**Service Fees**

In addition to the subscription fee, there is a service fee charged when selling products through your site.

When selling Partner Vendor Fulfilled products, the service fee is calculated based on the total amount that the client pays for all of the vendor fulfilled products in the order.

For Digital Download products and Self Fulfilled products, the service fee is based on the total amount paid by the client minus the sales tax. For Self Fulfilled products, the shipping fee is included in the service fee calculation.

For fee information, please see the Selling Guide.

**Setting Prices**

Using a **formula **you can quickly price all products offered for sale using a combination of a fixed and percentage markups. Or you can set the prices **manually**. This can be done when you are editing the price list for **Products, Prices, and Currencies**.

Zenfolio offers a built-in formula function to markup items by a percentage plus the base price. The selling price can combine a fixed mark-up and a percentage over the base price. The formula is used to quickly set the selling price for all items in your price list. You can also specify an option to round the prices to make them look more appealing. You can choose to round up to the nearest $1.00, $0.99, $0.95 or not to round up at all.

The base price is the cost of a product charged by fulfillment partner and cannot be changed. Specifying the fixed markup and/or the percentage markup sets the final selling price.

*Selling Price = Base Price Fixed Markup % Over Base*

The **examples** below illustrate how the pricing with formula works.

**Example 1:**

If the formula is set to have Fixed Markup of $4 and 100% added to the base lab cost of the product (rounded up to the nearest $1), it would look like this in the formula:

When applied to an example product with a $.19 base lab cost, it would set the Selling Price of the product to $5. Minus the $.35 service fee, the profit that the photographer would make from the product would be $4.46.

Here is what that would look like in the price list.

**Example 2:**

If the formula is set to have Fixed Markup of $10 and 400% added to the base lab cost of the product (rounded up to the nearest $1), it would look like this in the formula:

When applied to an example product with a $1.99 base lab cost, it would set the Selling Price of the product to $20. Minus the $1.40 service fee, the profit that the photographer would make from the product would be $16.61.

Here is what that would look like in the price list.
