Adding Units #

  1. Go to Settings -> Units
  2. Give the unit name, a short name, and choose if want unit to allow decimals.

Example:
Name: Meter
Shortname: Mtr.
Allow Decimal: Yes.

  • 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.

Steps:

  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”
  • Provide the conversion Details.
  • 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: You will not see the main Units (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.
