Click on the product Beer bottle you created in the preceding step. In the left-hand menu keep Basic info, deactivate the Display in selection option and in the item Stock disable the deducting from inventory and check Joint sale. This guarantees that when the product Beer Gambrinus bottle 0.5l is charged so will Beer bottle. Therefore, it will be listed on the receipt, cannot be sold separately (it will not be displayed to the employe) and will not be deducted from the stock.

Marking a product with a returnable packaging

Now, when you are marking the product Beer Gambrinus bottled 0.5l, Beer bottle is added to it automatically. In the event that you charge for more Gambrinus beer, the appropriate number of empty bottles will be also added. Beer bottle will only be indicated on the receipt, then Gambrinus Beer Bottle 0.5l will be deducted from the stock.

If you do not want to follow the billed quantity, you can use a special tag that changes the joint sale rules. During sale, the set quantity of stock for returnable or charged package will then be applied. This is useful when you sell more products in one charged package.




Redemption of returnable packaging

For redemption, create a separate product, e.g. Returnable bottle, and in its properties set the price 1 EUR in the Packaging and unit -1 piece section. This will deduct 1 EUR from the cash register when this product is charged and will also add 1 piece of the backed-up bottle to the stock  (-1 pc x 1 EUR = -1 EUR). This will give you an overview of the number of returned back-up bottles.

If you cannot enter negative values for products, enable the Negative prices and Negative quantity options in the Application settings in the Cash register section on the General tab.




You can also create a product with returnable packaging in Dotypos Cloud.
