Figure 41 – Product Units
Figure 42 – Add Unit
1. Go to Settings - Units
2. Give the unit name, a short name, and choose if want unit to allow decimals.
Allow Decimal: Yes.
Allowing decimal allows you to purchase/Sell the product in decimal and vice-versa.
This can be useful if you purchase products in a different unit and sell it in a different unit.
For example: Purchase in dozens and sell in pieces.
Or purchase in boxes and sell in pieces.
1. Add the lower unit from Add Unit Screen. For example, pieces.
2. Add the higher unit as per the screenshot:
Check “Add as multiple of another unit”
Figure 43 – Add multiple of another unit
Provide the conversion Details.
3. Use the unit in Add/Edit Product. While adding/editing purchase/ sale you can see the dropdown for units. Select the desired unit and it will change the unit purchase/sales price accordingly.
NOTE: The main Units will not be seen (Dozen in this example) in the Add-Product Unit dropdown, select piece as the unit of product. All purchases/sales get saved in the lower unit (pieces in the above example). So after adding purchases/sales if you edit the conversion details, it will affect the purchases/sales quantity accordingly.
Selecting relevant Sub Units for a product
For some products not all sub-units will be required. Suppose for example if you are Oranges only in Dozens or only in pieces then it will be useful.
Enable it from Business settings - Products - Enable relevant sub-units
Now when adding products select the Unit for the products and it will give option to select multiple applicable sub-units. Selecting the sub-units will allow you to do purchases or sales on this selected sub-unit.
