Calculate the total mark up on an item, or the desired markup of an item. Enter the cost, revenue, and profit to calculate markup.

## Markup Formula

The markup on an item can be calculated with the following formula.

Markup = 100 * p/c

- Where p is profit ($)
- c is cost ($)

Multiplying the profit divided by the cost represents the markup as a percentage, however, it can be displayed as a decimal as well.

Markup is not the same as margin. Margin is a representation of the revenue to cost, so it will be slightly different than markup.

## How to calculate Markup

The first step in calculating the markup on an item is determining the cost of goods sold, or more simply just the costs. As an example lets assume our product has a cost of $200.00.

Next, we need to calculate the profit on that item. This can be done through subtracting the cost from the revenue. Lets say the revenue was $500.00. That gives us a profit of $300.00.

Finally, we need to plug both the profit and cost into either the calculator above, or the formula. This gives us a markup of 150%.

You may have noticed from the equation, that their are only two ways one can increase their markup. Either reduce cost, or increase revenue. The different ways you can do that are infinite. An example of a good way to reduce cost is to review your sources of raw material and get competitive bids from competing companies. Then you can go back to your currently supplier and try to have them bring the cost down. The best case scenario is these two companies get into a bidding war.
