Cigarette Wholesaler Alternate Price Calculator HelpClose

Cigarette wholesalers are invited to use this automatic price calculator to calculate their wholesaler to retailer selling price when they choose to use a markup greater than the minimum markup.

In the first box at the top, enter the manufacturer to wholesaler invoice price per 1000 cigarettes before any discounts are applied.

In the second box at the top, enter any standard anticipatory trade discount that you received (e.g. 2% or 3.25%). If you did not receive a standard anticipatory trade discount, leave this box blank.

In the third box at the top, enter any other permitted discount for paying electronically or within a certain number of days. If you did not receive any additional discount, leave this box blank.

In the fourth box at the top, enter the percent of markup that you intend to apply to this wholesaler to retailer sale. Any percentage equal to or higher than the current minimum markup will be accepted by the calculator. When you click on the "Calculate" button, the percentage that you enter in the fourth box will automatically be filled in on Line 2 of the Wholesaler to Retailer Price per Carton of 200 Cigarettes and Line 2 of the Wholesaler to Retailer Price per Carton of 250 Cigarettes.

After filling in the boxes at the top, click on the "Calculate" button. The wholesaler to retailer prices at the bottom will appear. If you decide to change the cost of doing business markup, or any other of the four boxes at the top, you must click on the "Calculate" button again to get the new result.

The "Reset" button will clear the numbers in the calculator to begin a new calculation.

The "Print Page" button at the bottom of the screen will print a copy of your calculation for your records. If the "Print Page" button at the bottom of the screen does not function, use your browser's print function.

It is highly recommended that wholesalers using this calculator print out a copy of their completed calculation. It could later be used as evidence to prove that your wholesaler to retailer price is consistent with the Cigarette Sales Below Cost Act statute and regulation.

As variables change, remember to recalculate your wholesaler to retailer price and print a copy for your records.
