Enter the distributor revenue ($) and the distributor cost ($) into the Distributor Margin Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Distributor Margin. 

Distributor Margin Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Distributor Margin. 

DIM = (DR-DC) / DR * 100

  • Where DIM is the Distributor Margin (%)
  • DR is the distributor revenue ($) 
  • DC is the distributor cost ($) 

How to Calculate Distributor Margin?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Distributor Margin.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the distributor revenue ($). 
    • The distributor revenue ($) is given as: 560.
  2. Next, determine the distributor cost ($). 
    • The distributor cost ($) is provided as: 300.
  3. Finally, calculate the Distributor Margin using the equation above: 

DIM = (DR-DC) / DR * 100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

DIM = (560-300) / 560 * 100 = 46.42 (%)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

distributor revenue ($) = 780

distributor cost ($) = 90

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator above.

DIM = (DR-DC) / DR * 100 = ?
