Hi! There is an easy way to work this out.

100% of 14.99 is 14.99 (14.99 / 14.99 = 1)

So therefore 10% is a tenth of 1, which is 0.1

If you multiply 14.99 x 0.1 you get 1.499 (let's say 1.50)

Therefore you get 1.50 off the price. So with your 10% discount the item is now 13.49. If it helps knock off the odd penny and work to the nearest pound. 10% of 15 quid is 1.50 so the new price is 13.50. Easier to work out in your head when talking to the salesman...

### How to work out percentage of items

The concept of "percentage difference" depends upon what you use as your comparator, or the "base" amount.

Suppose the 8.50 value is entered in cell B3 and 4.80 is entered in cell C3.

To compute what percentage you'd save (off the higher price) if you buy from the cheaper supplier, you could enter into cell D3 a formula like: =(B3-C3)/B3
This would result in a numeric value of 0.435294, meaning you'd save about 43.53% off the higher price. In this case, your "base" amount is \$8.50.

Alternatively, if you used the lower price as the "base", then you could use a formula like: =B3/C3
This would result in a numeric value of 1.770833, meaning the higher price is 177.08% of the lower price, so it costs about 77% more.

HTH!

### What make the gross profit percentage increase

Gross profit =total revenue -cost of doing business
Gross profit percentage = Gross profit/(Total revenue.)*100%
To increase the gross profit percentage, you decrease the cost of doing business.
Costs= all you have to spend to be able to do business (merchandises, employees' pay, rent of facilities, electric bills, etc.)

### Hi i just sold an item and the money from the item was posted into my account however the money from the shipping and handling was not?

Hi there!
Once your item is sold, the system will generate a fee for that which is called the final value fee. It is a percentage eBay took for successful completed listings but it will be taken away in your bank or credit card at the end or mid of the month depending on your billing cycle. (please check your invoice in the Account tab, right side invoices)
But if the shipping cost is not included in the invoice sent to the buyer, check your listing and make sure that you didn't choose free shipping. If your shipping calculator is set but the buyer paid no shipping cost, you can then ask the buyer to pay for it. You can send the buyer a manual paypal invoice.
Here's how you can create a manual invoice using your PayPal account:

2. Click Request Money.
3. Click Create a Money Request or Create an Invoice.
4. Enter the required information.
5. Click Continue.
6. Review the information and click Request Money to send a money request or Send Invoice to send an invoice.

You can also ask several people at the same time. Just enter their email addresses, separated by commas.

I hope this helps. Have a great day!

### 1) A trader bought 45 dozen items for 2700 naira. If 15% of the items got destroyed, what should be the cost per item to make a profit of 265? 2) A woman bought 200 mangoes for 800 naira she discovered...

45 dozen: 12 x 45 = 540

Destroyed: 15% of 540 = 540 x (15/100) = 81

Remaining: 540 - 81 = 459

A profit of 265 means that 459 items must sell at 2700+265=2965 naira or 2965/459=6.46 naira approximately.

Cost per item = 6.46 or 6.5 naira approximately

Cost = 800 naira

8 spoilt. Remaining = 200 - 8 = 192 OR 16 dozen (12x16=192)

Selling price: 60 naira per dozen = 60 x 16 = 960 naira

Profit made (selling price - cost price) = 960 - 800 = 160 naira. Percent profit = Profit/cost x 100 = 160/800 x 100 = 20%

Percentage profit = 20%

### Calculating Percent savings

Since I don't use the percent sign. Here is instead a MUCH easier way. Divide the price you bought it for (289) by the original price (648). This gives you the percentage that 289 is with respect to 648 if you just read off the first two decimal places. When you divide one number by another it will tell you how many times they 'fit' for the purpose of explaining it. That is also essentially what a percentage is out of 100 parts. so when you divide one number by another, you will get a decimal answer, just multiply it by 100 (or just take the first two decimals) and that is percent saved (percent different). Note that if the first value is LARGER than the second, you will have a percentage of over 100%.
