Has anyone dealt with the potential issue of cost price being a field on product template not on product product.

Thinking about the situation of product variants, where the average cost of each variant is likely to be different. How is this handled?

There is a huge discusion around that on community list,

Yes it is not possible set cost on product.product only different price per variant.

Fabien's words only 1% of people need these feature because 99% manage same cost per variant.

COmpleting this it is only due to what is a "Variant" in Odoo a variant is simply a feature which don't increase "any" other property of the product.

Personally I think it is a huge problem of concept because industries where the variant is majorly used are basically the ones where the cost and physical properties changes impacting direclty the cost, but it is not as Odoo is designed.

You will need to create a product per cost (at least by default).


PS: Don't forget say +1 if this answer works for you.



I have the same problem. I need set diferent cost price for product variants. For example i want buy a detergent of 450gr and other of 600gr. I have created a product "Detergent" with 2 product variants (450gr and 650gr) each with diferent cost.

But when i set purchase order the cost is the same for all product variants. This a big problem!
