How do you handle samples in DEAR?
Many businesses send samples. How do you do it using DEAR?
Here are some ways I have seen it done:
a) Although not optimal, one way to deal with this is to create separate SKUs for samples which have a BOM of the product for which it is a sample and sets the GL accounts as desired, for example setting the COGS account. The sample products can be auto-assembled when sold, or bulk assembled to have on-hand stock and put in a samples area of your warehouse.
b) Write-off sales using an Inventory Write-off, for example, when offering samples at a show.
c) Set the price to zero or whatever amount is appropriate.
d) Have a "Sample" price tier.
e) Set the discount of the line item for the sample to zero or whatever amount is appropriate.
