Unit Priced Items

Unit pricing is used for basic items that don’t have a set price because it varies based on how much a customer purchases. Examples include bulk goods, items sold by weight, or deli items.

Create Unit Priced Items

Create a unit priced item in BackOffice so you can sell it at the register.

  1. Log into BackOffice and add a new basic item.

    Only basic items can have unit pricing. Items with variants cannot be unit priced.

  2. Select 'Unit Price' for the Priced field.
  3. Enter a 2 letter abbreviation for the unit used to measure the item.

    For example: oz, lb, kg, etc.

  4. Enter the sale price per unit sold.

    You cannot round to the nearest hundredth here (i.e. if you enter 4.039 as the price, the system will automatically adjust the price to 4.04).

We recommend using Bulk Management to import inventories in excess of 50 items.
