Each building's price is calculated with the following formula (without taking discount upgrades and auras in account), rounded up to the next integer: where M – the number of that type of building currently owned;
F – the number of that type of building you have for free (cursors and grandmas you get from Starter kit and Starter kitchen prestige upgrades.)

Or, equivalently: For approximate calculations when one is not in the mood to use a calculator, this translates roughly to a doubling of price every 5 buildings, and a thousand increase every 50.

Additionally, one may also want to know the total amount of cookies they'd spend if they were to buy the same building several times in a row. In that case, one must add up the price of each individual building in the list.

For reference, use this price multiplier for Buy 10: And this one for Buy 100: The cumulative price for N buildings is calculated as a finite geometric series: If you already got some buildings (for example, if you have 200 Cursors and want to know how much you will spend to reach 240), you can edit a bit the previous formula and get: Where a is the number of buildings you have, and b is the number you wish to have.

As a shortcut, here's a table listing the total cost of buying N buildings, as well as the price for each individual building:

Building No. Unit Price Total Cookies Needed
1 1 1
2 1.15 2.15
3 1.3225 3.4725
4 1.5209 4.9934
5 1.749 6.7424
6 2.0114 8.7537

You can get discounts with the following game elements:

• Season saving gives a 1% discount
• Santa's dominion gives a 1% discount
• Faberge egg gives a 1% discount
• Divine discount gives a 1% discount
• Everything must go gives a 5% discount
• Dotjeiess spirit gives a 7%/5%/2% discount on the Diamond/Ruby/Jade slot
• Fierce Hoarder aura gives a 2% discount
• Reality Bending aura gives a 0.2% discount (stacking additively with Fierce Hoarder aura)
• Summon Crafty Pixies spell gives a 2% discount
• Fortune Cookie upgrade #100 gives a 1% discount, and upgrades #001-#017 give a 7% discount to specific buildings
• Cheapcaps planted in clay give a discount of 0.25% each

These discounts stacks multiplicatively. The maximal possible discount is When selling a building, you are refunded quarter of the building's current price (0.5 with Earth Shatterer aura). This is actually 1.15 times the amount displayed on the button, as the calculation for the button label uses the original buying price of the building to be sold rather than the price of the next building to be bought. The actual refund of a building is thus 0.2875 (0.575 with Earth Shatterer) times the amount of cookies needed to buy it.

A Crafty Pixies backfire increases the refund by 2%, yielding a factor of 0.5865 (0.99705 with Earth Shatterer).

## Trivia

• Purchasing 650 of every building without any discount would have a cumulative cost of 36 vigintillion cookies.
• As the prices rise the more of a building you own, the price will eventually reach 21024, the max number of Double-precision floating-point format, a number too large to process, and the price will say Infinity and you cannot buy more unless you cheat to lower the prices or obtain more buildings, etc. Taking all the discounts and free buildings in account, the maximum numbers are 5,071 cursors, 5,053 grandmas, 5,031 farms, 5,014 mines, 4,996 factories, 4,979 banks, 4,960 temples, 4,940 wizard towers, 4,921 shipments, 4,902 alchemy labs, 4,883 portals, 4,864 time machines, 4,846 antimatter condensers, 4,828 prisms, 4,810 chancemakers, 4,793 fractal engines, 4,754 javascript console, 4,717 idleverses, and 4,681 cortex bakers.
