Dropshipping pricing is a crucial step to ensure the success of your ecommerce business. In this blog post, we’ll dive deep into the world of pricing, using a frying pan that costs €21.90 to purchase as an example. We’ll go step-by-step to determine the optimal selling price, taking into account 20% profit, 1.5% transaction fees, 2% other costs (such as hosting and store maintenance), and shipping costs of 6.90 Euro.

The basics of price calculation in dropshipping using an example

To start with the price calculation in dropshipping, it is important to know the purchase price of your product. In this example, the purchase price of a frying pan is 21.90 Euros. Let’s sell the frying pan!

Step 1: Profit Margin
The profit margin is a crucial factor that affects the success of your business. You should calculate the profit margin meticulously to ensure that you are adequately rewarded for your efforts and risks. To calculate the sale price, we multiply the purchase price by 1.20 (100% + 20% profit).

21.90 Euro (purchase price) x 1.20 = 26.28 Euros

The selling price is therefore 26.28 Euros.

Step 2: Transaction Fees
In the world of e-commerce, transaction fees are charged, often by payment providers or platforms. These can be included directly in the sale price if possible.

Step 3: Other Costs
Ongoing costs such as hosting and shop maintenance should also be included in the price calculation. Calculate 2% of 26.28 Euros = 0.79 Euros.

Step 4: Shipping Costs
Shipping costs should not be overlooked and can also be included directly in the sale price. For inexpensive and small products, shipping costs should not be included to avoid increasing the price of the item. On the other hand, for expensive branded products, it can be practical to include shipping costs if it makes sense.

To determine the final sale price, we add up all of the costs:
Selling Price: 26.28 Euros
Other Costs: 0.79 Euros
Total Price: 27.07 Euros net

Import2Shop ist genau das was ich gesucht habe. In Zusammenarbeit mit meinen Lieferanten habe ich endlich ein Tool gefunden welches es mir erlaubt auch grosse Mengen an Produkten zu verarbeiten und zu pflegen. Der Support ist schnell und Kompetent und hilft auch bei Problemen die ausserhalb Ihres Zuständigkeit Bereichs liegen. Der Umzug dauert zwar jetzt ein paar Monate, aber am Schluss wurde alles erfüllt. Import2Shop kann ich nur empfehlen.

Ich habe mein Shopsystem umgestellt und bin auf Import2shop aufmerksam geworden. Wie immer mit einem neuen System sind bei der Einrichtung Probleme aufgetreten da für mich alles neu war. Der Support ist super, mir wurde gut und geduldig geholfen um das System zum laufen zu bekommen, dafür Daumen hoch.
