Use ordering units to supply ingredients packages to the stock. For example, supply liquors in bottles of 700 ml each. Specify the number of bottles and Poster will calculate the number of liters supplied and price per liter.

To create an ordering unit:

  1. Go to Inventory → Ordering units in the management console.

  2. Click Add.

  3. Write the name of the packaged product. For example, “Bottle 700 ml”.

  4. Select Unit and Quantity of the products in packing.

  5. For example Unit — l and Quantity — 0.7

  6. Click Save.

Once the ordering unit is created, add a supply.

  1. Go to Inventory → Supplies in the back office.

  2. Click Add.

  3. Enter the supply time and date.

  4. Select a Supplier or add a new one.

  5. Select a Storage where ingredients are going to be supplied to.

  6. Select the account to withdraw funds.

  7. Add liquors to the supply.

  8. Select the Ordering unit next to the ingredient supplied.

  9. Write the number of bottles in Quantity

  10. Enter Price per piece meaning price per bottle.

  11. Save the supply

Now Poster will calculate the cost and number of total liters supplied according to the number of bottles.
