How do I account for cost of non-inventory items in assembly products in quickbooks pro v18

I am building assembly product using one inventory item and also a non inventory item such as printed copies that can be massed produced therefor no need to keep on hand.  QBPOS is not accounting for the cost of the non inventory item which can be substantial. Example Phone holder with printed label.  Phone holder cost is $1.00 and printed label is $.50 and the label is non inventory so it is not accounting for a huge portion of my cost for this assembly.  How do I do that or how do I trick the system?

Thanks for elaborating your situation, shoppingthing.

I can provide some information about the issue you're getting.

The non-inventory items are generally goods or materials you buy for a specific job which you need to charge back to your customers. By default, they don't have value or quantity since these items are part of the process in creating the product.

The cost incurred in purchasing them are recorded under an expense account, which is why they show zero amount in the BOM section when building an assembly. If you want to show the cost of your non-inventory item, you need to put a check mark in the This item is used in assemblies or is purchased for a specific customer:job box when adding it.

If you're still unable to see the amount after doing it, please contact our QuickBooks Desktop Point of Sale representatives. They can securely access your account and check what's causing this to happen.

In QBPOS V18 I cannot find this option you mentioned I had already tried that.  "If you want to show the cost of your non-inventory item, you need to put a check mark in the This item is used in assemblies or is purchased for a specific customer:job box when adding it." This check mark is NOT there in QBPOS V18.
