The following schema illustrates relations between alternative products:


  • conversion—factor to convert a value from sales to the base unit. If it is “null” then the information is taken from the global conversions (MeasurementUnitConverter.php file).
  • precision—ratio between a sales unit and a base unit. For example, a base unit is an “item”, and a user selects “kg” as a sales unit.
  • is_displayed—If true, then the value is shown on the Storefront.
  • is_default—If true, then the unit is shown as the default unit on the Storefront.
