Define a pricing unit of measure if different from inventory unit of measure
You can define a pricing unit of measure (UOM) that can be used when a product item's pricing is based on a different unit of measure than its inventory unit of measure.
About this task
For example, let us assume you have a product item called Apples that are inventoried and sold using the unit of measure, Cases. However, the pricing is determined by the weight of each case. In this scenario, you would assign the product item Apples with the inventory unit of measure Cases, and the pricing unit of measure Weight.
You can define a pricing unit of measure from the Item UOMs screen.
To define a pricing UOM if it is different from the Inventory UOM:
- In the Pricing panel
of the Item UOMs screen, perform the following:
- Select the Pricing UOM is different from inventory UOM check box if this item uses a different unit of measure for pricing calculations from the unit of measure associated with the actual inventory of the product item.
- If you selected Pricing UOM is different from inventory UOM, then select from the Pricing UOM drop-down list the unit of measure you want to use to price the item.
- If you selected Pricing UOM is different from inventory UOM, then in the Default Pricing UOM Conversion Factor text box enter the conversion rate from the inventory unit of measure to the pricing unit of measure. For example, a product item has an inventory unit of measure of EACH, and a pricing unit of measure of CASE. Four (4) EACH make up 1 CASE. In this scenario, you would enter “4” as the conversion factor.

The pricing UOM that is different from the inventory UOM is defined.
