Purchase Orders and accounting for shipping cost paid to vendors

New Member

When I receive products from my vendors, I need the ability to input the shipping charges I pay to my vendors so that I can accurately track and see reports for my overall cost of inventory. 

Any suggestions? I know that I can include the cost of shipping in the field labeled "Cost per item," but the issue with that is the cost of shipping incurred fluctuates with each order received.

I think you need a custom app for such purposes. Not many people need such a solution, so there are not many apps that can solve your pricing cases. We have developed an interesting solution for large stores that have slow-moving inventories. This enables you to discount products by brand, variant, and other attributes based upon sales data of the past. You are welcome to try it out.
