Re: Buying by weight and selling by pieces

Thanks everyone for your answers.

    First I tried Graeme's suggestion, enabled the UoS and tried that. It did not work well, even when setting the UoS Odoo expects the sales person to enter the quantity in UoM and will only inform the corresponding qantity in the UoS. Maybe I was doing something wrong but I believe that is how it works and it is not what I need.

    Next I followed Nhomar's suggestion and it does work well. Unfortunately I need to have two product entries, one for the product purchased in kg and another for the product sold per piece.

Best regards,

Marcelo

no one ever heard of the "purchase_secondary_unit" Module? https://github.com/odoomrp/odoomrp-wip

It provides what you want I think: Buy products in a different UoM then you use (KG > pcs) and sell with a coefficient that can be defined individually per product

Hi all,

  In my company it is common for us to buy something by weight (per kg) and sell it by piece.
  In Odoo (v7), I cannot save the product if the unit of sale and unit of purchase do not belong to the same class. Is there a module that allows me to buy per kg and tell the system how many pieces on average there are in one kg? (or in other words, define a "conversion factor" for units not in the same class)

   Also, is it possible to have a product with different Unit or Purchase for different suppliers? So supplier 1 sells per kg but supplier 2 sells per 1000 units. If yes, what module would do that?

Best regards,

Marcelo
