Sale By Packaging

Alpha License: AGPL-3 OCA/sale-workflow Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

This module provides different configuration option to manage packagings on sale orders.

The creation/update of sale order line will be blocked (by constraints) if the data on the sale.order.line does not fit with the configuration of the product's packagings.

It's also possible to force the quantity to sell during creation/modification of the sale order line if the "Force sale quantity" is ticked on the packaging.

For example, if your packaging is set to sell by 5 units and the employee fill the quantity with 3, the quantity will be automatically replaced by 5 (it always rounds up).


This is an alpha version, the data model and design can change at any time without warning. Only for development or testing purpose, do not use in production. More details on development status

Table of contents


Following options are available to define which packaging type can be sold and which product can only be sold by packaging.

  • Can be sold: On product packaging type model, this checkbox defines if product packagings from this particular type are available to be selected on sale order line.
  • Sell only by packaging: On product template model, this checkbox restricts sales of these products if no packaging is selected on the sale order line. If no packaging is selected, it will either be auto-assigned if the quantity on the sale order line matches a packaging quantity or an error will be raised.
  • Force sale quantity (on the packaging): force rounds up the quantity during creation/modification of the sale order line with the factor set on the packaging.

Known issues / Roadmap

  • Odoo allows to define product.packaging records with a qty = 0. This does not make much sense with the can_be_sold checkbox, and we probably need to add a constraint here.
