In the retail business type, sometimes you want to make a package of products that contains another product. On DealPOS, you can make those kinds of products by using Composite Product Type. Composite products are usually used to sell sets of various products into one set of products.
Composite products are very suitable if you want to sell a bundled product with customizable components. When using the Composite product type, you will be enabled to combine several products into a new product. Some scenarios for you to make these combined products are:
Create a Package Bundle containing several products.
Selling products in a different quantity. (i.e. 1 Pack = 6 Bottles)
As a Bill of Materials (list of raw materials for an end-product)
To create a new Composite Product, you can follow these steps below.

There is 1 scenario that we can't handle, the scenario will be like this:
If there is space on your SKU Product
Example: SweaterZara Z-01 , SweaterZara Z-02
And when we write the formula component, it will be: quantity productcode + quantity productcode
Example: 1 SweaterZara Z-01 + 3 SweaterZara Z-02
It will be defined as an error, SKU doesn't match, because it will just read the "SweaterZara" only.
