I sale pet products in my store and I have issues setting up prices and still be profitable and fair. I am using Tiered % Markup on wholesale cost. Still I feel that is not the right mapping and it seems that some products either are too expensive or too close to break even.  I use inventory source for inventory management. 

Price      Tier Markup Amount           Fixed Dollar Addition

0>10  ----- 50%------------------------------------$2

10>30  -----50%-----------------------------------$2

30>80   ---- 40%-----------------------------------$2

80>150------35%---------------------------------2$

150>250-----35%---------------------------------2$

my Suppliers use fed ex but shopify at least for me offers me only UPS and USPS and sometimes the rates are different and sometimes I lose money on shipping. So in order to brak even with shipping I have to charge 40% on handling. 

 

advise will be greatly taken.

 

Thanks
