Want to assign one staff to each product for ease of commission calculation

An additional price can be set for each product listed in the combo, for items that warrants a premium. Eg: Mains set: $10 . Beef Steak has an additional price of +$2.00
Combos are essentially borrowing existing products from other categories.
As such, product name, price, cost, points, modifiers, printer selection, order chit, KDS etc for products in combos will still follow what is being set on a product level
Deduction of stock in Inventory Management for combos is still via the current existing product.
