In line with QuickBooks Commerce's manufacturing functionality, you will be given the option of switching an existing Purchased Variant to a Manufactured Variant (or vice versa).
This can only be done if the existing Purchased Variant has not been part of any Purchase Orders regardless if it is Draft, Active, Voided, or Received.
How to switch Purchased Variants to Manufactured Variants?
Step 1: On the Inventory tab, click on Products and then 'Bulk Manage' on the top right-hand corner.
Step 2: Select 'Update Existing Products' from the dropdown options.
Step 3: You will be directed to a Product Update page. Select “No, I need to download a list of my products.”
Step 4: On the Product Attributes section, tick the 'Manufactured' and 'Purchasable' checkboxes. Then proceed to build and download the product sheet.
Step 5: In the downloaded CSV, update the Manufactured column from false to true and the Purchasable column from true to false.
Step 6: Lastly, upload the updated CSV by clicking on 'Upload FIlled CSV.'
The same steps apply if you want to switch the order (i.e., Manufactured Variants to Purchased Variants).
Easy, right? 😉
