Craft Price Calculator

This calculator is designed to give you a rough idea of how much you "should" charge for an item you have made. It takes into account how much your materials cost, how long it took you to make, and how much you want to earn per hour or your percentage markup.

It also tries to calculate how much you lose to things such as eBay fees, papyal fees and such.

Please note : We have not included any currency symbols to avoid confusion.

Your Costs
The cost of your raw materials.
The time it took you to make this, in hours.
How much you want to make per hour. (defaults to adult minimum wage)
%Percentage Profit

This calculator works out a practical price. It DOES NOT give you a market price, you may find the market cannot bear the price you "should" sell your item at, or you may find that your item is worth more on an artistic level than the practical cost calculated. It may help you decide if you can make a viable business from your craft.

Notes :

  • Material costs is marked up by 50% of your input to take account of wastage and associated costs of sourcing and buying your materials, equipment costs etc.
  • Percentage Markup is added to the whole price once your time and materials and calculated.
  • Estimated Costs are based on current published figures as of October 2014. These have not been calculated into your suggested selling price.
  • No estimated costs include any attempt to include your postage and packing costs.
  • This is intended to be a guide ONLY and Beading Lovely will not be held liable for any errors or losses caused by using this pricing guide.
