    NET Multiplier Calculation

    The following formula can be used to determine the appropriate NET Multiplier for the commission amount.

    In this example we are using a 12% commission amount.


    Base Price Percentage: 100% Rate - 12% Commission = 88% Base Price Percentage

    Base Price Divisor: 88 / 100 = 0.88

    Retail Price: $100 / 0.88 = $113.64 (113.6363636363636‬ rounded to 2 decimal places).

    Multiplier: (100 / 0.88) / 100 = 1.1364 (1.136363636363636 rounded to 4 decimal places).

    Gross Rate: $100 * 1.1364 = $113.64


    See NET Multiplier Examples for examples of the Net Multiplier for various commission amounts and the formula for calculating them.
