Anjali AjithMarch 13, 2020

Odoo provide the business professionals to purchase the goods and sell the products in different unit of measures. In fact this different measuring scales help in saving time and easy remembrance of the purchase orders. Of course 59km will be easier to remember than 59000 meters. UoM is the actual Unit of Measurement of Product you are dealing with. And UoS is the Unit of Product in which you are selling the product. Multi UoM is the usage of the different units in a product during buying and selling. In this blog we discuss the Multi UoM for a single Product in Odoo 12.

Here we are going to create two units for a product. That is, for purchasing and selling. The purchase unit will be larger than selling unit.

In order to make changes in UoM, first enable the UoM :

Inventory-->Configuration -->Settings -->Units of Measure.

  • Bag

Packet is for the retailing and Bag is for purchasing unit.
