Sales Volume FAQ's


How do you calculate sales volume?

Multiply the sales price by the expected sales volume to find the expected revenue. For example, if your company expected to sell 50,000 frisbees for £5 each, your expected revenue equals £250,000. Multiply the sales price by the actual sales volume to find the actual revenue.
