An item is not yet in the inventory of your MINI by orderbird, but the customers are already asking for it? Then you can sell it ad hoc via free-floating items. Find out how in this article.
By the way: For selling bulk goods, such as sweets, vegetables or fruit, we recommend that you create items with custom prices. You can call these up more quickly in the sales process and also add them to the shopping cart multiple times. Then you can adjust the price as needed.
How to sell free-floating items
- Tap on [€] at the top of the sales screen.
- Now enter the price and optionally add a description (Highly recommended, because it simplifies accounting).
- Choose the tax rate.
- Tap on "Add to basket" at the bottom - done!
Did you know? If you tap on the [+] to the left of the price, you can also enter negative amounts. This is super handy for refunds after the day was closed.
Set default tax rate for free-floating items
Go to Settings > Orders & Taxes > Default free floating item tax and choose between 0%, 7% or 19% as the pre-selected default tax rate for free floating items.
All your free-floating items will be calculated with this default tax rate from now on. You can still manually adjust the tax rate for each sale as described above.
DATEV accounts for free-floating items
Please note: If you need to use 0% VAT with free-floating items, please set up a separate item with custom price instead so that sales are tracked in the right DATEV - accounts. Otherwise, for free-floating items, sales with 7% and 0% VAT will go to the same DATEV account (to go - VAT) and cannot be evaluated separately.
Selling the same item at changing prices (custom price)
By the way, if you sell the same item at a changing price, for example, due to different quantities, you can also create an item with custom price. Then you don't need to add the description each time. This is how it works: Add or edit items
