    I came across this information a while ago. Thought I would post it here for the benefit of all.

    Have a great day.

    What is the difference?
    Markup is a percentage of the cost.
    Margin is the same dollar amount expressed as a percentage of the selling price.

    Item costs $1.00 Items sells for $1.50.
    Markup is .50 or 50 percent of the cost.
    Margin is .50 or 33 a percent of the selling price.
