Response:

PCD/Franchise model works as ethical marketing. Only difference is that company doesn’t involve in direct marketing but appoint a pcd distributor or franchise to market its product and provide goods at net price basis and provides a handsome margin to fulfill all basic need of marketing and sales promotion. Read in Detail about franchise/Pcd Model and how it works here

You need to fix price to retailer and price to stockist/wholesaler as practicing in your area like 20%, 18%, 10% 8% etc. How much margin is big pharma companies providing to retailers and wholesalers. You can calculate accordingly. You can learn calculating Price to retailer, price to stockist and Maximum retail price by clicking here
Margin in pcd business is calculated by including all expenses i.e. retailer margin, stockist margin, marketing and promotional expenses, tour expenses etc.
Suppose Net Rate: N

Retailer Margin: R
Stockist Margin: S
Expenses and Commissions: E

How to Hide Rates from Stockist in Pharma Franchise Marketing?

Query:

First of all Thank You Very Much for your website. I got much knowledgeable information about Pharmaceutical Franchise from it. 

Nowadays, I am working as a Pharma Marketing Professional since 2 years. But, I have planed for Pharmaceutical Franchise. As I haven’t Drug License, I will do it with appointing a Stockist/Distributor.
For this I have less knowledge in some scenarios. Like :

  1. I don’t want to disclose my Net Rate with Stockist/Distributor?
  2. I don’t wish to disclose Net Rate to my MR’s?
  3. After appointed a Stockist. Can I stock medicines in my own home?

Kindly resolve my issues/doubts as soon as possible.

Response:

  1. If you will purchase through appointing stockist/distributor then there is very very less chances you can hide rates from distributor. In one way you can hide rates from distributor/stockist if company invoice at stockist rate and that will not be possible by a company to do it at regular basis because how they will show increased profit margin. If any company will be ready to invoice at stockist rates then you can hide rates from distributor.
  2. You don’t need to show rates to MR’s. You can handle distributor by own. Don’t disclose any rates to MR’s.
  3. You can’t stock medicines at home. It is illegal to stock medicines at without licensed premises. Medicines can be stocked at licensed premises only…

Response:

From business prospective, you should start from area where you have stronger relationship with gynecologists whether it is Agra or Rajasthan. Your first concentration should be at establishing your own franchise marketing. If you have stronger contacts in Agra then you can start from Agra. Once you will have established your market in Agra, you can proceed or expand your business in your Native Land and leave a medical representative in Agra then.

Start is most crucial thing. First you should concentrate at your strongest zone but don’t let down your links at your native area. Select area with highest potential for you regardless of your native land or not.
