Occasionally, you sell items in larger quantities than they are bought. This is a reverse supplier ratio.

For example, you may buy cans of paint individually from the supplier, but sell them in bundles of two.

Supplier sells item by One unit from the supplier equals Size/quantity sold in store Order quantity
(sell-able units)
