  • How you price your water depends on the circumstances involved, such as water collection, quality, distance, cost of the treatment facilities, and the treatment's complexity. For example, water produced in a modern treatment plant using surface water will be more expensive than others. The best practice for pricing bags is to analyze your competitors and calculate your costs using Shopify’s free profit margin calculator.
