This can really hurt, or even destroy, your business. So, it’s time to get your COGS under control.

Are you calculating an accurate cost per SKU?

The first step in getting your COGS under control is calculating an accurate cost per SKU. Are you including all costs associated with getting your product to your door (landed cost calculation)? This calculation can get complicated, and time-consuming, with the more SKU’s you have to handle.

Are you recording COGS at the right time?
