The Product card captures information about an item:
Code: An internal product code for business use and product identification.
UPC Code: UPC Code can be provided by the manufacturer or set by the retailer. It is generally what is used to produce a barcode for scanning. ERPLY can be configured to ‘Generate UPC codes automatically’. Please read the section of Settings: Configurations to do so.
Name ENG: The name of product in English. Other languages can be enabled on premium accounts, but requires consultation with your ERPLY staff.
Product Group: This is a required field, see the section on Product and Service Groups for more information.
Supplier: This is whom the product is generally purchased from. When specified, this product will create or be appended to a purchase order for this supplier when in an Automatic Purchase Order operation.
Unit: The unit by which the item is sold. Most items are sold by the piece, but they may also be sold by the yard, pound, feet, and more. If you need to add or adjust units, the setting can be found in Settings → Inventory settings / Units. If you cannot see this option, contact your administrator. Administrators, if a user group needs to be able to edit or add product Units, you must enable this in the ‘Settings’ portion of their User Group Settings:
Net Sales Price: The price the item will ring up with at the register. The price you would like to sell the item for, not including any applicable taxes.
Sales Price + Tax: If you’ve set a tax rate on this Item, this will be autogenerated. You can also specify this, and have the price generated if there is a tax rate set. If there is no tax rate set, this will be the same as the Net Sales Price.
Tax Rate: The applied tax rate on this item. If the register has a tax rate set, it will override this setting. This setting will be pulled into purchase orders and invoices if there is no register set on the invoice. For more help with tax settings in ERPLY, please see the ‘Creating & Applying Tax Rates’ section.
Tax Free in all Locations: Checking this off means this item should always be tax free, even when taxes are set on a register.
