I found it quite frustrating to discover that Shopify doesn't support cost pricing as a feature out the box. I also found it hard to find an app that addresses this without having to pay for lots of unnecessary features on top. Simply cost does what it says on tin and has proved to be a simple but effective tool for managing COGS and a keeping track of our profit margin. One feature I would like to see in the future is automated reports- particularly so I can report the total cost value of our stock on a monthly basis :)
Great cost app. Sam is awesome, always quick to respond any time I have a question or have a suggestion. The app is easy to use, and easy to find information I need quickly. Highly recommend it!
Nice app to keep track of profit for products, inventory value and more
Great app for reporting the Cost of Goods.
Leggings For A Purpose
This app is very useful to track COGS, quantities sold and other analytics. Would definitely recommend.
Cbd Eliquid Store
Really useful app. Highly recommended.
If you're a UK seller, note that you have to apply shipping tax in your Shopify settings, rather than in the app itself - had us confused to begin with. Now that it's fully set up it works perfectly.
Definitely worth spending the time to set this up and manage it correctly. Saves a lot of time in the long run. As with any COGS / Profit calculations, the quality of the output is determined by the effort and accuracy you put in.
Very useful app to see if you are actually making money on your orders after shipping and transaction costs. The app also shows the total cost of all your inventory and the potential profit on it. The app is very affordable for people like me living in a country with a crappy exchange rate where a dollar costs me almost R15... Thank you for not ripping off the little guys in Africa like Shopify and some of the other Shopify apps.
The Banger Store
I took the time to update the cost for each item in my store, and the profit margin on the dashboard didn't adjust. Not to mention, they require the margins to be fixed to 0-100% markup, but some industries have a 3-500% markup. This makes their app not useful for all markets.
I used to write my own spreadsheets to work out all the COGs, Profit Margins, Inventory Stock Value (running) etc., but this software does it all plus so much more. I use this software every day. Completely worth every penny (and more). The best app l have ever installed into Shopify. Love it. Very happy. Thank you. You guys, you rock!
FAO SimplyCost... Developers, something to think about - any chance of being able to print out the reports directly from Shopify as they appear on the screen? This would be super helpful when preparing work to pass onto the account :)
Also if, in the future, if you are looking for little tweak ideas, it would be groovy to be able to sort information by clicking on the column headings from within Shopify for all of the report sections. Neither of these ideas are essential, as you can do these things easily enough by exporting the Excel file, but it would save a step or two and would just be the cherry on top of an already delicious cake.
No complaints here at all. So easy to use and worth its weight. This app is big for us for inventory Cost of Goods Sold. Do not need it everyday but when I do all my inventory cost is available with a click. Love it!
