A consumable allows you to add an additional cost to a session. For example, you may have a full day session but you charge extra for a hot lunch. In this scenario the hot lunch would be added as a consumable.

What is the difference between the consumable line item on invoices option?
Combine the consumable cost into the session fee: This means if your session cost is 60 pounds & you have a consumable of £5. The £5 would be combined into the session cost resulting in the session cost showing as £65.
Show consumable line items separately to session fee: This means your consumable will be displayed on a separate line with its specific cost.
