How to use the Single Product Setup
This is a basic walkthrough on how to setup a unit price for one of your products. Before reading this step by step tutorial, we recommend that you firstly familiarise yourself with the Price per Unit app Settings by reading the following article https://help.appattic.com/article/49-default-settings
Step 1. Select The Product
When you press "Select Product" you'll be shown a list of all the products listed in your store. You can scroll through or search using the input at the top of the window.
Once you have found the product you require, click 'Add' and you'll be redirected to the next step.
Step 2. Choose Your Number of Units
The selected product will display all variants and you can configure the price per unit for each one individually. The app will automatically apply the default Settings Unit of Measurement, store currency and Price per Unit Format. To edit these at any point, for any product or variant, simply untick the Use default settings button.
Please note: the app comes with a set of prepopulated default settings- 'unit' is used for Unit of Measurement, $ for currency and [currency][price_per_unit] per [unit of measurement] is the Price Per Unit Format.
If you are using the app for the first time, please untick the 'Use default settings' box as you should firstly check these and make sure they are suitable for your store - more information on this can be found here https://help.appattic.com/article/49-default-settings
Number of Units:
If you are selling amazingly flavored organic pack of coffee beans that weighs 1.7lb and you want the price per unit to be displayed per lb, then the number of units is 1.7. If you want the price to be displayed per kg, then the number of units is 0.77 (1.7lb=0.77kg). The app will automatically calculate the correct price per unit based on the total cost of the product.
Unit of Measurement:
This is is is whichever unit your product is being sold in or you want the price to be displayed in. It does not have to a standard unit of measurement such as a sq.meter or an oz. For example, in the image above, if you are selling a box of great quality retractable pens than you can display the price per pen and use 'pen' as your unit of measurement. .
Step 3. Choose Your Price per Unit Format (Optional)
You only need to do select this if you are not using the Default Settings.
When it comes to how the Price per Unit will be displayed in your store, you can select between the two recommended formats or alternatively, you can customize your own.
The two standard recommended formats are:
The currency displayed will automatically be taken from the store or the default settings, the [price_per_unit] will be calculated based on the product's price and the [unit_of_measurement] will be the value you have entered for that particular product.
For the example we used above, In USD store, the app will display the price per unit as '$0.50 per pen' using the first option and '$0.50/pen' using the second option. Similarly, in an GBP store, the app will display the price per unit as '£0.50 per pen' using the first format option or '£0.50/pen' using the second format option.
Once finished click Update and you're all ready to go. You'll then be redirected to the homepage where you can now see your product and the settings you applied.
You can filter products using the search bar, change the Status off the price of per unit display (enable or disable it), and finally, edit or simply delete the price per unit settings for any individual product.
Finally, clicking on a product will show you how the price per unit is displayed in store:
