I sell regular cupcakes ("simple cc with a swirl and that's it" is how I describe them) for $1.00. Originally my bulk pricing was 6/$5, 12/$8, 24/$15. I thought fine, since the cost of each CC is about $0.30 cents or so. Anyways, the other day I was adding more buttons to our register system and I realized:
buy 6 save $1, buy 12 save $$4, buy 24 save $9
I guess I hand't, well WE hadn't really thought it thru at 1st, but when I was creating the buttons it hit me that it was too low on bluk pricing. I mean, I want people to save and what not, but not only are the costs involved but so is labor, even if it IS a "swirl and that's it".
I brought it up to the BF and HE says he always KNEW it was too low...right, I'm sure. Anyways, then he came up with 6/$5, 12/$10, 24/$20. The problem I see with that is that the customers aren't really saving as they buy more. Buy 2 "pkgs" of 6 for $10, buy a "pkg" of 12 for $10...see what I mean?
THEN, I thought maybe 6/$5, 12/$9, 24/$17. But honestly, I still don't know. We run our own business so we really gotta figure this out. To make matters worse, we had a client come in the other day and ask for pricing and we gave her the original pricing. Which since I wrote it down on our flyer, if she comes in we'll honor those prices, but I'm afraid someone else will come in (we're new) and I still won't have this figured out. so ssssstrrrreeesssiiing...
