Goldenseal will not calculate a price. Instead the price field will be editable, and you can type in any price.
No Markup-- Goldenseal will not add any markup. The sale price will be the same as the purchase price.
Not Available-- The markup method will not apply at all to that type of markup price.
