Export Pricing
To become a successful export venture you need to have the right knowledge about export pricing methods. This always includes all items meant for costing and the way your products are provided. As (prospective or performing) exporter, always ensure basic knowledge regarding all activities constituting export pricing.

Top tips for export pricing
Ensure your prices are competitive
Ensure all export-related and -associated costs are covered
Know your break-even points
Set realistic profit margins
Know the INCOTERMS for pricing purposes
Try to negotiate best rates from service providers
Keep abreast of exchange rates
Review all of your cost elements periodically
Include appropriate currencies and HS code(s)
Include minimum order quantities

INCOTERMS
Be very clear about the obligations for seller and buyer. This includes spelling out where ownership is transferred between you as exporter and the importing party. Basically, knowing the INCOTERMS in detail is indispensable. Check our detailed explanation about INCOTERMS on the logistics & freights page.

Cost categories for export pricing
Make sure to cover all export costs when setting your export pricing. These include local export costs, international export costs and other associated export costs.

Pricing methods
The most common methods for price calculation are the ‘cost plus’- and ‘top down’-method. In order to achieve best results in setting your export price we recommend to use both methods together. This means that you calculate:

Outwards your ex-factory price to the end consumer (cost plus)
From the ideal end consumer price backwards (top down)
As both methods have is strengths and weaknesses, you should calculate both and combine these to find the optimum export pricing balance. Please note that this could be different per export destination!

Roles of NEPC
We offer numerous services to Nigerian exporters with respect to export pricing. To summarise we:

Provide regular capacity building programmes on costing and pricing for export
Offers tailor-made assistance to exporters (office, online media, etc.)
Provide top-down export market information (international commodity price)

Formally submit your proposal

3. Diverse and Consistent Production
Nigeria’s large geographical size translates to a diverse range of climates across the country. These diverse agro ecological zones provide conducive conditions for the production of a wide variety of agricultural products in the country, while also ensuring consistent supply.

4. Well developed export logistics
Nigeria is amongst the top African countries in sea freight and cargo handling. Apapa port is the largest in West Africa. Tin Can port was among the top 5 largest ports of West Africa in 2017 as well, based on total cargo volume. Total cargo throughput at Nigerian ports reached over 70,000 kilotons in 2017, according to the Nigerian Bureau of Statistics (NBS).

Re: Feasibility On Agro Export Business/comprehensive Cost & Profitability Analysis by Ltrust(m): 5:45pm On Feb 05, 2019
Nigeria Business Culture
Nigeria, with over 180 million inhabitants is the most populous African country and 8th largest in the world. It has the strongest economy in Africa. The country operates a democratic government which has remained uninterrupted in the last 20 years. As a founding member of several economic blocs and international organizations, Nigeria is therefore a regional power house.

Do’s and Don’ts
A hand shake is the acceptable form of greeting. However, you may find people bowing to their superiors and the elderly as a sign of respect. Do not be surprised when a Nigerian exporter takes a bow during the greeting.
Greetings should always include some interest in your acquaintances, family and health. A common conversation opener: “how was your night”? It is just a polite sign of interest in your well being.
You may be treated to the Nigerian hospitality with your host paying the bill. Do not feel uncomfortable, but remember to appreciate the gesture.
The left hand rules apply here. Do not take or give anything with the left hand, because it might be perceived as disrespectful.
In timing, Nigerians are flexible due to its peculiar environment. Stay relaxed, be prepared and do not feel frustrated if appointments are delayed.
Complimentary remarks are appreciated, but be cautious and moderate.
Re: Feasibility On Agro Export Business/comprehensive Cost & Profitability Analysis by Ltrust(m): 9:13am On Feb 06, 2019
Business communication
Communicating is generally very easy in Nigeria. English is the official written and spoken language. In addition, there are 3 major languages (Hausa, Igbo & Yoruba). “Pidgin” English is also spoken. It is widely accepted to communicate in a direct manner. Be clear and specific in agreements and avoid ambiguity. Make sure that the contractual conditions for both parties have been determined and that they are legally valid.

In an informal setting it might be easier to get the information you are looking for. Therefore, informal meetings are good for doing business and recommended to international buyers.
Re: Feasibility On Agro Export Business/comprehensive Cost & Profitability Analysis by Ltrust(m): 11:02am On Feb 07, 2019
Hierarchy
Be mindful of hierarchy in your business meetings. Identify the decision maker and endeavour to identify different job positions and their roles. Start talking directly to Nigerians by using their title, as they like formalities.


Religion
There are three major religious practices in Nigeria (Christianity, Islam & African Traditional Religion). Don’t be alarmed talking about religion with Nigerian people. You can be open minded in your business dealings. In public, be careful with alcohol in certain areas because of the Islamic culture especially in the Northern states.

Re: Feasibility On Agro Export Business/comprehensive Cost & Profitability Analysis by Ltrust(m): 6:47pm On Feb 16, 2019
Export business is a lucrative business to venture. It holds vast potential that is highly untapped and its development in Nigeria has been a positive one. The uptrend is largely due to the advancement of Information Technology and the downside fortune of the crude oil market forcing investors and government to explore alternative markets. Now, the future is non-oil products like sesame seed, ginger, shea butter, cashew nut, gum arabic, bitter kola etc. You will have known the world is like a global village and anyone can communicate with one another in real time due to the globalization of business.

You have decided to venture into the export of agro commodity from Nigeria. Due to varied nature of the export trade, you won't want to make a financial mistake. You won't follow a linear pathway. You will need a broader perspective. You will need a guide. You will need a business plan, a bankable plan, a comprehensive plan that will give you a roadmap in this industry. A business plan that details on the financial analysis with in-depth profitability analysis that specifies the return on investment based on the local and foreign prices of the different commodities.
