Managing Inventory

How to Create a Supplier

Suppliers are providers that you can receive stock from and send orders to.

To create a new supplier, complete the following:

  1. Select the Menu icon
  2. Select Stock Management
  3. Select Suppliers
  4. Select Add Supplier (Located in the top left of the page)
  5. Enter the supplier name, followed by any other details or settings you wish to keep for that supplier.

An important setting to make note of for quicker balancing when receiving an order is the Default Order Tax. This setting determines how a specific supplier presents the final cost column for each product on a receiving order. This setting can be found by either selecting or scrolling down to Receiving Orders within the Supplier Edit page.


Including Tax No further tax will be added to total, invoice entered amount already includes tax
Excluding Tax Tax will be added to entered costs
Excluding WET 29% WET fee and TAX will be added to entered costs


Supplier Status

The Supplier Status allows a supplier to be set to Active or Inactive. An inactive supplier means that already existing orders and returns can be processed, however, you will not be able to create new Orders and Returns unless the Supplier Status is made Active.
