Why use this plugin?
Whether you produce your own products, or buy through wholesale, you want to track the profitability of your products and your store. To do this, you’ll need to manage the cost price of your products.
These Cost Prices (sometimes referred to as ‘direct costs’) are called the Cost of Goods Sold (COGS) and we have integrated dedicated fields to manage these in your WooCommerce product pages.
What is COGS and how does it help me?
COGS is sometimes also referred to as ‘cost of sales’ or ‘cost of merchandise’ but in short it refers to the production or purchase costs for products sold in your store.
Technically, these costs are an expense of your business, and in the end they reduce the revenue your store makes from selling.
So far not a big deal, but once your business grows, it might get tricky to keep track of profitability all of your products.
This plugin allows you to plan, simulate and summarize both your costs, stock value and margins in one place in the WooCommerce product pages so you get an instant overview of how your business is doing.
Why would I manage my _Gross Margin_?
As a store owner, you calculate a variety of figures to determine the health and performance of your business.
One of these figures is Gross Margin, which is an important factor for you when assessing your business risk and profitability or when you are setting prices for your goods or services.
It’s not always easy to understand the impact of changes in cost and sales prices, especially when your stores grows.
In the WooCommerce product pages, we have created a neat overview to track all of these changes and show the final gross margin for all your products.
3 reasons why it’s important to calculate _Gross Margin_
Knowing the gross margin for your products is essential in assessing your store’s profitability.
That sounds like a no brainer, but in reality it is easier said than done.
Calculating Gross Margin lets you know how much of profit you’ve got in order to meet obligations other than those related to your products and services.
With this plugin, you can create simulations and different scenarios to see the impact of changes in pricing on margin. Instantly.
2. Save Money & Resource
We have taken the calculation of gross margin a step further by evaluating it on a per product basis. This can help you determine if higher cost materials have been incorporated into production. Perhaps too much is spent on a particular product.
Your gross margin may indicate a need to use materials at a lower cost, or buy your products at a lower cost. Maybe you need to increase your retail price slightly to make more money.
This plugin will help you to determine just that.
3. Break-even Point
Calculating gross margin is also a key element to knowing your company’s break-even point. Your break-even point tells you the amount of revenue you must make in order for to make your business a success.

Gross Margin and Pricing
There is another important reason for knowing your gross margin. It can help you pinpoint any pricing issues.
Pricing issues exist if you charge too much or too little for your products, as both of these can prevent you from making a profit.
Pricing items too high might scare of your average customer. Pricing your products too low, in the hopes of gaining more customers, is a strategy that might work against you, too.
We help you simulate the impact of any change in pricing up front, so you know what the impact on your profit will be.
