MC Coke Business: Profit from buying supplies?

I searched the site but couldnt find the answer I was looking for.

 

I am wondering what profit margin can be made from buying all your supplies for the coke factory.

 

Today, with both product and supply bars empty, I purchased 75k worth of supplies (full supplies) and it only made half of a small bar of product, which I was able to sell for 36k out of area. Needless to say it looks like I lost 39k.

 

Is my business glitched? I can't see how this is the correct way for it to work as I would need at least 10 full supply bars to fill the business that would then only sell for 360k out of area. Causing a loss around 400k.

 

Are you guys getting similar results? Does someone have actual profit margin numbers?

 

Info:

Coke business near Alamo sea

-personnel upgrade only

 

Thank you for any help!

The update boned MC profits.

 

MC work was never really appealing anyways.

Coke is currently glitched. When I buy when the supply is empty, a small bit of supplies is missing which makes me miss half a bar of product. For me, fully upgraded makes 1.5 bars, not the expected 2 bars. The second load works and makes 2 bars.

 

Fully upgraded, Coke should still be the best. Coke takes 12.5 supplies and far sales make $232.5k profit for a far sale when you buy supplies. Meth also needs 12.5 supplies and makes $169.5k. Counterfeiting takes 10 supplies and makes $144k. Weed got changed to 9.5 supplies and makes $109.5k. Documents takes 7 supplies but only makes $36k.

 

In my opinion, all but Documents are worth it when fully upgraded. Buying supplies and doing the delivery takes 45 minutes or less per business spread out across several hours. Actual effort for the profits is a good ratio and you can make more by doing other work, or do real life stuff, in the downtime.

Yeah...I'm having issues with the coke factory as well. Revenue from buying 75k worth of supplies seems to vary between 84k and 168k for me right now (I sell as soon as the 75k runs out as I usually play solo).

 

I wonder if stealing a batch before buying the balance would help.

For Coke, you'll make $50,000 for every $75,000 you spend. That goes up to, I think, $93,000 if you do the 'long' run. That's with full upgrades.

 

I only ever sell two bars at a time because it's boriing as f*ck, $75,000 gets you two bars worth of supplies.

I don't think it's glitched, the second time you buy supplies the bar gains more. As far as I know, you need to resupply two times only in order to get a full stock of finished product.

 

So (420 000 - (~2*70 000)

= (420 000 - 140 000)

= (420 000 - 140 000)

= (420 - 140)

= 280

 

~ 280 000 profit with cocaine business, if the premise that two resupplies are enough to fill it is still valid and your business is fully upgraded.

1. Full supplies are 75k

2. You need to resupply 2.5 times so 75+75+45 = 195k. 420 - 195 = 225K. There's your profit.

 

Also OP, you need to fully upgrade your business so it produces between 1.5 - 2 bars of product after purchasing a full batch of supplies.
