Shipping Cost Calculation
I was offered 100% discount on some items from a supplier, WellAir
We had 2 items on order at 210$ no dicount, and 3 other items totalling about 8 000$ USD at 100% discount.
Shipping charge was 370$ Canadian.
When we allocated the shipping charge to that specific PO, it costed the items in a silly way (I think DEAR needs to review this, in general):
It allocated 100% of the shipping charge to these 2 items for $210, (105$ each). So now my stock value for these is cost + 100% of the shipping charge, when in fact, cost should be less, because the full value of the order was higher, minus the 100% discount attributed to procucts.
In other words, my products at ($8000 - 100% supplier discount) have 0$ cost associated to them, even though they represent a huge percentage of the total order value without that supplier discount associated to them.
These items should have cost their proportional value in shipping cost, instead of just 0$ to them, and 100% shipping cost to those 2 other smaller products I ordered that didn’T have a discount associated to them.
Does this make sense?
Now, when I sell these smaller items, system will show -% in Margin and profit. When that simply is not true.
