Overview

The Profit Margin Report is capable of defining a per-Product Category (Department or Category) Target Retail Margin that the report then reports against for products.  This article walks through configuring this Target Retail Margin value.


NOTE: This report requries the Profit Checker Report Package to be installed on your instance.  If you are missing the links in this article, open up a ticket with our Cloud Retailer helpdesk.

    1. Click on the Product Category in the treeview
    2. Click the Edit Selected Product Category(s) button
    3. Find the Product Category Tabbed Attribute Set Form section
    4. Click on the Profit Checker Settings tab
