An Inventory Item in Green Bits is a quantity of a specific Product that you sell in your store. When you receive inventory, you associate Inventory Items to Products. Each Inventory Item represents a specific traceable amount/batch of a given Product.
- For states that use Metrc or Leaf Data Systems: marijuana Inventory Items consist of a SKU (a unique identifier within Green Bits, used primarily for scanning at the Register) and a Package ID (Metrc) or Lot Number (Leaf Data Systems). Green Bits reports sales and adjustments based on the Package ID or Lot Number. You may have multiple SKUs and Products associated with the same Package ID or Lot Number. For instance, if you break down a package of bulk flower into several different-size pre-packs and/or pre-rolls, each would be assigned a unique SKU.
- For all other states: Inventory Items consist of only a SKU, which you enter when you receive inventory. This is also the case (in all states) for non-marijuana merchandise such as glass, rolling papers, and lighters.
- For marijuana Products, each Inventory Item has its own specific test results and other batch-specific information.
- There is no limit to the number of Inventory Items you can assign to a single Product.
- When you sell out of a specific Inventory Item, you may either manually or automatically mark it Not For Sale or Archived, so that only active current Inventory Items appear on the Register.
- Inventory Items cannot be deleted, and all data associated with an Inventory Item is stored in Green Bits indefinitely.
- Inventory Items can be reassigned to another product if needed.
How do I add Inventory Items to Green Bits?
- When you receive inventory and accept manifests, you are assigning Inventory Items to a Product.
- As you make sales or adjustments in your store, Green Bits subtracts quantity from the appropriate Inventory Item and reports sales and adjustments to Metrc or Leaf Data Systems accordingly.
