How to determine Price Per Unit

Price Per Unit (PPU) refers to the price of an unit of the product. The definition of unit varies by product. For example, if you are selling 2 Kilograms of coffee for AED 20, a PPU of AED 10/Kilogram will be displayed on the product detail page, as the measurement "unit" of the product is 1 Kg of coffee. PPU is generated from the following product information that you provide to us: the product price, the product measurement in unit_count (the weight, volume or count of units) and product unit of measure in unit_count_type (ounce, fluid ounce, count, pound, or gram).

Determining the correct unit of measure for "unit_count_type"

Item Packaging Unit of Measure Example
If the product has individually-packaged units (e.g. nutrition bars, wipes, diapers), the unit of measure should always be the total count of individually packaged units. count
If the product does not have individually-packaged units and is a solid, the unit of measure should always be the weight (kilogram or gram). Review your product’s image or description to determine which of the three options is appropriate for the product. Kilogram, gram
If the product does not have individually-packaged units and is a liquid, the unit of measure should always be "millilitre." millilitre
Note: If the item is a multi-pack (e.g., Pack of 2, Pack of 4), the number of packs should be multiplied by the unit measurement of one pack to calculate the total product measurement the customer would receive. For example, the correct item size for Tide Laundry Detergent, 1000 Millilitres (Pack of 2) is 2000 Millilitres (1000 Millilitres x 2 units).
