How to create or import suppliers

Setting up the vendors you purchase goods from

Updated over a week ago

SKULabs supports a robust list of suppliers, each with their own catalog of goods for purchase. This system ensures that a single SKU can be purchased from any of multiple available suppliers at a given time, and each supplier will have their own cost, part number, and other info for the item in question.

Creating a supplier

To add a supplier to SKULabs, select the Suppliers tab on the Purchasing page and select Add supplier. In the window that appears, you'll be prompted to fill out some basic contact and shipment information for the supplier, as well as some optional defaults and automations that will come into play when creating purchase orders.

Note: You can add additional email addresses separated by commas to CC supplier contacts.

Note: to assist with dropshipping, SKULabs can link a chosen warehouse to a supplier's inventory feed. Once you've selected a default warehouse and location, you can upload fresh inventory counts to that location via a Supplier inventory import, which is available among other Purchase Orders imports/exports.

Import supplier data in bulk

As is the case with SKULabs catalog items, kits, and orders, suppliers can be added or updated in bulk via a CSV spreadsheet file import. You can find the data required by SKULabs and upload your spreadsheet file in the Import/export tab for purchase orders.

Add supplier items

After adding your suppliers, you'll next want to move on giving your suppliers items to use when creating purchase orders.
