# How to Calculate Profit per Transaction in Sage Intacct

### Making the most of your Sage Intacct data

## What is Profit per Transaction?

Profit per Transaction is the amount of profit your company makes on each transaction. It's calculated by dividing the total profit by the total number of transactions.

For example, if your company made $100,000 in profit and had 100 transactions, your profit per transaction is $1,000.

This metric is important because it helps you determine how much profit your company is making on each customer. If your profit per transaction is low, it's a sign that your company is not making enough money from each customer.

If you have a low profit per transaction, you need to figure out why and take steps to improve it.
