Proxy Products

For businesses that have related products that are identified by differing product codes, the "Proxy" feature can be used to associate "child" products to one "parent" product code.

  • The "parent" product code houses the inventory for all items, and each "child" code pulls inventory quantity from the related "parent" product code.
  • This is useful for parts manufacturers/distributors in which items have different product codes associated with identical products.
  • The unit cost will be automatically calculated based on the cost of the related "parent" product code.

Once a product is created as a "Proxy", select ("Related Product to Proxy Product") under Stock Information to select the related product.

Click Save when finished.

  • The unit cost now displays the cost based on the related product.
  • The selected "parent" product code is also shown.
