Our price / quantity calculator - also called unit price calculator - lets you compare products of various different quantities and prices. Imagine that you're in a shop and you want to work out which product has the best deal (that is it is sold with the lowest margin), but are not sure how, then this tool is for you.

For example, let's say you're hungry for a pancakes, and need to buy some flour. You're in the shop and have two choices; a smaller package - $1 for 1 kg, and a larger one - $1.35 for 1.5 kg. Which one is a better buy? Thanks to our price / quantity calculator, you know that the unit price for the smaller package is $1, while for the larger package it is 90¢. The You Save box tells you how much more you'd have paid if you bought the same quantity at the price per unit of a smaller item - in our example - 15¢. If you want to know how much you will save on an offered discount you might want to check out the discount calculator.

In some countries and stores, the price per quantity information is provided on the price sticker, so, if you take a closer look, you may not need this unit price calculator at all. Still, you might find yourself in a situation where that's not the case, for example when the price comes up in a conversation.
