Agent disclosing the profit amount to the seller

Q: A man has left a motobike with me for selling. He mentioned a price of R13 000. He also said that I can make a profit out of it. I have found a buyer for R15 000. Do I have to tell the seller the amount of profit I have made or can I just pay him what he wants. Will the profit of R2000 be halaal for me? 

A: No, you do not have to tell him.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
