Reference units enable your customers to easily compare the price of products with different quantities. You can specify a reference unit for each product.
In the following example, we will set the reference price for a bottle of wine. The bottle contains 700 ml. To help customers make an easy price comparison, the converted price for a litre of the wine is shown on the product page as a reference.
The result then looks like this:
How to set the reference unit for a product
