Ability to specify product's costs and see accounting reports

Maple Hosting shared this idea 5 years ago
Under Consideration

I would like to be able to specify the cost of each product and/or configurable option and/or addon so that when a customer makes an order I can see how much he paid and how much it costs me and my actual revenue from the sale.

We should also be able to see reports using this new information such as how much actual revenue was made.

I think it is quite clear that once you have the cost of the product the options are endless and will allow something I think most WHMCS users would like.

I think this could be somethign very useful, as you say having the cost will open up many new possible features.

For instance, it would be nice to have the pricing of the system done automatically, So lets say i want to make a 5% markup on each item, i dont feel its ideal to have to calculate each product price. It would be far better to be able to set the cost price, tell the system the rate we want to apply and then just update all pricing.

I took this idea a step further and mocked up a couple images where this could be integrated and seen in the admin area. This would save me hours of calculating up the profit of my online store and moving things over to quickbooks where I could just leave it all in WHMCS...

This is necessary to having cost per-product so we can calculate precisely how much cost and revenue specially for some product are resell from other party.
