This causes the determined selling price to often experience errors indetermining the cost of goods sold (COGS) which has an impact on the amount of gross profit. Inaddition, batik entrepreneurs do not pay attention to product marketing techniques, and do not evenhave a special concept in packaging their products. Based on the initial visit of the communitydedication team, the fact that the craftsmen only use plastic bags in packaging their products.However, this seems to be due to the fact that batik entrepreneurs have just risen since their businesshas decreased due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
