Adding a "cost" option when adding new items

Maybe this CAN be done and I am missing how to but it would be WONDERFUL if there was a way to add what I paid for an item when adding that new item to our shopify POS and storefront. This is an inventory management report that would be very useful to just about any shop owner.

 

If this can be done, can someone please tell me how? Obviously, this would be a feature NOT visible to customers.

Hi Tiffany,

Currently this is only possible with app integration such as Deepmine or Stich Labs.

That being said, I am interested in speaking with you regarding this field and your expectations of it if it were to exist in Shopify.

I'll message you directly,

I'm switching from ShopKeep and the cost of goods sold field and reporting is really great and important for a retail store to get data on profitability!

Definitely would LOVE to see this feature added ASAP!

+1 for cost - in any form (simple field or calculated cost of goods),

Andrew, I am willing to bet that most people would be happy to have a field to fill in for ballpark cost without regard to how it's treated on the actual books of the business (e.g. some stock bought for $10, later for $10.25). It is just a means of roughing out the impact of the sale on cash, etc.

I am almost finished building out a COGS app. Embedded right in your store admin. Just thought you might like to know.

Thanks everyone! We found a developer we are working with who is doing it for us. Can't speak highly enough about him! If anyone needs a recommendation let me know!

We would LOVE this. With a cost for each item, making a report to show profit from sales would be awesome. On our current stock inventory system we have this and it is used daily to show what money we are generating..... This would make a massive difference for us and i'm sure lots of users....

HunkyBill, can you do a SPROCKETS app next? :-) I think it's about the only subject you have yet to tackle.
