Different Products have different units. iconicERP allows you to add different units for products.
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.
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.
For some products, not all sub-units will be required. Suppose for example you sell 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 the option to select multiple applicable sub-units. Selecting the sub-units will allow you to make purchases or sales on these selected sub-units.
Secondary units can be added to products. A secondary unit can be used if a particular product’s subunit may vary each time. For example, 1 piece of stone can be 10 kg 20 kg, or 30 kg.
To enable this go to Settings-> Business Settings – > Products.
On enabling this, a secondary unit label will be shown in the add/edit products screen.
Selecting this product in the purchase/sale/POS screen will also show the secondary unit label.
The details of secondary units for products are shown in the product stock history of that product.
NOTE: The secondary unit is not considered for calculation. It is only used for the user’s knowledge of tracking the products with varying subunits.
