Now that you have your Commodity Groups created, you will need to create the products that you wish to sell. This guide will take you through the process of creating your first products.
Create a Product
Only a few basic product settings are required to set up a new product. You can find the Products tab under the Inventory section. First, click on +New and create a name for your product. Second, select a commodity group (department/category) for that product. Third, select the desired sector (tax category) for each product.
*Note 1: If the desired selection just doesn’t appear in the drop-down list try entering part of the name to filter the result list. Only the first 15 options will show.
**Note 2: If you have to navigate to a different section you can do that in a new tab to prevent losing your current progress. Simply click on the desired navigation item with the right mouse button and select “open in new tab”.
Tracking a Product
If you wish to track the inventory, order and receive a product a few additional things must be configured. First, make sure Track Inventory is enabled. Next, click the suppliers box and fill in the relevant information. More information regarding suppliers can be found here.
There are several additional configuration options which are worth noting. This guide will only focus on the two important things to consider while creating your first products. More detailed instructions are covered in the KORONA.pos manual.
Product codes can be used as product aliases. At the POS any of the product codes can be used to add a product item to the receipt. You have the option to define a specific item quantity with each product code. This is especially useful if you sell an item as a single item and by case.
If you also use separate pricing for different product codes. For more information, take a look at the price section of this guide.
The price section allows you to set prices for the product by date or product code. If the product does not have any prices configured, the point of sale will handle items as open items. This means that the Point of Sale will require the cashier to enter the item price each time the item is sold.
In order to add a new price, select Add Price. You will have an option to set a price via date, or via product code. Setting a Price via Product Code, will only apply that price to the specifically selected Product Code. Applying a Price by Date would always be the price for all product codes, unless a specific product code is configured to have a price otherwise. If you would like to schedule the price change in advance, select a future date and the point of sale will start applying the new price at the set date.
