Is there any plan to add "Cost Per Item" to the Orders Export file or is there another way to pull this value with the orders? The costs of my products vary greatly and are entered when a product is created. Paying my vendors the profit is very involved without this info.
Right now, I have to export products & orders, then use multiple lengthy formulas to combine the product and variant options so that I can do a VLookup to get the cost. It seems like a value that would be critical to many site owners (more so than the Lineitem compare at price) when viewing your sales.
The BeProfit - Profit Tracker app could be exactly what you're looking for. You'll get a dashboard that lets you track and analyze your profits and expenses including marketing costs, shipping, production, and more (you can manually enter expenses as well).

Try BeProfit and let us know if you find it helpful. Plus, if you have any suggestions on how we can improve the app, we're always happy to get feedback!
I'm also looking for this, and was about to ask the same question. I know it's in the Shopify Analytics dashboard, and I can get it from my bookkeeping, but would be nice to be able to run profit reports with the exported sales data.
The BeProfit - Profit Tracker lets you create custom reports to drill down into any/all of your expense and profit data. You can also schedule reports in advance so you get them emailed to you as often as you wish. Plus - you can export reports for your own bookkeeping/accounting purposes.
If there's anything you find missing in the BeProfit Shopify calculator, you can submit a feature request to the Support Team and they'll respond to you quickly.
Give the app a go, I think you'll find that it adds real value to your store!
