SKULabs makes it easier to create purchase orders for items by using supplier-specific data, such as their cost, internal part number, minimum order quantity, and other specifics that are loaded into the purchase order automatically.
Before importing or creating supplier items, first create or import your suppliers.
Once supplier/s have been added in or imported into SKULabs, you can add items to them from your catalog.
To add items to a supplier:
- Select the Suppliers tab on the Purchasing page and choose the supplier to open their details page.
- Select Add item from the Items panel.
- In the window that appears, you can search for and to add the item(s) this supplier provides and select the + button in each item's row to add them to that supplier's catalog.
Tip: If an item you wish to add isn't immediately visible, try changing the sorting of the table's columns and/or searching for the item's name, SKU, or barcode.
Once you've added the item(s) you want to make available for purchase from this supplier, close the Add Item window and select the Edit button on a new item's row.
In the window that appears, you can provide the supplier's part number (or MPN), cost, minimum order quantity, and other optional parameters.
Once you select Save, these new supplier item specifics will be applied to the next purchase order you open with this supplier.
Importing supplier items in bulk
You can add or update supplier items in bulk via a CSV spreadsheet file. You can find the data required by SKULabs and upload your spreadsheet file in the Purchase Orders tab of the Imports/Exports page.
Simply create a CSV with the Required Columns as headers and supply the item information for each supplier item, then upload to the Imports/Exports page.
Set up reorder rule
Next, you'll be setting up a reordering rule to make creating Purchase Orders easy and accurate.
