Order Item Cost Regeneration


You can easily rebuild your Order’s P&L in Sellercloud if the product cost has changed. The Items Cost on your Orders’ P&L is calculated based on either the product’s Site CostAverage Cost, or Last Cost depending on how the calculation is configured as per the Order Profit & Loss Calculated Using client setting.

After changing the item cost for any product in an order, you should regenerate your Order’s P&L to apply the latest changes. You can update either an individual order or a bundle of orders via a file import.

To learn more about the Profit and Loss report on the individual order, refer to Order Profit & Loss Overview.
