Purchase Price

Use these settings to define the purchase price and VAT rate of a stock item. The price/unit is calculated automatically.

Purchase price settings

If you change the purchase price, you can update the purchase price in all stocks by clicking the Apply changes to all stocks switch to ON position; a confirmation window is displayed.

Click Apply and then save your changes to update the purchase price in all stocks.

Display Unit

Display Unit is used for displaying stock item's quantities in different views of the Back Office, as well as in Excel exports. It is essentially the company's desired unit for tracking the stock for an item.

Base Unit

Measurement, measurement unit and/or net content of the stock item, defined in the product settings of the product linked to the stock item.

If the product is enriched with GS1 data, Net content cannot be changed in the Back Office.

Changing the base unit details is also not allowed if a stock item has selling items and/or ingredients. To change the base unit details in these cases, see Changing the Base Unit Details of a Stock Item.

Net content describes the stock item's net content in Solteq Commerce Cloud and can be used for items whose Measurement is Pieces. For example, the net content of a can of beverage would be 0,33l (per piece).

For GS1-based stock items, net content is standardized to kilograms and litres, so that if Net content is selected as the display unit, then the net content is displayed in litres (for example) instead of millilitres. Litres is likely a more suitable unit for tracking the stock than millilitres.

In general, for GS1 based products, net content is received from GS1’s net content field. As an exception, if GS1 net content is provided in pieces or portions, or if net content is not provided by GS1, net weight is used as net content unit instead.

Supplier Data

Supplier’s Global Location Number (GLN) and name.
