- Standard: This is the most common type of inventory and is simply any bulk item that you want to keep an inventory count of.
- Serialized: These are items that have a unique tracking number on each individual unit that you sell. A good example would be a computer hard drive where each hard drive that you sell has a different serial number on it from the manufacturer.
- Assemblies: An assembly is an item that is manufacturered from other items in a consistant configuration. An example would be a gift basket that is made from a basket, a coffee cup, a bag off coffee, and a stuffed animal. Each time one of the gift baskets are built, the inventory for the gift basket is increased and the inventory counts for the items that make up the gift basket are decreased.
- Containers: A container is a wrapper around other inventory items that allows you to group and sell all of the items as a single unit. An example of this would be a computer system which has multiple items 'inside' of it and is sold and priced as a single unit.
Containers also have the unique ability to be customized for each individual instance of the container on a transaction.
