Configure Product UnitsΒΆ

In the system configuration, you are in control of the product unit options that apply system-wide. You may:

  • Select the rounding algorithm for product units.
  • Enable/disable the single unit mode for all products and toggle visibility of the unit code.
  • Select the primary unit and its precision.

To update the product unit settings:

  1. Navigate to the system configuration (click System > Configuration in the main menu).

  2. Select Commerce > Product > Product Unit in the menu to the left.

    The following page opens.

    The following options are available:

    • Unit Rounding Type – an algorithm that is used to round the volume specified for this unit (ceil, floor, half down, or half up).
    • Single Unit – when enabled, limits the product unit to just one default value and restricts adding new product units.
    • Show Unit Code (available only when the Single unit is on) – when enabled, the unit appears next to the requested quantity; when disabled, the unit name is hidden and only quantity is displayed.
    • Default Primary Unit – the product unit that is shown by default in the website.
    • Default Primary Unit Precision – number of digits after the floating point that limits the Primary unit precision (e.g. 1 for 0.x, 2 for 0.xx, 3 for and so on).
  3. To customize any of these options:

    1. Clear the Use Default box next to the option.
    2. Type in the updated quantity.
  4. Click Save.
