Adding options: cost price for modifiers

Hi, Would it be possible to add a cost price option for modifiers? This would assist greatly in keeping the food/item cost accurate.
I think it would also be handy to have a stock number (quantity) counter for Modifiers.

Just want to follow up for this inquiry as I also have same concern. We are selling Ice Cream and the customer has an option to add toppings (such as candies, oreo, etc) as modifier. In the modifier list, we can put the price but the cost has no field. If the cashier punch in the options, on the Gross Profit, the cost of modifier is not included, thus the GP goes up.. Is there's a way to add this cost of modifier in the modifier setting?

YES! It would be nice if there was a way to add cost to the modifier (and composite maker) that way the price changes as the amount of modifier/item changes.

You can update the pre-made composite item varients to include the unit (cm/m/in/y, gram, kg, lb, pieces, etc.) of each component/product in the cost section.

It would be nice if there was a way to use the modifier in a similar fashion.

Name of product
cost per unit
type of unit in cost of product section (cm, in, meter, yard, milliliter, pieces, gram, etc.)
quantity sold

retail price for the amount sold to be automatically calculated as well as manually (right now retail price is only manual)

whether or not the unit of the product shows up on the receipt should be an option

It will help if there was a calculator on how much a client should pay for labor, shipping, and handling. (time, distance)
Example: An employee makes 10/hr but works for only 5 min for a client. How can the employee quickly and easily calculate that?

better variant finder for composite and non-composite items
the search results still yield too many options and if you try to narrow it down the searching stops

We are a salon and often we have customers who have longer than usual hair length and we might need to chargr extra for these. Modifiers help us to add certain value over the selling price. But it would help if we could decide this markup on the spot rather than predefined.
Hello, thanks for the suggestions. Do you run a restaurant? Or perhaps a cafe? And also how do you use the modifiers, can you give us some examples? Thank you very much! uses cookies. By continuing to browse the site you are agreeing to our cookies policy. Learn more Ok
