Supplier Merge

Shopfront allows you to merge suppliers. This is a handy function if a duplicate supplier has been created. The function will merge all purchase history into the newly merged supplier. You will be able to merge two or more suppliers into one and have the ability to choose the supplier details of the newly merged supplier.

Please Note: There is no way to reverse the process once the suppliers have been merged.
