How to calculate Profit Margin for print-on-demand business?

The simple formula to calculate the profit margin for a print-on-demand business is 

Profit Margin = [(Selling Price – BasePrice) – Platform Fee] / Selling price * 100

The selling price of the T-shirt is Rs. 699

The platform fee is 10% of the selling price of your order. 

Profit margin = [(699-350) – 69.9 ] / 699 * 100 = 39.9%
