How to group item with same name to show up on one line of the receipt and to just increase the overall quantity amount?

For example, I'm selling nail polishes and there's many different colors but overall the same item. Right now when I scan each item, it gets its own row on the receipt. Is there a way where when each nail polish is scan (different colors) they all show up as "nail polish" on one row and the only thing that would increase would be the quantity each time an item is added? Each color has its separate UPC and description but the item name is the same.


This is Not what assembly means: "As a workaround, you can build assembly for the nail polish with different colors."

Assembly = your New end product is different than the components that go into it.


You sell Computers and also stock and sell Components, such as motherboards, power supplies, ribbon cables, hard drives. You can Build Computers from the components to have a few Complete Computers on the shelf ready to sell = Assembly.

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.
