The VPO, also known as the Vendor Purchase Order, is a simple process that allows you to order products from a vendor to stock up on. All you need to do is select a vendor, choose the products you want to purchase, and specify the quantities and the warehouse where you want the products to be delivered. The prices will be automatically calculated based on the prices you previously set up in the product setup, and taxes and shipping fees will be added accordingly.
Once you create a VPO, you can choose to save it or save and process it. If you save it, you can process it later by going to the view all VPOs screen. This will send the order to inbound so that you can receive the vendor shipment when it arrives at your warehouse. Additionally, you can use consolidated receiving to aggregate vendor orders and receive them in groups at your convenience.
