    The margin on a product is always calculated
    On the SALE PRICE.

    Say the sale price is $100.00
    If you need to make a $40.00 margin.
    This is 40%.

    Do not confuse margin with mark up.
    Mark up is always calculated on the COST PRICE.

    There is a definite mathematical relationship
    Between cost price and selling price .

    1) sale = 7.50
    2) cost = 6.46
    3) margin = 1.04
    4) margin % = (1.04)/(7.50) * 100 = 13.86%

    To calculate margin you have to use formula:

    cost/ 100 - (xx% of margin) x 100= price
    For example:

    Purchase price =100
    margin you want to add = 30%

    So 100 / 70 x 100 = 142.85

    142.83 is your final price

    then you will not get mixed up with giving a discount! Many people get that wrong!
    Try to just add 30% to 100 you will get 130 and then take away 30% from 130 hoe much will you get? 91!!
    try the same with 142.83 and you will get 99.981
    Easy !

    Whether this is a product or a service you must total all your costs. Subtract that from your selling price = margin (profit).
