To write on the website of the service earnings of the company?

There is a service in which the main tool is the calculator that generates the product. This calculator shows the decoding cost of a product, for example:
— material 1: 1000.
— 2 material: 500r.
— 3 material: 1200r.

Should I write the real price of materials and add the item "We earned"? Like this:
— material 1: 800R.
— 2 material: 300r.
— 3 material: 1000R.
— for our work: 600R.

Or still spread earnings cost of materials?
I always thought that the option with smearing somehow creates a feeling of deception, as if everybody wants to hide how much they earn. Why not open it? In General, it is no secret there, especially because still a layman will not be aware of the sales. And he will see that you come to him honestly.

What do you say?

To answer this question is much easier knowing what You are doing and what Your goals are. In short:

— lie about the cost of the material is not clear. To lie is not worth, in the long run, a lie causes more problems than pay dividends

— to talk about "how much we make on your order" is not worth it. This figure in itself says nothing because it is normally laid down many costs and expenses (taxes, insurance, repayment of loans, wages, utilities, rent, website hosting, etc.). Remove all your books on the website, you probably won't, but then why to show people pointless for them numbers?
Yes, you are right. Their activity depends. Under a question I wrote a clarification.

As for the expanded incomes... Not sure. Yes, and in fact it does not interest anyone. The consumer is interested in. Interested in exactly how much I earned on the company, why should I polzovatsya its services. And how arrogant they are selling a unique product. - Harry_Olson commented on October 8th 19 at 04:05
The consumer is mainly interested in whether it is possible to obtain the same and of the same quality, but cheaper... and not how this company earns... IMHO - Myriam_Nicolas commented on October 8th 19 at 04:08

Don't know, of course, that you have a product, but those same Americans decided to write quite fully: the materials so much, work so much. Especially if the work is not just "stuck in a box and labeled it". And in the bill include a separate item.

In my opinion this is stupid if you sell for 1000, and buy it for 800, what hinders me to buy for 800? What your employees want is deep your problem, not your buyer. So definitely not.
Nothing prevents you to buy for 800. But we provide a practically unique service in its kind an individual product. You can buy for 800 more or less normal crap, and we have over 1000 cool thing. At the same time you still explain why our cool stuff worth 1000, not 800. Is it bad? - Harry_Olson commented on October 8th 19 at 04:09

No, not worth it.
The margin consists not only of work but also of storage costs, fluctuations in market prices, logistical issues, and other-other-other.
Example: in Thailand, the flood, plants for the production of hard disk drives rose. Prices on the railway soared. Even for those railroads, which were purchased before the flood, prices have risen — it was necessary. This increase cannot be attributed to "Our work".
And so on.

There is another category — directly work. I.e. "air conditioner Installation" is the work, it is paid. Only here in the price of firm is not the price paid to the workers themselves.

Well, the last. Keep it simple. This is your "work" reminds me of the fine print:
*for the maintenance of a credit account 2% tax and VAT, for our work 1000R
The fine print I was also furious, but only because he's small. And is usually lying in this case. And we will write neither fine nor coarse. On a level with everyone. Bad? - Harry_Olson commented on October 8th 19 at 04:11
I think it's bad.
And besides — you will be hard to explain to the accountants and corporate clients on a column of costs to carry out the "your work". - Myriam_Nicolas commented on October 8th 19 at 04:14
Of accountants corporate customers will be the final price in the invoice, that's all. But I understand Your point, thank you. =) - Harry_Olson commented on October 8th 19 at 04:17

Some Thrifty/greedy customers can start to beg You discounts.
We will have some discount system for regular customers, so in this plan everything is also transparent.
Yes, and it seems to me that these customers can directly answer that employees also want to eat. =) - Harry_Olson commented on October 8th 19 at 04:13
>Some Thrifty/greedy customers
95% do not? - Myriam_Nicolas commented on October 8th 19 at 04:16
I think You are too bad opinion about people. I could be wrong, but now the company has been corrected for the better. - Harry_Olson commented on October 8th 19 at 04:19

And for a car is the norm, and not only in America... Can still add a separate box for shipping.

In General, the legs grow out accounting — sale/purchase of products and services closed various documents and carried out on different

The competitor will tell you "we work with 10 rubles." (of course, the "smear" real earnings on the materials). But it will be more noticeable than higher prices for materials.
Can't. And even if they say it will still look like a hoax. - Harry_Olson commented on October 8th 19 at 04:17

If your service deals with reproductions of paintings, then all is simple.
A reproduction of this painting is the N rubles. And that's all.
I, as the buyer of the painting only interested in one thing — how much will it cost me for this picture.
Keep It Simply, SillY!
