If a product has also Selling multiplier defined, Net content is scaled accordingly.

Net content compatibility with a possible stock item match is only validated when the product is edited in Back Office. Therefore, if the product has a stock item match and if you are editing product Net content using Excel import, please make sure that the product’s unit of measure is convertible to the stock item’s unit of measure. Otherwise sold products cannot be reduced from their stocks.

Select the Selling Multiplier checkbox to enter a selling unit multiplier for the product. Selling unit multiplier can be used for creating drinks, cocktails and such. A maximum of four decimals can be entered.

Products which are sold based on weight or pieces can be weighed with a scale and sold using the bar code printed out by the scale. The bar code contains information the work station needs from the product, its measure, and price. Basic products can therefore be set as scale products. Typical examples of this are fruit and vegetables. Short code is based on the components below, and it is four digits long.

A scale product whose Measurement is Weight must have Kilograms as the Measurement unit.

A scale product whose Measurement is Pieces must have Piece as its Measurement unit.


When a new product is added it is not part of any stock. When the product is added to a stock via inventory or purchase order, the stock information of the product will be visible in the product details.
