Ordering costs
are costs incurred in preparing and processing purchase orders as well as in receiving and inspecting the purchased items. Examples of ordering costs include salaries of purchasing clerks, telephone, and stationery. Ordering costs go up as an entity increases the number of small quantity purchases. Total ordering costs plus total carrying costs equal total inventory costs.
