Re: Track sales packaging costs

 A solution could be to use a consumable product with a nominal value e.g. $1.
Then the warehouse user could add the qty (value) of the packaging in the delivery order.
The margin report needs then to pick up this extra line. You'll need to customize It.

Here is a functional issue I could use some brain sharing.

A sales order needs packaging to be shipped to the customer.
But product margins are tight and, depending on the value of the products sold, packaging costs can have a significant impact on the sales margin.
Adding to the Product cost an extra amount for average packaging costs is not a solution, as the actual packaging costs depend on the sales order composition.

This looks a bit like "landed costs" but for sales.
It also looks a bit like "additional carrier shipping costs", but is an inventory expense rather than a vendor bill to be paid.
There is no hard requirement to include the costs in the COGS, we are more interested in margin analysis.
Thanks for sharing your ideas
