I tried tracking expenses in Excel, but it was very clunky and I wasn't sure I was doing it right. With Craftybase, I know I've got it all covered and I can see how my expenses fit into the bigger picture.Lindsay, Craft Brewed Suds
Inventory + Bookkeeping for Makers
An all-in-one business management software designed for handmade craft sellers. Ditch the spreadsheet so you can see your real-time inventory and COGS, track expenses and make more sales.
Automated Cost of Goods Sold makes tax time a breeze
Most bookkeeping software simply isn't designed for the complexities of handmade manufacturing - your costs of goods sold (COGS) needs to be much more than just a guestimated number posted to a ledger every year.
Craftybase calculates accurate, fully auditable COGS based on your manufacture and material cost history, and compiles a Schedule C Report instantly with the numbers you need.
Your complete manufacturing history, including internal labor costs are fully tracked so that you can see exactly how much it costs you to make your products.
Know your real-time inventory
Keep sortable, fully searchable product and material lists - available online, whereever you are.
Maintain full purchase histories for everything you buy and let Craftybase do the hard work to calculate your exact current inventory value.
Create recipes for commonly used combinations of materials, with associated recommended pricing guidance and detailed profit margin calculations.
Track the hidden costs of making sub-assemblies using components. Our powerful and flexible unit of measurement tools allows you to convert purchased amounts into trackable units instantly.
Set prices confidently when you know your exact costs
Confidently set prices for your products based on your exact current costs of production.
Simply list the materials and amounts you use to produce your products and Craftybase will constantly monitor and calculate up-to-the-minute recommended pricing and your estimated profit margins, including Etsy fees and commissions.
Create pricing tiers and price points for your retail, wholesale, consignment and online sales channels and configure unique markups for each.
Stay on top of your business with detailed reporting
