How does a business pay for its costs?

A business can’t survive if it sells a product or service yet loses money during this process because it cannot pay for its costs.

How does a business pay for its costs?

A business pays for its costs by setting the right price to buy the product or service.

What is price?

Price is the amount of money a customer must pay for a product or service. Every business sets its own prices.

– The price for a sandwich is $5.00. 

– The price of a video game is $60.00. 

– The price for a car might be $27,000.00.

– The price for a house might be $1,000,000.

A business must make sure that the price is higher than the cost per product or service. Otherwise, the business will lose money and have to close down.

For example, if it costs you $5.00 to make 5 cups of lemonade at your lemonade stand, you want to make sure that the price of each cup is at least $1.00.

Pricing Strategies

There are many different pricing strategies that a business can use to encourage customers to buy its products or services.


  • Packages / Bundles
    – Sometimes when you purchase a video game console, there are a couple of video games included in the box.
  • Buy one, get one free (BOGO)
    – When you’re at a store, you might see a sign that says “Buy one, get one free” or “Buy one, get one 50% off”.
  • Prices ending with .99 cents
    – Products appear less expensive (e.g. $19.99).
  • Yearly Price ($10 a month)
    – Lead with the monthly price but require a customer to pay for a full year (e.g. $10 a month / $120 year).
