Nosto for Shopify now allows you leverage your cost-per-item field via Nosto's Intelligence Engine.
The advanced dynamic filtering allows you include and exclude products by leveraging your margin data. The margin is calculated using the formula ([price - cost] / price) 100) and is shown on Shopify's product details page. For example, if your price is 50, and your cost is 30, then the margin (calculated as ([50 - 30] / 50) 100) is 40%. We recommend reading Shopify's detailed product pricing guide to learn more.
In order to set it up, you'll need to reinstall the Nosto app for Shopify. Reading the cost-per-item property requires some additional permissions and this can be done via a simple reinstall.
Once you've clicked on the Nosto app in your apps section, you'll be prompted with a permission dialog that resembles the following image.
Once you've reinstalled the app, we'll begin collecting the cost-per-item data organically. In order to expedite this process, simply initiate a one off reindex. https://help.nosto.com/settings-and-troubleshooting-faq/tools-product-reindexupdate
