Notes on Kits
Making up a kit gives you the ability to bring up a group of items by just entering one number.
Kits are ideal for selling a combination of items such as a chain and sprocket kit, piston kits, service kits, spares packages etc. For example, a motorcycle kit could be a chain and sprocket set with an item number of CSSUTS125X comprising of exploded items such as chain (CH428H118DID), front sprocket (SF366-14) and rear sprocket (SR876-43).
Kits can be priced in two ways, Kit-priced – the system sells at the kit price but takes the components out of stock and displays the details on the invoice without prices. Item-priced – the system sells and display the components with their individual prices and does not show the kit item number at all.Actions are things that can be set to happen when you bring up an item on a sales transaction.
