I'm leveraging an ETL tool to move Shopify Orders into Quickbooks as Sales Receipts, which works great. The probably I'm running into is finding a tool that can reconcile bank deposits with Stripe.

How to display prices including VAT on Facebook?

The integration with Facebook is pretty neat. However it shows prices excluding VAT, which is illegal in certain parts of the world.   How can I configure it in such way that the price includes VAT. If this means we have to write stuff in liquid or javascript, that's fine. Is it possible?

Inventory of food product went bad. How do we track this in Shopify?

Hi there, We recently had about $17,000 of food product go bad. We tried to just subtract it from our inventory by creating an order for the total quantity and then giving it a 100% discount. Unfortunately, this shows up as $17,000 in sales with a $17,000 discount, which skews our reports. How can we properly subtract this inventory to show them as a loss rather than sales?   Thanks. ...
