[$115.68 + $30]/2
= $72.84

Pricing depends on YOU. $72 may be high in your area, but remember, if you are selling online you are not just limited to your physical area, you have the whole WORLD! Just make sure you are charging for your TIME and WORTH! I recommend staying consistent and stern though.

    I’d be interested in your reasoning for determining the total cost in the project. It seems to me as if you’ve marked the materials cost up 400%, only to reduce it to 200% once you divide by 2. Also, on the labor, aren’t you taking a total of $30 in labor and only including $15 of it in to total once you divide it by 2? I’m of the mind that just marking it up 200% and charging 100% for labor might be a better approach even though the total is higher. Once could then discount from there, say, 150% for material cost + $30 for labor. This calculation is very close to your total, yet, gives the owner a clearer idea of where costs are being made. Labor is usually out-of-pocket where the percent markup can fluctuate. The owner then knows where the discounts are being taken.

    Just some thoughts. I did purchase the Excel spreadsheet. Will I be able to change the formulas once I download it, or are they locked? If locked, I may ask you to unlock them for me. I’m on my iPad right now, not the pc and do not have Excel on the iPad making it difficult to check now.

    Thank you!
