I am using QB Essential. Suppose I ordered a dozen T shirt at cost of $3/shirt. Then I printed it with an additional cost of $2/shirt . Total cost $5/shirt. I am selling at a price of $8/shirt with a profit of $3/shirt. Now how should I manage those cost and price. What accounts should I create or charge to, so my cost and profit are separated and eventually I know my taxable income. Please explain that.

QBO is not really suited for this even if you had QBO+ with inventory


Post the purchase price to an asset account you name purchases, that includes the printing price


for each shirt you sell do a journal entry (or several shirts at one time)

debit COGS and credit purchases for the total of $5 * number of shirts sold


you may have to create an account called COGS in essentials, I am not sure if it has that type of account but if not the account type can be created as an expense type account
