How do you calculate what you charge for a bar of soap? My bars weigh 6.5 ounces and I only charge $4 a bar. Does anyone charge a dollar and ounce, maybe?
That's a massive issue with people who are only selling to cover their costs rather than make a business of it - they often end up undercutting the market and can make properly priced soap seem expensive
My bars are 100 grams and I charge $7.00 per bar or 3 for $20
Double the amount of St. Joseph's oil … double the price … just my 4 cents.$10 a bar! Must be a lot better soap than what I make! Someday...
Guess I won't quit my day job!Again, as to pricing - let's say that you made 1/4 of that 380, based on 2 x costs = wholesale, 2 x wholesale = retail = 95. Take from that the 60 paid to the three people, leaves you with 35 as pay for the day
I mean, he could have also not made so much soap and not spent the money on ingredients and the stand at the fair and saved the 380 to start with! But then I am one of those who think that if you're making too much soap to be able to use or reasonably give away, you can just make less soap instead of selling off soaps that you didn't make to sellThat’s great John! It’s $380 that you wouldn’t have had, and it is so much fun to see people be happy with your soap. You may decide to up your prices, but I appreciate your excitement! You must have terrific soap. Those customers will all be back.
