Re: Margin Percentage on Quotation

In the example given the terminology should be
"markup"  rather than "margin."

$100 cost to $200 sale is "$100% markup" and "50% margin"
(which is generically called a "keystone")

so in your example  

Cost: 10.00

Unit Price: 18.00

Margin: 8

Markup Percentage = 80%

Margin % is 8/18=   44.44%

The proposed system to add a "driver" for markup (or margin) is a good one, in quotations. 

See if any of these modules might work for you.  Camp to Camp does excellent work but all worth the try.

(more listed for margin than markup, interesting)

Best of luck with the project.

The customer wants to do it on the fly I suppose and not with the pricelists ?

Hello All,


For your assistance please. We would like to confirm how or is it possible to add a column on the quotation for Margin Percentage? For example:


Cost: 10.00

Unit Price: 18.00


Margin: 8

Margin Percentage: 80%


So when we change the percentage to 50% the Unit price will change to 15.00.


Has anyone implemented anything similar to this.


Thank you so much


Best Regards,
