Damaged items awaiting repair
Hi, I have a retail store with several locations. We often have partial stock, (where we take a part out the whole item and sell that and then reorder that part to put back into the whole item) in the back room that is awaiting parts to repair it and put back in the front of the store for resale, but not enough to warrant purchasing an entire new location in Lightspeed. I read somewhere here a while ago that someone else just created a customer called "Damaged / Awaiting repair" and invoiced them out at 100% discount. And then voided the sale when the spare part came back and we put the item back on the front office to sell. My question is, should I also zero the cost when I invoice it to Damaged? Because if I don't the margins for the day are all skewed, but if I do then when I void the sale later it comes back into stock at zero cost.
Is there a better way to do this or which option should I use for costs?
