Pricing glass

Post by craigfda » Wed 30 Nov, 2016 3:35 pm

I'm sorry if this has been answered hundreds of times already:

I've been using Estlite for two years and have basically used the settings as they came, more or less. I'm now at thinking I need to refine the pricing a bit more but am not sure of the mathematics of it all.

Basically, I want to add UV92 glass as an option because it is obviously a lot more expensive than 2mm float but also a lot cheaper than Tru Vue's museum standard glass. I would previously just have selected "museum glass" settings but I'm not sure this is an accurate or fair price for the UV92. Basically, it's going to cost me £65 for a 122 x 91 sheet. How do I enter it into the table to reflect that cost?

Hope that makes some sense.

How much do you want to charge your customer for the UV92 glass where the frame size is 40 x 50 cms?

I suppose that's the problem, John. I don't know what a "fair" mark up for this particular glass is. When I compare what you have set as default for the "non-reflective" glass, it basically works out as x2 the cost of ordinary float glass and yet the cost price is about x4 the price. The UV92 is about x13 the cost of ordinary float from the supplier. This is maybe a question for other framers regarding pricing than a tech issue regarding your fantastic software. Should I post it elsewhere??

If it helps, I would have 24.00 and Min 4.00 on this glass.
