How do I make products from a combination of inventory items in Quickbooks online?

For example, I buy jars, lids, and bulk product, then portion it out for sale.  The large quantities and bulk items need to be tracked as an asset, but I also need to pull from that stock and bulk (25kg bags) of inventory to make individual, saleable units of product.  From that, I'd like to make case quantities of those individual jars as well, which means also tracking the empty boxes in the base stock too.

You want to add the individual items together as a bundle.

In QBO you do it the same way as adding a new item, except you select Bundle instead of Inventory Item.

Then QBO will have a field where you can add the individual inventory parts to the bundle.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
