Most companies attain profit by managing production and other processes in a business. The shipping methods of purchase and sales orders are maintained efficiently in business operations. There is a massive cost for operations in some cases, and firms charge it for vendors/customers. A company faces a loss without charging any shipment price for commodities. It is easy to resolve this issue through the landed cost terminology in business. The total expenses related to product shipping are known as landed costs.

The first stocked products/lots move out first by selecting the FIFO, and LIFO ensures the last stocked product moves out first. In addition, products nearest to the target location move first in Closest Location, and the expiration dates setting depends on FEFO. Costing Method and Inventory Valuation for products manage quickly from the Product Categories window. The conditions in which the Costing Method is set for Inventory Valuation include Standard Price, Average Cost (AVCO), and First in, First Out (FIFO). Products are valued as per standard cost using the Standard Price option and the weighted average cost for products valued by selecting the AVCO.

Users can also set the Inventory Valuation as Automated or Manual for product categories.
