Hiya,

Thanks

Hi Amirah,

Thank you for your response. I have a few questions as I have viewed those links when setting up the composite items.

1. Does the stock count need to be done prior to adding a composite item? Track stock enabled?

2. I sell a range of fruit frappes and need guidance on this - is this deemed a variant given it also uses composite items like cups etc?

3. As the admin user, can I hide items from the POS on my phone as I can see the range of coffee for sale but don't want the cup variants etc to be seen in the POS? Would I have to add another user for this?

Regards

Brendan

1. If you would like the item's stock to be depleted then you must turn on the track stock for the ingredients before starting selling the composite item, When you start selling the composite item, the stock of its ingredients will be reduced accordingly.

2. Variants cannot have composite items, they are only options that you choose to sell with your items (their stock can be tracked, have their own barcodes and their own cost)

3. All employees who have access to the POS will be able to see the items on the sales screen with their variants, it is not possible to hide this. However, with employee management it is possible to hide the items list on the POS for example so employees will not be able to modify items

      My situation is the following: I want to sell Whiskey, but I could sell it with the following options: Coca Cola, Coca Cola Zero, Water and On the rocks (for example). I know I can make variants of an item, but how would it be possible for me to keep track of stock if I'm creating a new stock for each variant. 
      So basically, If i order a Whiskey Cola, then stock should be removed from Whiskey and from Coca Cola (Which is a separate item, but we use it as an addition / variant to the Whiskey).
       
      Could anyone help to find a logical solution to this? Or would I simply have to substract (each day) all the mixes variants to the original items?
       
      Thanks,
      Tom.

      I am making cocktails. For instance, I have a bottle of Jack Daniels that costs 20EUR. I use 60ml in one of my drinks. However the size of the bottle of Jack is 700ml. 
      The cost of the item of Jack does not take into account the size of the bottle. So when making the composite item I cannot say 60ml, Instead I have to say 60/700 or 0.0857152. This is just an annoying calculation I have to do for every single cocktail.

      Am I missing an option where I can enter the initial ingredient bottle (Jack Daniels) to be priced per ml, rather than per bottle. Which would save me time calculating new measures for each different bottle size I have?

      I run a small Pizza shop.
       
      Every day I make new dough. The dough is a composite item, but since I make it every day, I do not want to make a "Production" because thats unnecessary admin.
      The pizza consists of single items (cheese, tomato sauce, etc.) and the dough, a composite item.
      When I sell a Pizza, it only tracks the stock of the single items (chees, tomato sauce etc.) not of the ingredients of the dough (flour, salt, yeast).
      The tutorial says, that when a composite Item is sold, it tracks stock. In my case I sell this composite Item, through the Item pizza (so we have a hyrarchie).
      How can I create composite Items, have a Master/slave relation and track the stock of the item on the lowest level?
      Thanks!

      Hi,
      I have been reading and trying quite a bit about this issue but I cannot solve the problem.
       
      I am running a coffee take away with loyverse. so far everything is perfect, but when it comes to stock management, I have a big problem:
      example
       
      We are selling a café latte
      the options are small, medium and large (different cups should be booked in the system)
      Type of milk (stock should be taken off the milk the customer chooses, for example 0,3L of oat milk in a medium latte)
      Topping such as syrup, adding 0,50€ to the bill and also tracking stock of this ingredient(for example: 0,015L of syrup)
      There should be a "no cup" option, for my staff or customers that bring their cup, it also needs to be reflected in stock that there was no cup used)
       
      Those are just a couple of the options, but I think they all have the same problem
       
      If I activate composite article, I cannot add variants. If I add variants, I cannot control the stock with those.
       
      It would be awesome if anybody has a solution for this. Thanks :)
