The sentence is from a business talk about the amount financial loss, which is caused some of their products being damaged during transportation. The man from the company says:

"Of course we build that loss into the prices we quote for our exports."

I can understand what he meant by "...build that loss into the prices". He means they increase the price of their exports to balance the loss caused by those faulty products.

But, I have been trying to find a better and easier expression for this, rather than "build that loss into"?

Do you any such easier and clear expression?

    "We allow for that possibility when fixing our prices" would be one way. Dec 1, 2021 at 9:04
