Fulfilling from supplier via your warehouse (just-in-time)

If you are out of stock of an item, you may wish to place a purchase order with a supplier just for the items which have been sold, rather than waiting for the next delivery from that supplier.

These purchase orders can be placed by:

  • Cloning the sales to purchase orders
  • Using the batch purchase order functionality on the sales list

In both cases, at least one purchase order is created containing the items to be fulfilled.

The sales order will not be allocated or fulfilled until the inventory is received in to stock.

For more information on back-to-back purchase orders, including how to create them, read this help article.

If you're sending items direct to customer rather than routing the items into your warehouse, then use a drop ship purchase order. Read about drop shipping here.
