markup pricing

Definition

The practice of increasing the price of an item by a standard percentage to calculate the sale price. Markup pricing enables vendors to easily calculate profits, since the net revenue from sales will be a function of the percentage by which the price has been marked up over the price paid for the item by the vendor.
