If I define a product to by purchased in units but sold in boxes of 500 units, what weight and volume represent in the product template, the weight and volume of a single unit or a 500 units box weight and volume?

You have two fields in product form.

Unit of Measure(uom_id) , Purchase Unit of Measure(uom_po_id).

uom_po_id is for purchasing.

and uom_id is for all other usages.

That means weight and volume are based on the uom_id(Unit of Measure) field.


Thank you.

So just to fully clarify, this means that if my UOM is "500 units boxed" the volume and weight of such box shall be used, right?
