Units management

Units management

You can create your own units in DJ-Catalog2. 
This is the powerful feature that allows you to sell computer parts in units, apples in Kilograms, liquids in Liters, or land in square meters. You can even create your custom units.
Each unit can be assigned to any product in any category. 

Units management

You can access the Unit management by opening the DJ-Catalog2 component and clicking on the Units link in the left sidebar.
Once there, you can see the list of available units. By default, we have added the most popular units:

Setting the unit in the product.

When you are creating or editing the product, you can choose the Unit for it.

Go to DJ-Catalog2 Products and edit or create a new product. Now, open the "commerce" tab to see the options.
Choose the correct Unit for your product and click save. From now on, the product is available with the chosen Unit.
