Easy Access to Bulk Functions!

Did you know that Cost & Reports offers bulk functions for most of its columns? This means that you can make changes across multiple rows with just a few clicks.

For example, let’s say you want to increase the “other cost” value by 10 for all products. Simply type 10 in the input field, select “increase fixed amount,” and watch as Cost & Reports adds 10 to every row. Our plugin then adds this value to the cost of goods and suggests a new price for each product.

If you’re happy with the new prices, just click the “save all” button, and the changes will be applied to your selected products. But what if your new price comes out to a number like 12.37, and you want to round it to a cleaner price like 12.40? No problem! Cost & Reports offers a round function that adjusts the price to your preferred value. The markup is then automatically adjusted to match your new price.

Add cost and purchase price from product page

On the product page or on every variation of the product you can add purchase price and cost of goods. Cost & Reports offers a bulk editor function that enables you to quickly make changes across multiple products and variations.

Prices and cost / profit calculations

As a merchant, it’s important to have control over your product pricing, including adjustments for VAT. With Cost & Reports, you can easily adjust prices to include VAT and convert them to regular prices without any extra work.
