Use of Supplier Product Code

Supplier Product Codes will be useful while generating a Purchase Order for specific Suppliers. This will help the Suppliers to identify the product easily. Let us go through below steps to understand better.

Step 1: From the main menu options go to Purchases and select Purchase Orders.

Step 2: Click New to create a new Purchase Order.

Step 3: Select the Supplier for whom you have added Product Code earlier. And select the Warehouse from where you are raising the Purchase Order.

Step 4: Enter or Scan the item SKU. You can also select the item by its name by clicking on drop down list, typing the name or by clicking on 3 dotted button.

Step 5: Now you will notice, even though item SKU was scanned it is showing Supplier Product Code in SKU field. 

Step 6: Do the required changes and Save the Purchase Order.

Note: When you send this Purchase Order to Supplier it will be easy for them to identify the product as it is showing their Product Code.

Also when Purchase Order is converted to Purchase it will show Item SKU in Purchase.
