Monstock propose to create logistic units on products in order to place customer orders and supplier orders by multiplying the ordered quantity by the packaging. The quantities are reflected directly on the product on which the logistics unit is set up.
To create a logistic unit, you must first have created a handling unit type whose dimensions et weight will be will be taken for the logistic unit. See our tutorial on creating a handling unit.
First, you have to activate logistic units in General preferences, under Settings tab.
On the web:
Once the Logistic units parameter is activated, the "Edit logistic units" button appears on all your product pages, in the "Price" insert.
To create logistics units on a product, go to the product page and click on this button. A pop-up opens asking you to enter the name of the logistics unit, its handling unit and its packaging. We recommend that you name the logistics unit in the same way as the parent product, adding packaging. Example: Product name - by 6. You can choose the type of handling unit used and the quantity it contains, then save.
Note: it is then possible to configure a sale price or a purchase price attached to a logistics unit.
You can create as many logistics units as you want on your products, then place an order on them. See our tutorial on logistics unit orders.
To use logistics units on mobile, you must first have created them on the products concerned on the web.
