Cost, Price, and Value

Cost, Price, and Value

What is Cost?

“Cost is a monetary valuation of effort, material, resources, time and utilities consumed, risks incurred, and opportunity forgone in production and delivery of a good or service”.

Business Dictionary

Cost is the amount of money spent on the manufacturing or production of a good or service in a business. A profit margin is not included in the cost.

Cost is the amount of money paid to create a product or good from the perspective of a seller. Sellers would break even if they sold their products for the same price as they cost to make.

What is 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”.

The Economic Times

Businessballs also defined price as the amount agreed upon between the buyer and seller in a commercial transaction.

A price is the quality of a good from the buyer’s perspective. This is the sum a vendor charges for a product, and it includes both the expense of making the product and the profit margin added by the seller.

What is Value?

“Value is the monetary, material, or assessed worth of an asset, good, or service.”.


Price Vs Value

The most critical distinction between price and value is that price is subjective, while value is objective.

Price can be described as the sum of money that must be paid to obtain anything. And value refers to the usefulness or worth of a service asset for a person. The sum of money paid by the purchaser in return for any good or service is referred to as the price. The price of a commodity is the money charged by the seller, which includes the expense and profit margin.

The amount you pay is referred to as the price. The value of a good or service is the amount it costs you. This value may be calculated in a variety of ways, including monetary terms, emotional terms, physical conditions, and so on.

Cost Vs Price

A customer’s willingness to pay for a good or service is referred to as price. Profit is the difference between the price charged and the expenses sustained
