loisliu88 can anyone explain it for me. thanks
Patrick15 the discounted payback rate will decrease the value of the returns, the payback period maintains the present value without discounting, so each payment is worth relatively more
jonan203 if a $1,000 investment pays $250 every year for four years, if you discount each $250 payment by x% discount rate, you wouldn't have your $1,000 investment back in the fourth year no matter what discount rate you used.

the larger the discount rate, the larger the payback period becomes
Shaan23 DOes it matter if its Conventional or Non conventional?

Isnt it the same for both?
jabiller I believe conventional means always positive cashflow and non means there would be negative cashflows or returns.
