Yes it is a good idea to include supply prices in all stockable products so you know from reports what your real profits really are. It is also a good idea to close all the Purchase Orders which are automatically created by ShopMate for all stockable products and issue a payment for each even if you do not send it away to suppliers. This will keep your stock automatically updated for all stockable products.

Stockable product is a product that you physically keep in stock on your premises (obviously not a labour product which is always 100% profit) and periodically re-stock it, meaning you buy it with your own money. You mark a product as Stockable in the Base Products form by checking the Stockable check box. If you keep doing all these things, your books will always balance correctly.
