How does Margin work
Active formula for NEW Prices is the next:
“New Price” = (“Wholesale Price” * (1 + Margin %) ) + (Margin DELTA)

“Source category” column (A) – do not change it!
“Destination category” column (B) – allows you to change original category path.
“Margin % percent” column (C) – allows you to set your margin for exported products
“Margin DELTA” column (D) – allows you to add specific number to price after margin % action

Sample 1: calculate manually
Wholesales price is 100$
Margin Percent is 10%
Lets get results:

100$ * (1 + 10%/100) = 110$
or 100$*1,1=110$
where 1,1 is effective multiplier

Sample 2: what “Margin percent” should I set if I want just multiply “Wholesales price” at 1800
effective multiplier is 1800
Lets get results:

1 + %/100 = 1800
1800-1 = 1799
%/100 = 1799
% = 179900

So, “Margin percent” has to be 179900
