An ecommerce or retail business doesn’t have to have an accountant but it’s a very good idea. The monthly cost of accounting for ecommerce business and retail stores isn’t much and the value is more than made up in avoiding mistakes and the insights and financial information you receive from experienced ecommerce accountants will help you grow your store.

Loss prevention in retail is taking proactive steps to reduce loss in your retail environment. Retail stores often lose money through common problems than can easily be prevented, such as theft, shrinkage, human errors and wastage. These issues are quickly identified with effective accounting for ecommerce business and retail stores.

Accounting for ecommerce businesses involves managing online transactions, dealing with various payment gateways, handling international sales and taxes, and often requires specialised ecommerce accounting software. In contrast, accounting for regular businesses primarily focuses on physical transactions, inventory management, and may use different types of accounting software.

Your final retail selling price should cover the cost price of that product and leave enough margin to contribute towards operating expenses (rent, utilities, insurance, etc) plus leave some profit for yourself. Don’t miss out on our expert guide for ecommerce pricing strategies
