Minimum Order Calculator
As a farmer, you never know exactly how many units of product your customer is going to buy. As a result, your earnings are at their mercy. How can you take agency of this situation to have more control over your business and your profits? Start by setting a Minimum Order Value.
A Minimum Order Value (MOV) is the lowest dollar value that you will ship to your customers. Setting a MOV guarantees a minimum profit per order, while also ensuring that the cost of distributing your product is not too high per order. Our calculator allows you to plug your values and spits out your personalized MOV!
