For you to link a product to multiple purchase products, you can use a Bundle item. It is a combination of multiple or Group items you often sell together into Bundles so you can easily add multiple items to transactions.
Here's how to create a bundle item:
Go to the Sales menu. Then, select the Products and Services tab.
Click the New button and choose Bundle.
Check the box for Display bundle components when printing or sending transactions and add the product or services in the line items.
Can I set up one sales product which will be linked to multiple purchase products?We sell a salad but we buy many ingedients to make it. How to create this?
Thank you for your response.
But I don't think that bundle will be ideal as I cannot provide sales price for each item in the bundle. For example, if I have a beetroot salad with walnuts I sell the whole salad £4 and I don't have separate prices for beetroots, olive oil, salt etc that I have used to create my final product.
I think that I will use non-stock items for those I sell, and either stock (so I can track my inventory) or non-stock (I will post an adj. journal every month after the stock count) for purchases.
Yes, it is okay to use non-stock or stock items to track the products, then adjust the stock count through a journal entry if you didn't track COGS for your inventories. If you did, you need to manually adjust the inventory by reducing the materials used and increasing the finished product.
