I am interested in an easier more sufficient method if one exists. I own a spice and seasoning blend company. I offer the sale of inventory from two different priced options:
- Customer provides their own container, and I charge the price per ounce (net wt)
- Customer purchases spice by the ounce, in either a bag or jar
When I purchase the initial supplies, they are entered into the inventory as a cost per ounce, therefore I can utilize the same inventory item for #1 listed above in the sales order. I do not utilize a production order for this sale.
For the second inventory item (Per ounce jar/bag), I create a production order to properly capture the cost, and reduce my actual per ounce inventory of the spice or blend. The items in the production order are: spice per ounce, label, lid, and jar. Keep in mind, frequently the spices are jarred (production) and sold at the same time.
Do I always have to create a production order (jar/bag) every time I need to place a sale? Is there a way that I can build an inventory item that automatically reduces all of the elements of that item?
In other words, Is there a way that we can create a sales invoice that automatically reduces the inventory of the three items, but only shows the price of the top rolled up item?
I apologize if I am not communicating this properly. If the Manager program has a better way, I would love to hear about it. Otherwise, I will continue to utilize the production order each time a sale is generated.
