Basic Configuration

Decimal Point in Value: This field sets the number of decimal values that you can see in cost price, retail price, VAT, etc. You can set the required limit by selecting any value from the drop down.

Decimal Point in Qty:Decimal points in Qty means you can sell quantity in decimal points on the sales and return screen. You can select the decimal points up to the required limit by selecting any value from drop down. For example, if you select 1, you can sell quantity till one decimal point like 3.1; 3.5, 1.2 etc.

Basic settings

Default Supplier: You can select the default supplier from the drop down list.

Note: When a new Item is defined using ‘Item Definition’ screen, then there is no option to enter the ‘Opening Stock’ of that particular item(without going to the purchase section). In this case, Nimbus generates a GRN in the background and for this purchase, the ‘Default Supplier’ is automatically selected.

This drop down is used to set the price methodology according to your business requirements. The price methodology here will be reflected in sales. The default option is ‘Standard‘. If you select this option, the system will apply same item price for every customer at each store while making sales receipts.

If you select the option ‘Customer Based‘, the system will first check if ‘Customer Based Item Prices’ are defined for an item. if such a price is available, the system will pick it otherwise it will pick the standard price.

Display Supplier Item-Code checkbox: When ‘checked’ then on Item definition screen, there is another text box for entry of second Item code. Usually this is the Code which is used by the Item supplier and is different from our coding scheme.

Unique Vendor Code checkbox: When ‘checked’ then system will not allow you to enter the same supplier’s code against different items on ‘Item Definition’ screen.

Display Item Details checkbox: This check box affects the default setting of ‘Show Item Detail’ check box on different screens. If you mark this check box ‘Checked’ then ‘Show Item Detail’ on different screens will be checked and system will display Item Name and Size/Color columns (after Item code).

Unique Item Name checkbox: When ‘checked’ then system will Not allow to define two Items with the same Item Name.

Hold Item Help checkbox: This check box affects the default setting of ‘Hold Item Help’ check box on different screens. If you mark this check box ‘checked’ then ‘Hold Item Help’ on different screens will be checked. This means that if You open the Item list by pressing F1 and select any item, the list will not close automatically and allow you to make multiple entries.
