Why does Vend use a different Average cost than the one showing on the Product Page?


Latest update: - Agata

Question

When checking the Average cost figure showing for a specific Product on its Product Page, it is not the same as the cost used to calculated Cost of Goods Sold in my Sales Report. Why is that?

Setup

  • Vend for Mac or PC

Answer

If you have more than one Outlet in your store, the Average cost showing on the Product Page is the Average of the costs across all Outlets. 

Additional Information

The actual Average cost used in each Outlet can be checked in the Inventory Report.
