How to Create a Composite Item

Composite items consist of a number of other items (components).

In the back office, go to ‘Item list’.

'Item list' menu

 

First, you have to create the components of a composite item.

Create them as you would ordinary items by clicking on ‘Add Item’ button.

‘Add Item’ button

 

Give your item a name. If any component is not sold separately in your store, deselect the check-box. ‘The item is available for sale’, so it will not be seen in the items list during sales.

Fill in the cost field and save the component item.
If the ‘Track stock’ is switched on, then, during the sale of a composed item, the components’ stock will be reduced.  

After you have all the components, you can create a composite item by clicking on ‘Add Item’ button again.

Then switch on the ‘Composite item’ option in the Inventory section.
