Finalizing MRP of the book
How you can finalize the MRP
If you have the plan to put your book in any physical/actual store, please keep in mind, most of them generally ask for at least 50% discounts on top of MRP. To run the show, they sometimes need to offer a huge discount to the customers.
In the case of selling through online giants like Amazon.in & others, you have to think about handling charges, inventory charges, their commission and in some cases, you need to strategise of giving free shipping too.
Having a 50% - 70% extra within the MRP helps you to start with 15% - 20% discounts or even the book can be advertised with free shipping if budget permits.
After getting the manuscript and payment, we generally discuss in details regarding the MRP to match the author's expectation.
