Unit of measure

There may be many situations where you need to handle products in different units of measure. For example, if you are buying products from one country and selling to another country, you definitely need to convert the units. Moreover, you have other situations like buying products in large quantities from your supplier and selling them in units to your customers. In the Odoo platform, the product quantity is described based on the unit of measure being described and you also have the provision to set up different units of measure for one product. The unit of measure menu in the platform can be accessed from the configuration tab of the purchase module. This unit of measure can be defined based on the principles and standards of the company.
