How do you price items for resale?

Example: I purchase many handmade doll clothes on Ebay for resale, but they are all purchased at a different price due to bidding. How do I price them? The store they are placed in takes 10% off the price I place on each item. How do I price them so I can make a profit....also should I just average the cost of multiple purchases?

There are a number of factors that you consider when pricing items for resale, some of these factors include; product costs, overhead, competition, the distribution method, wages and what you expect in return. The best method to come up with a resale price is generally a cost-plus approach, where you multiply your product cost by a markup aspect such as 100 percent. In the case of small buy and sell operators, the best approach is to conduct a market research to know what similar products are selling for.

Cost to make item x 2 1/2 minus 10 percent for the reseller is a fair price and they will sell. X 3 and they could sit for awhile.
