Introduce Decimal Quanity

Selling item by weight (Quantity in decimal) :

In the retail business, it is important to have the functionality in quantity calculation from the price. For example; the rate of 1-liter milk is 60 Rs, now the customer wants to buy milk of 100 Rs.

So according to the price quantity, it would be 1.6 liters OR customer may opt to have 1.5 liters of milk.

For such type of operations, we have introduced enhancements to the items, which will allow the POS user to enter a quantity in decimal or calculate quantity from the price.

To do this, the user has to config items as sold by weight options.

Steps to configure item:

Goto Back Office > Menu > Item

2. Enable ask quantity and sold by weight
3. Save the changes

By following the above steps mentioned in the picture, the item is configured to order in decimal quantity.
