Cost lists are a set of products purchased from a supplier along with their associated cost. When a supplier is added, a cost list named 'Standard' is automatically created. Only add a cost list for suppliers that offer multiple rates such as a standard rate and a bulk rate.

When creating a purchase order, the cost list will determine which products and costs are displayed.

Step-by-step: Add a Cost List

  1. Go to Purchasing > Edit Costs.
  2. Click Edit Cost Lists button.
  3. Click the New Cost List... button.
  4. Select the supplier and type in a name.

The 'Standard' Cost list cannot be deleted unless the associated supplier is deleted. Other cost lists can be deleted if they don't have associated products or purchase orders.

  1. Go to Purchasing > Edit Costs.
  2. Click Edit Cost Lists button.
  3. Click the cost list in the Cost List column and select Delete.
