Recently, we released the COGS quantity break feature at the variant level. In order to bring the useful feature for our customers, we continue developing it, it's available for the product level now.

Please go to Calculation > Product Cost > click on the Edit icon at the product you want to edit, you can see 2 options to set up the COGS: Fixed price and Price range.

Fixed price is a COGS of an item. The total COGS of the same multiple items will be multiplied.

Fixed price

If you tick on Calculate all items as product, you can not edit the COGS of variants in this product. This means if an order has multiple variants of this product, the total COGS will be multiplied the items with the COGS of product.

II. Price range

With Price range, you can set the COGS based on item quantity.

For these settings, let me to show you some examples to clarify it:

- If you have an order has 5 items of the T-shirt: 5 black. The total COGS = (15*1) + (13*3) + (10*1) = $64
