PRICING DECISIONS &
FACTORS INFLUENCING
PRICING DECISIONS
MARKETING MANAGEMENT
INTRODUCTION
• Pricing is simply the “money charged for a product or service”.
• It is everything that a “ customer has to give up” in order to
acquire a product or service.
• The “price is not the same thing as cost”.
• Pricing is “one of the most important business decisions”
management take.
• Unlike other elements of marketing mix, “pricing decisions directly
affect revenues rather than costs”.
• It contributes to the “perception” of a product or service by
customers.
• There are so many factors to consider, and much uncertainty about
whether a price change will have the desired effect.
PRICE
• Price is the value that is put to a product or service and is the
result of a complex set of calculations, research and
understanding and risk taking ability.
• Philip Kotler define“ Price is the amount of money charged
for a product or service.”
• Stanton define “ Price is the amount of money or goods
needed to acquire some combination of another goods and
its companying services.”
PRICING DECISIONS
• Pricing is the process whereby a business sets the price at
which it will sell its products and services, and may be part of
the business's marketing plan. In setting prices, the business
will take into account the price at which it could acquire the
goods, the manufacturing cost, the market place, competition,
market condition, brand, and quality of product.
FACTORS INFLUENCING PRICING DECISIONS
INTERNAL FACTORS
1. Cost
2. Company Objectives
3. Organisational Factors
4. Marketing Mix
5. Product Differentiation
EXTERNAL FACTORS
1. Competition
2. Demand
3. Suppliers
4. Economic conditions
5. Consumers
6. Government
INTERNAL FACTORS
• The internal factors are factors that can be control, determine
and process by the organisation.
• This factors are mostly in relation with the organisation business
level strategy and greatly influenced by the nature of business.
1. Cost
• Major factor that determine price.
• This is the cost (TC= FC+VC) incurred by the organisation in
the production of goods or service.
• The cost of production is largely influence by the supplier cost,
macroeconomic trends and the nature of business.
• In an economy with high inflation rate, the cost of production will
rise except where the organisation has monopoly of its supply.
2. Company Objective
• Some organisation set a cost plus pricing. In such case, a
percentage is added to the cost of production in order to arrive
at the price.
• The argue here is that, the company’s objective is profit
maximization and therefore a pricing decision must be that will
consider that profit maximization objective.
• When pricing decisions are made, they must be in line with the
overall company objectives, as this is what will inform what the
pricing objective really is, so that the pricing decisions made will
not be against the company objective.
3. Organisational Factors
• Pricing decisions occur on two levels in the organisation. Over-
all price strategy is dealt with by top executives. They determine
the basic ranges that the product falls into in terms of market
segments.
• The actual mechanics of pricing are dealt with at lower levels in
the firm and focus on individual product strategies. Usually,
some combination of production and marketing specialists are
involved in choosing the price.
4. Marketing Mix
• Price is the important element in marketing mix.
• A shift in any one of the elements has an immediate effect on
the other three - Production, Promotion and Distribution.
• The effort for implementing strategies will not succeed unless
the price change is combined with a total marketing strategy
that supports it.
5. Product Differentiation
• The price of the product also depends upon the characteristics
of the product.
• In order to attract the customers, different characteristics are
added to the product, such as quality, size, colour, attractive
package, alternative uses etc.
• Generally, customers pay more prices for the product which is
of the new style, fashion, better package etc.
EXTERNAL FACTORS
• The external factors are those factors that are not within reach
of the organisation. They are external because there are many
parties that determine and control these factors.
• The business organisation is a party to the external factor and
cannot control or determine the aggregate indicators of these
factor.
1. Competition
• Competition is a crucial factor in price determination.
• A firm can fix the price equal to or lower than that of the
competitors, provided the quality of product, in no case, be
lower than that of the competitors.
2. Demand
• For a new product, there is need to price such product
strategically in such a way that it penetrates the market, even if
it will be at par with the total cost, while for a highly demanded
product, an increase in price may not really have a high effect
on the demand for such products, so is the need for
management when making pricing decisions to consider the
demand for the product.
• Some companies who receive order from customers may
decide to reduce their price per unit or increase their discount,
when it is noted that demand from a customer is high, and this
may be on the other way round, depending on other factors
considered by the management.
3. Suppliers
• Suppliers of raw materials and other goods can have a
significant effect on the price of a product.
• The price of a finished product is intimately linked up with the
price of the raw materials.
• Scarcity or abundance of the raw materials also determines
pricing.
4. Economic Conditions
• The inflationary or deflationary tendency affects pricing.
• The prices are increased in boom period to cover the increasing
cost of production and distribution. To meet the changes in
demand, price etc.
5. Consumers/ Customers
• The various consumers and businesses that buy a company’s
products or services may have an influence in the pricing
decision.
• Their nature and behaviour for the purchase of a particular
product, brand or service etc. affect pricing when their number
is large.
6. Government
• Price discretion is also affected by the price-control by the
government through enactment of legislation, when it is thought
proper to arrest the inflationary trend in prices of certain
products.
• The prices cannot be fixed higher, as government keeps a close
watch on pricing in the private sector. The marketers obviously
can exercise substantial control over the internal factors, while
they have little, if any, control over the external ones.
CONCLUSION
• Price is a the sum of value that the customer exchange for
benefit.
• Pricing includes all that the firm is offering along with the
product.
• There are certain factors that include pricing decisions. They
are broadly classified into internal and external factors.
• Internal factors include cost, objectives, factors of organisation
marketing mix etc. External factors include demand, supplies,
policies by government, competition etc.
