We cover merchandising transactions and cost flow assumptions.

Merchandising transaction, those transaction that deal with inventory, including the purchase of inventory and the sale of inventory. We will discuss related topics including sales discounts, purchase discounts, sales return and allowances, shrinkage and the cost of goods sold calculation.

Inventory costs and cost flows, including what is included in the cost of inventory and how to account for inventory freight costs, inventory insurance costs, and discount. We also discuss inventory flow assumptions including specific identification, first in first out (FIFO), last in first out (LIFO), and weighted average methods. FIFO, LIFO and weighted average methods will be discussed using both a periodic inventory system and a perpetual inventory system. 

In addition to instructional video, this course will include downloadable

The PDF files allow us to download reference information we can use offline and as a guide to help us work through the material.

Excel practice files will be preformatted so that we can focus on the adjusting process and learning some of the basics of Excel, like addition, subtraction, and cell relationships.

Multiple choice example question helps us improve our test-taking skills by reducing the information into the size and format of multiple choice questions and discussing how to approach these questions.

Short calculation questions help us reduce problems that have some calculation down to a short format that could be used in multiple choice questions.

Discussion Question will provide an opportunity to discuss these topics with the instructor and other students, a process many students find very helpful because it allows us to see the topic from different viewpoints.

    April 2021 - Update - Course audio improved

    Are you ready to take your creativity with you wherever you go? Do you want to learn how to sketch, ink, and paint in Procreate, the best digital illustration app out there? Do you want to know how to place your original illustrations on t-shirts, mugs, posters, pillow covers, and much much more? If you've answered yes to any of these questions, this is the perfect course for you.

    For as long as I can remember, I've loved drawing. Since I was a kid, I could always be seen with a notebook of sketching paper and a handful of graphite pencils. Before the introduction of the iPad and Procreate, I could only create awesome digital art on my desktop computer with a Wacom tablet.

    I've been using Procreate for over 7 years now and I can't imagine life without it. In this course, I will show you in-depth, step by step, how I create art in Procreate. I go even further by showing you how to export and place your art on print-on-demand products for yourself or to sell.

    Take this course to learn how to use Procreate but come back to learn how to grow your new skill.

    Here are a few things you may take away from this course:

    • How to navigate Procreate efficiently. 

    • How to pick the right tools in Procreate for sketching, inking line art, painting, and more demonstrated in real-time.

    • How to apply the skills you learn to any project in Procreate whether a cartoon or a detailed comic book illustration.

    • How to import my custom color palette to speed up your portrait drawing workflow.

    • How to color, adjust colors, and add convincing shadows and highlights.

    • How to use tools like selection and move to streamline your creation process.

    I have also completed a workbook that I will be updating from time to time as I add additional content. Please use the workbook as your cheat sheet and artwork blueprint.

    What is NOT covered in the course:

    My goal with this course is just to get you started. You could stop after taking this course, but I recommend diving deeper into some of the topics I cover. Here are some things I may touch on but won't dive deep into.

    • Every single menu option in Procreate

    • Animation in Procreate

    • Photorealistic painting

    • Advanced lighting techniques

    • Setting up an online store to sell your art or products although I do show you how to get your art printed on products.

    But please feel free to ask me questions about these topics and I'll do my best to answer.

    I look forward to teaching you all that I know!

    Retail buying and merchandising is a very exciting field that looks at how retail enterprises go about planning the buying and selling of the right products, at the right place, right time, in the correct quantities, to the correct customer and at the correct price.

    However, it isn't an easy topic to get your head around and that's largely due to the fact that the subject matter is littered with specialised terminology, concepts, jargon, acronyms, etc. For individuals who are new to the field it can be quite daunting to understand what these concepts mean, let alone getting a full picture of how everything ties in together to realise the complex clockwork of the buying and merchandising cycle.

    This beginner course in retail buying and merchandising is quite special - special in the sense that it isn't your regular textbook or mishmash of explanations and it doesn't make assumptions on prior knowledge. This means that you'll be able to connect with the concepts regardless of your educational or professional background.

    Furthermore, the course decomposes the topic into a number of fundamental but interrelated perspectives that describe the subject matter in a logical way. These perspectives define the course structure and also allow the discussion of useful examples taking into account the real-life industry aspects.

    The course comprises of a range of audio-visual lectures with exercises towards the end of each relevant section to test your understanding of the topic.

    So, are you ready to go from newcomer to all-rounder in retail buying and merchandising? You've stopped at the right course that's going to fast track your learning in record time!

    Visual merchandising is the first type of selling in the retail industry. Your window displays will sell your product before a buyer reaches the store. And, once they've been persuaded by your window displays and entered your store, your in-store layout will influence whether they remain or leave before your sales professional speaks with them. That is the significance of visual merchandising. It raises brand awareness, tells your brand story, and strengthens brand loyalty. Retailers will reap the benefits of visual merchandising if it is done correctly and with innovation and originality. As a result, shops should be well-versed in visual merchandising.

    Retail involves the sales of goods from a single point ( malls, markets, department stores, supermarkets etc ) directly to the consumer in small quantities for his end use. Retailing is nothing but transaction of goods between the seller and the end user as a single unit ( piece) or in small quantities to satisfy the needs of the individual and for his direct consumption. There are different kind of retail outlets such as departmental stores, discount stores, supermarkets, warehouse stores, mom and pop store, specialty stores, malls and dollar stores.

    There are different types of retail pricing models for the retail business such as cost plus pricing, competitive pricing, prestige pricing, psychological pricing, multiple pricing, discount pricing. Cost plus pricing mechanism: Every organization runs to earn profits and so the retail industry. Cost plus pricing works in the following principles: cost price of the product plus profit ( decided by the retailer) is equal to final price of the merchandise. According to cost plus pricing strategy the retailer adds extra amount to the actual cost price of the product to earn his share of profits. The final price of the merchandise includes the profit as describe by the retailer.

    The display of the product in the retail store must entice the customers. The merchandiser in coordination with the store manager must ensure that the products are according to season as well as latest trends.
