To calculate Your Pricing use this Formula or similar:
This formula is based on selling 24 x 12 pack cases per Month, the more you sell the less you pay. If your Distribution Service fee is $350 per Month, and you sell 24 cases that have 12 bottles in each case, then your per bottle would be $1.22. So you would add this to your per bottle cost.
Cost Per Bottle (12 x $7.50) $90.00 + Profit (12 x $6.00) $72.00 + State Sales Tax (12 x $1.30) $15.60 + Case Check-in $1.00 + Checkout $0.50 + Delivery $6.00 + Case Picking Fee $2.00 + Distribution Service Fee $1.22 = $188.32 / 12 = $15.69 per Bottle is your retail price.
Every Brand has different profit margins and marketing techniques. Some are higher and some are lower, if your planning on selling your Product as an Ultra Premium Spirit, than you want to up the Profit Per Bottle to achieve a higher retail price. And if you wanted to sell it cheaper, lower the profit margin. Another way to lower your Monthly Fee per Bottle is to sell more products. The $350 per month works out to be $1.22 per bottle if you sell 288 bottles / 24 cases. If you were to sell around 864 bottles / 72 cases, then your price per bottle would be $0.40, and puts your bottle around $14.87. So you see that our Distribution Model is performance based, the better you do the more you’ll make per Brand.
