To save those (like myself!) looking for info on how to update MCP, here is a post from Scott w/ instructions:

The instructions are on the account info tab.  (They are there because that's where you can convieniently go to copy you download key).

Put your download key and user id in on the download page.

Save the new file and your old file in the same folder.

Run step one on the old file, close it.

Run step 2 on the new file.  Done!


Using MCP now for a couple years and still love it!

*No longer a need for GoDaddy bookkeeping.

Thanks again Scott and Hunter!

Exemplary customer support gents! Great to see you constantly looking for ways not only to make MCP better and in the end make it better for a wide range of sellers.

Thanks and yes Scott, won't allow through my balance. Guess i'll have to do eBay as subscription ends either today or tomorrow. Will wait a bit to hopefully hear back.

Hi MCP User, thanks for sharing the link.

Do you mean variation listings?  They supported by MCP, they automatically populate the relavent data into the variation section.  You may have columns in that section hidden...

I assume you dont ship through the eBay shipping program which would automatically update MCP with the exact shipping cost, and I assume you mean changing the shipping cost on the Product Master tab...  You can change it there; the updates will only affect new sales on download.
For the button click to apply to existing sales, it will only effect sales that have a blank value... in other words, if you already have a shipping price in the sold item tab, it will not overwrite it.

Lastly, MCP is a yearly subscription!
If you purchased it on eBay it is not setup for auto renew, but it is still only active for 1 year (365 days).


Thanks, on "variations" listing I see only one field for item purchase cost. The variations have different purchase costs, where do I enter those costs and will MCP automatically know which ones to match those up with?

Thanks much and will be purchasing another year of MCP!  =)

*PS: MCP is setup only to accept Credit Cards and I prefer not to give them my Credit Card info, any other option or just repurchase through eBay?

Thanks Scott, much appreciated.

When you buy the new subscription, is it simply a key so all of your past sales etc stays the same?

Am I able to buy it now and it will automatically start when my current subscription expires?

Also, unable to locate on MCP when it was started and would appreciate some guidance.

Thanks Hunter and Scott,

A few other MCP Tutorials not shown on above link, you may find useful HERE>

Also, I'd be very grateful if you'd upload a How to integrate Multiple Choice listings into MCP when you have a chance.

Since USPS fees have gone up recently, is there a way to change the postage fee from that point on without having it effect past sales with old rates?

*Another suggestion (sorry, almost everyone else who thinks a one time purchase should last eternally!) to keep MCP alive and your bills getting paid, perhaps set it up on a yearly subscription service?

 I love MCP as it saves me a lot of time and energy, does exactly what I need and customer service has been there when needed . Thanks much for this program!

Thanks much Scott! Will post but no discount on next purchase necessary as I love the software.

Have also used GoDaddy's version and much prefer MyCost Pro.

Thanks again and Happy New Year!

Thanks for the update!

Please be so kind to explain how to update mycostpro as I don't see a link to do so on the spreadsheet. (perhaps this may be a helpful add for next update?)

Also, will all of my information automatically transfer over to newly updated version? If not, please explain how to.

Thanks very much, enjoying mycostpro!

Hi, in multiple items listing, can MCP pull each individual item sold to populate template? If so will it list that specific item or just the Title of auction into Sold Items page?

If unsure what I mean, on a listing at top some have a drop down where you can select a specific item from auction.


Hi Scott,

My tax guy who uses Excel frequently recommends (and it totally makes sense) to add an additional column at far right showing a total of all 12 months totals. Then there is no need to manually add up all the months totals.


Hi, what specifically does Overhead Expenses  on the Annual Performance Analysis page gather all of these expenses from?

Thanks much Scott, always appreciated.

Since sellers often have to absorb the cost for item to be returned, where would we enter that fee?

Thanks again.

Thanks Scott,

I've filled in how much I originally paid for product under the PRODUCT MASTER PAGE and clicked FILL IN MASTER PRODUCT DETAILS button.

When I look at my Refunds that are hidden on SOLD ITEM LIST PAGE it is populating the refund with the amount the customer originally paid for shipping and not the refund of the actual item.

A refund given a few weeks earlier is correctly showing for the item and shipping.

My question is, can I manually go in and edit this mistake and also add in return shipping fee from here?

If not how do I correct this?


The 'click layout assist' button is on the SOLD ITEM tab.  The refund is a per-line item cost (meaning it is tied to an individual sale or transaction).
The Expense tab is to account for expenses or fees that do not tie to a specific sale (for example, you had to pay for your warehouse rent, or if you want to record the monthly ebay store fee).

Let me know if I misunderstood your question or if I can help further!

Thanks Scott,

Found it with your help!

Since on a refund we also have to often pay return shipping fees would that amount be entered on that same page manually and if so in what field?
