The default view of a dynamic kit does not show the cost of the stock selected within the kit, but it may show the sell price of the individual lines of stock, depending on what is set on those stock records (see the estimated stock costs on the Cost tab in the footer on a job).

To see the approximate cost of the kit contents, by adding the following setups:

1.On the ribbon, go to Tools > Setups > Price Levels and add a new Price Level, eg. Kit Cost.

kit cost1

Edit every stock record that is selected in a kit, and add the new price level and appropriate Price Calc Method (on the Pricing tab in the footer) to ensure the real cost is captured, eg Max COGS + Markup. The markup percent can be zero or whatever is deemed to be realistic so the costs are not understated.

Please note that these prices do not automatically update when the individual stock prices change. These need to be updated manually.


If there is a large volume of kitted stock, Happen can write a custom menu script to force the pricing to update. Please contact for more information.
