  • Pack (Move with) stock items must not contain SCS parent items if using Electronic Point of Sale (EPOS).
  • The Value Proportion can be updated globally, see How To: Update the Value Proportion of Move With and Build Stock Items Globally, this requires Admin level permission.
  • The Value Proportion % can either be based on the child Stock Value (default) or the child Buy Price. Please email Support if you wish to change the calculation to be based on the child Buy Price.
  • Pack child items are exempt from being trigger items in BOGOFs, for example a pack (HEADER1) containing CHILD1 and CHILD2 setup in a BOGOF giving 10% off when adding two x CHILD2. If you then add the pack to an order and CHILD2 as a separate item, the CHILD2 in the pack will not count as one of the 2 items needed to trigger the BOGOF.
  • If you wish to set the sort order for the child items see How To: Define the order that child items are displayed on a Sales Order.
  • Packs can be created dynamically in a sales order, see How To: Create a Dynamic Pack in a Sales Order
  • Nested Move With/Pack/Bundle relationships are NOT supported
  • Average and postal weights of the pack child items are combined to give a total weight against the pack header for shipping and courier purposes.  We do not recommend adding weights to the parent header.
  • The dimensions of the pack children are NOT combined and should be added separately in the pack header stock record
