Kits are groups of Products that you sell together and do not require assembling before despatch (such as food hampers or self-assembly furniture kits). Use the Kits page to manage your Kit Catalogue. 

Navigate to Product Catalogue > Kits.
Use the Quick and Advanced Search to help you find the Kit you’re looking for.
By default, Kits are ordered by Item Code (numerically, then A-Z). To sort by something else, click on the column heading. Click again to reverse the sort order.

The Available, Allocated, On Order, Free Stock, and Back Order columns help you to keep track of your Inventory at a glance. Refer to Kit field explanations for more information on each field.

A Kit will show as Available when all of the component products are In Stock at a single location.

Click Add New to add a new Kit to your Kit Catalogue. 


The Kits page is customisable so you can see the information that is most important to you and your workflow.
