This article presents the interdependence of three basic pricing methods: cost method, a method that uses the relationship between supply and demand, and a method that considers prices of competitors. Based on queries, direct surveys and the results of other researches, the conditions of particular methods are discussed and the relationship between them is shown. The presented results are the evidence that the approaches to pricing problems differ significantly. However, a stronger tendency to search new solutions in this area has been recently observed among firms.
