Linking a Measurement Unit Template to the Product

Daftra enables to create unit templates for the products or services you offer to your business, such as: (kg, meter, carton, hour, session … etc.), and they can easily be linked to the product or service you provide, along with adding a price for this unit to clarify and calculate it in the invoices you issue to your client.
