  • Hello Ruth! I cannot calculate order cost ( order cost is lower than $1.00) with multiple unit of measurement. I use POS v9.
    Example: 1 unit cost $0.50 and 12 units should cost $6 but it show $7.60
    please help me to find the solution on this.

    • Hi Jovita,

      QuickBooks POS can handle unit order costs that are less than $1 so that’s not the problem.

      Make sure the Order Cost per each is correct ($0.50). This is different from the Average Cost field, which you should never adjust in the item record. You can also set a cost for the 12 unit case by selecting Manage Units of Measure and enter the 12 unit case in “The unit I normally order by” field.
