When you enter a purchase into CellarTracker do you add the cost of shipping and/or tax to the per bottle price?
base price, no tax, no ship… only method that allows apples to apples comparison…
Always add all the related expenses that I paid to get the bottle into my cellar. That is, after all, what it actually costs.
Yes, the total cost of getting the wine in my cellar.
I would say apples to apples needs all-in pricing! Shipping/no tax; shipping/tax; no shipping/tax; no shipping/no tax are all possibilities for me. Only way to compare is all in. Likewise, if I get a wine on sale, I use the sale price, even if it doesn’t go on sale again.
All that said, it would be great if Eric could add an optional field for other costs (shipping/tax/buyer’s premium/whatever). I suppose that wouldn’t account for free shipping (which of course isn’t really “free”). But it would avoid this problem.
All in pricing. Always.
I enter the total cost. That is what is important to me.
Only the price of the bottle - tax and shipping I exclude
Yup. All tax and fees and shipping etc included.
I only enter the wine cost. If I ever want to source more I use that to compare to the retail offer. Death and taxes are a given.
No. I want to track the general value, not down to the penny.
Half the time I don’t even enter a value. The other half I make something up to screw with the community average.
Also, we cover this thread about 6 times a year. There was a similar thread about 3 weeks ago.
Only the bottle price, unless there is an extremely high cost associated, like overseas shipping, in which case I make a note. I assume I will have to get all bottles into my cellar, and shipping will always be a predictable add on almost regardless of vendor (see previous caveat). I want to be able to compare my price paid with future prices I see at auction or retail.
That said, I do include any auction house buyers premium.
wine cost only
I add in shipping/sales tax, etc. Gives me a basis number should I ever sell the wine.
Do you discount the price for the cork, glass bottle and label?
No just the value with no tax and shipping included
Bottle price only.
All-in. If I want to source more, I use that to compare to the all-in retail offer.
If I can’t put it in my hand for the listed price, that isn’t the price.
