  8. Approaches to Export Pricing • Cost-based pricing: Export price is based on full cost and markup or full cost plus a desired amount of return on investment. • Marginal pricing: Export price is based on the variable cost of producing the product.

  9. Approaches to Export Pricing (cont.) • Skimming versus penetration pricing: Price skimming is charging a premium price for a product; penetration pricing is based on charging lower prices for exports to increase market share. • Demand-based pricing: Export price is based on what the market could bear. • Competitive pricing: Export prices are based on competitive pressures in the market.

Group F • Free carrier (FCA): Place of delivery could be the carrier’s cargo terminal (seller not obligated to unload) or a vehicle sent to pick up the goods at the seller’s premises (seller required to load the goods on the vehicle).

  11. Terms of Sale (cont.) • Free alongside ship (FAS): Requires the seller to deliver goods to a named port alongside a vessel to be designated by the buyer. Seller’s responsibilities end on delivery alongside the vessel. • Free on board (FOB): Seller is obliged to deliver the goods on board a vessel to be designated by the buyer.

  12. Terms of Sale (cont.)
