Buying and

• One important consideration in pricing the merchandise is to obtain the
possible largest profit. This can be done through successful pricing of
merchandise for sale.
• When determining prices of merchandise, the business owners have to
consider several factors such as the target customers, competitors,
suppliers, store policies and the nature of quality of the merchandise.
• We shall refer to the selling price as the decided selling price since the
(+) or (–) final adjustment is a matter decided only by the retailer.
• In symbols,
• Selling Price = Cost + Mark up
• Where mark-up = operating expense + net profit ± final adjustment

Selling Price (SP) = Cost (C) + Mark up (MU)
Definition of terms
• The price that a company or store has to pay for the goods it
is going to sell
• The price that has to be spent to produce goods or services
before any profit is added
• This is usually computed on a per unit basis.

• the price (per unit) incurred relative to the production and sale of a
Definition of terms
• money earned after the cost price and the operating costs are accounted for
after the sale of a commodity
• the price at which the commodity is sold per unit
• To compute for the SELLING PRICE:
• S=C+E+P
• where S = Selling Price
• C = Cost Price
• E = Operating Expenses
• P = Profit
Mark UP

• the difference between the selling price

and the cost price sometimes referred
Mark-up based on COST
• When based on cost, the mark up is added to the cost of the item to
determine the selling price as follows
Selling Price (SP) = Cost (C) + Mark-Up (MU)
Mark-UP(Amount) = Cost (C) x MU Rate (MUR)
𝑀𝑎𝑟𝑘−𝑢𝑝 𝐴𝑚𝑜𝑢𝑛𝑡
Mark-UP Rate (MUR) = 𝑥 100%
𝑆𝑒𝑙𝑙𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑃𝑟𝑖𝑐𝑒 𝑆𝑃
Cost (C) = 1+𝑀𝑎𝑟𝑘−𝑢𝑝 𝑟𝑎𝑡𝑒 𝑀𝑈𝑅 𝑜𝑛 𝐶𝑜𝑠𝑡
1. If an item was purchased at P 700.00 and a mark-up rate of 40%
based on cost was added, find the amount of mark-up and the
selling price.
2. A retailer buys a dozen calculator at P 6000.00. if his mark-up
rate based on cost is 25%, how much is the selling price of each
3. Mr. Bean buys ball pens at P 750.00 per box of 50 pcs. The
suggested retail selling price for each ball pen is P 19.50. Find the
suggested mark-up rate based on cost for each ball pen.
4. A store sold a box of rubber band at P 48.60. if the store added a
mark-up rate of 35% based on cost, how much did it purchase
the box of rubber band?
Mark-up based on Selling Price
• When a retailer has to purchase to replenish a merchandise whose
selling price is already given, the problem is to determine the cost he
shall pay for the merchandise and still have the desired rate of gross
profit on the selling price.
Mark-up(MU) = SP x MUR (based on SP)
𝑀𝑎𝑟𝑘−𝑢𝑝 𝑀𝑈
MUR (based on SP) =
𝐶𝑜𝑠𝑡 𝑃𝑟𝑖𝑐𝑒 𝐶
Selling Price (SP) =
1−𝑀𝑈𝑅 (𝑏𝑎𝑠𝑒𝑑 𝑜𝑛 𝑠𝑒𝑙𝑙𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑝𝑟𝑖𝑐𝑒)
1. A businessman wishes to have a selling price of P 50.40 for a stapler
which he bought for P 37.80. find the a) mark-up and b) rate of mark-
up based on selling price.
2. A merchant bought a dozen of shirts for P 2100.00 and sold each shirt
for P250.00. based on the selling price, find the a) mark-up and b)
mark-up rate.
3. A dealer of appliances purchased 18 DVD players at P 3000.00 per
unit. If he sold each unit at 30% mark up based on selling price, how
much was the selling price per unit?
4. A grocery store plans to buy 12 dozens of canned goods at P 5,616.00
and get a 25% mark-up based on selling price. How much will be the
selling price per canned good?

cost incurred by the business owner, mark-up only
accounts for the cost of raw materials necessary to
produce the item being produced for sale.

• There are instance when a retailer buys quantities of
merchandise but was not able to sell them for various reasons.
Some of these reasons include overbuying, poor pricing and
outdated and worn-out appearance of merchandise or
possibly failure to forecast demand accurately. Thus, to attract
customers and to recover cost, the retailer has to reduce the
selling price of its merchandise during promotional sales e.g.,
clearance and mid-night sales.
Mark-down Amount (MD) = Old SP(OSP) – New SP (NSP)
or MD = OSP – NSP
𝑀𝑎𝑟𝑘−𝑑𝑜𝑤𝑛 𝐴𝑚𝑜𝑢𝑛𝑡
Mark-down Rate (MDR) = 𝑥 100%
𝑂𝑙𝑑 𝑆𝑒𝑙𝑙𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑃𝑟𝑖𝑐𝑒
or MDR = 𝑥 100%

New Selling Price = 𝑂𝑙𝑑 𝑆𝑒𝑙𝑙𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑃𝑟𝑖𝑐𝑒 𝑥 1 − 𝑀𝑎𝑟𝑘 − 𝑑𝑤𝑜𝑛 𝑅𝑎𝑡𝑒

or NSP = OSP (1-MDR)

• Mark-downs commonly happen when the mall decides to sell their items
at cut down prices to clear their warehouse collection.
• The other reasons why a mark-down is sometimes thought of as an
option for a business owner.
• the item is a perishable item and it is best to dispose of it sooner than simply throw
it away
• the item has become dirty or worn out, or possibly out of style
• competition forces the marking down of an item
• Remember that rates of mark-downs are always computed based on the
selling price.
• Note that it is possible that instead of making the business owner earn a
positive profit, selling an item on sale sometimes gives rise to a negative
profit. In this case, the profit is said to be a LOSS.
• When an item is given a selling price where the profit ends up being
zero, this is said to be the BREAK-EVEN PRICE. In this case, the selling
price is simply equal to the total of the cost price and the operating

Buying Merchandise
Trade Discounts

• Is usually a percentage reduction in price of a

merchandise granted by a manufacturer or a
wholesaler to the retailer.
• In most cases, manufacturers recommend to the
retailers the price that should be charged to the
customers. This recommended price by the
manufacturer is called List Price (LP) or Suggested
Retail Price (SRP).
• Reasons why Trade Discount if offered:
• To adjust List Price to prevailing market prices.
• To secure the trade of desirable customers.
• To attract retailers to buy in large quantities.
Trade discount amount = List price x Trade
discount rate
Net Price = List price - Trade discount amount
NP = LP – TD
Net Price = List price x (1- Trade Discount Rate)
NP = LP x (1 - TDR)

Complement - The difference between
Complement the single discount rate and 100%. The
complement is what percentage the
buyer will pay.


40% For example, if the trade discount is

40%, the complement is 60% (100%
-- 40%).

Successive Trade Discount
• On account of decline of market prices or to encourage further purchase
for more merchandise in large quantities or to receive frequent orders,
manufacturers and wholesalers offer successive trade discounts to
retailers. Giving successive trade discounts is a method of granting two
or more trade discounts to the retailers this method is also known as
• Chain discounts are trade discounts in a series of two or more
successive discounts.

• In successive trade discounts, the first discount is

based on the List Price; the second, on the remainder
after deducting the first discount; the third, on the
remainder after deducting the first two discounts; and
so on.
NP(for k successive discount rates) =
