The Distributors tab allows you to add and manage the various distributors that you purchase from, as well as the items available to order from each distributor. Distributors will each have their own contact information, shipping and billing preferences, and catalog of items available for purchase.
A number of actions can be performed on this tab, including:
- Add distributor: This allows you to quickly create a new distributor entry using basic contact info and default settings.
- Filters: You can filter whether or not inactive distributors are displayed in the distributors table.
- Search: This allows you to search for distributors by name, e-mail, or phone number.
Your distributors are laid out in a table. This table can be sorted by any of its columns. The columns available include:
- Name: The name of the distributor. Select a distributor's name to open the Distributor page, where you can manage the distributor's information, settings, and catalog.
- E-mail: The e-mail address that purchase orders to the distributor will be sent to.
- Phone: The primary phone number for the purchasing contact at the distributor.
- Active: This indicates whether or not the distributor is active and available to purchase from.
