Know your actual Gross Margins now!


Find your gross margins

Ever feel like your profit margins are a bit of a mystery? You know the numbers your suppliers give you, but those rarely show what is happening in your shop. That's where actual gross margin comes in – a true reflection of your operating efficiency.

For example, here at POS Solutions, we realize that running a successful store in the brick-and-mortar world requires knowledge. Therefore, our point-of-sale software makes monitoring your gross margins incredibly easy, giving you valuable insights to make informed decisions that can boost your bottom line.

Why Actual Gross Margins Matter More

While suppliers often provide "quoted" gross margins, these figures might not tell the whole story. Here's why:

  • Markup vs. Margin Confusion: Suppliers might quote a markup percentage (e.g., a 42% figure), which sounds more impressive than a gross margin of 30%. Plus, getting an actual feel of your business profitability will be tough if some items you have are markup and some are gross margin.
  • Selective Sharing: Sometimes, suppliers provide margins only for most products and then claim the rest they ignore. Yet even the rest of the items can impact your overall profitability.
  • Discounts and Deals: Let's face it, discounts and promotions are a part of retail life. But these can significantly impact your actual gross margin compared to the quoted figure.
