Question and answer
what are the pros and cons of markups and markdowns?

Markdowns are reductions from the original selling price. [ The pros of mark downs are that the consumer will think she is getting a better deal and will be more likely to buy the product. The con is that
you won' make as much money. The con of markups is that fewer people will buy the product the more expensive it becomes. Thanks! ]
