Fees can be added as a negative value to Kits

  1. Once the Kit contents is complete - review the pricing / quantity /  indicate if the line items are fixed (if they are fixed, the price cannot be changed etc)

Result - When this Kit is added to a Customer Order, all items listed in the Kit Content will automatically populate onto the Customer Order  


Once the kit has been added to a Customer Order, the user will have the option of Breaking up the kit if required 

Simply click on and it will no longer be a kit but individual line items

How to hide the Kit line items on Customer facing documents 

There are two options on how a kits can show on Customer facing documents in Blackpurl 

Option 1 - show all kit line items (this is the default) 

The kit will show on all documentation in a Customer Order as you have created it 

The kit description and then a listing of all line items with prices - see example below of a Invoice Preview:

Option 2 - Hide all kit line items

The Dealership can elect to have the kit show up on Customer facing documents as just the description line with total

The kit will show all items on the Customer Order sections 

But when you print / email customer facing documents, the kit will only show up as the description line with total

This is an example of the above kit and how it will show up on a Invoice Preview as the description line only with total

If enable this option - navigate to System Settings > Settings and Controls - Shop settings and then move the toggle for the setting Hide kit details on documents 

These are the Customer facing documents that will now only show the Kit description and total:

  • Customer Approvals

  • Deal documents

  • Deposit Receipt

  • Invoice Preview

  • Checkout Invoice


This change will  NOT apply to the following documents:

  • Third party claim documents

  • Parts Picklist

  • Third-party and Internal invoices

  • Service Worksheet

  • Service Job Review
