Adding the cost per unit or case of your products is crucial because it is used to calculate your inventory value, cost of goods sold, dish/drink costing, and more.

Adding Costs is typically done during your venue setup. You can add the costs item by item, or download a list of your items and upload it after making changes.

You only need to enter the costs once, then as you receive orders and add invoices, the costs will update automatically based on the latest invoice.

You can choose whether the cost reflects the most recent invoice, or is a weighted average of your total stock. You can learn more about Weighted Average Pricing here.

Note: When entering the cost, make sure you are using the pre-tax cost.

You can add your costs on the WISK Web Portal or mobile app.
