Users may want to keep track of an item’s availability, but not its cost. Typically, this happens for items like boxes or pallets. To set up a zero cost item, take the following steps.
- Create a new inventoried product in Acctivate. In our example, we’ll call ours “Box”
- We’ll set the cost method to remain at average
- Save the changes
- Now on receipts, enter a 0.00 unit cost whenever receiving this product to keep the cost at 0.00
As long as you do not post a receipt with a unit cost associated with this “box” item, then the cost for the item will remain at 0.00.
