Changing item types

For optimal functioning of your account, Lightspeed Retail is designed to allow certain item type transitions. Depending on your item's current type, different rules apply and are described in greater detail below.

Singles

  • A Single cannot be converted to a Non-Inventory item if you currently have a quantity on hand or have ever had stock in the past.

Boxes

  • A Box cannot be converted to any other item type if it has Singles associated to it.
  • A Box cannot be converted to a Non-Inventory item if you currently have a quantity on hand or have ever had stock in the past.

Assemblies

  • An Assembly cannot be converted to any other item type if it has Assembly parts associated to it.
  • An Assembly cannot be converted to a Non-Inventory item if you currently have a quantity on hand or have ever had stock in the past.

Non-Inventory items

  • A Non-Inventory item cannot be converted to a Single, Box, or Assembly if it has a sales history.
