But, it seems too basic of a question. Are you trying to understand how to calculate your COGS? Adding in time value of money, inventory carrying, fixed costs such as warehousing, etc?
(a) the shipping cost you paid to acquire the product,
(b) the packaging and void-fill costs you paid to ship the product,
(c) the product life-cycle costs, including losses, damage, and non-resellable returns.
A (simplifed) formula that I've used is:
Markup = 2.475 * Cost ^ -0.16
if Markup < 1.2 then Markup = 1.2
Price = (Cost * Markup) + (0.25 * Weight)
Round to higher nickel if < 10.00, or
round to higher 95-cents if > 10.00.
