Using Non Inventory Items

Need Suggestions:


We do not tract Inventory - 98% of items we purchase and resell are drop shipped.  Items

are always different as well.  We sell Business to Business Lighting products.  I am looking

for suggestions on using the non-inventory function.   I want & need to list the items # 's on invoices so we have data for warranties and rebate features. Do I need to enter each item as a separate non-inventory item?  Or can I list each mfg as a separate item and list item under description?  Do you have a similar situation?  what works for you?  Need idea's. Thanks

Using Non Inventory Items



If you need data for warranties and rebate features later, it's better to create each item as a separate non-inventory item. Use Name field and SKU field as you want. If you've Mfg. part number, you may want to use it as SKU number.

You can then run the "Sales by Product/Service Detail" report and by filter the run either by product/service or SKU. Both reports should provide sales data you may need to handle warranty and rebate sales.


Hope this helps!
