Manage Product Units

Different Products have different units. iconicERP allows you to add different units of products.

Adding Units

  1. Go to Products -> Units
  2. Give the unit name, a short name, and choose if want the unit to allow decimals.

Name: Meter
Short name: M.
Allow Decimal: Yes.

Allowing decimal allows you to purchase/Sell the product in decimal and vice-versa.

Multiple Units:

This can be useful if you purchase products in a different unit and sell it in a different unit.

For example: Purchase in dozens and sell in pieces.
Or purchase in boxes and sell in pieces.


  1. Add the lower unit from Add Unit Screen. For example pieces.
  2. Add the higher unit as per the screenshot, Check “Add as multiple of the unit” and provide a conversion formula:

NOTE: You will not see the main Units (Dozen in this example) in the Add-Product Unit drop down, select piece as the unit of product. All purchases/sales get saved in the lower unit (pieces in the above example). So after adding purchases/sales if you edit the conversion details, it will affect the purchases/sales quantity accordingly.

Selecting relevant Sub Units for a products

For some products not all sub-units will be required. Suppose for example you sell Oranges only in Dozens or only in pieces then it will be useful.

Enable it from Business settings ->Products -> Enable relevant sub-units

Now when adding products select the Unit for the products and it will give option to select multiple applicable sub-units. Selecting the sub-units will allow you to do purchases or sales on this selected sub-units.
