Managing Suppliers

Managing suppliers is a crucial aspect of running a successful online business. In this guide, we'll explore the steps to efficiently manage your suppliers through your website's admin area.

Accessing the Admin Area Start by logging into your website's admin area. From here, you can access all the tools you need to manage your suppliers effectively.

Navigating to Supplier Management Once logged in, head to the "Products/Catalogue" and "Suppliers" tabs.

Key Actions for Supplier Management Here are the primary actions you can perform with your suppliers:

  1. Adding a New Supplier: To expand your supplier network, click the "Add New Supplier" button.
  2. Editing or Deleting a Supplier: You can make updates to an existing supplier's information or remove a supplier (if it's not your default supplier).
  3. Setting Supplier Status: For non-default suppliers, you have the option to enable or disable their status.


Configuring Supplier Data When adding or editing a supplier, you'll work with various data sections to ensure accurate and comprehensive supplier information.

  • General Section: Set the supplier's name, specify the delivery time in days (from / to), define the default tax rate (in %), and choose to enable or disable the "price with tax" option.
  • Additional Info Section: Enter additional details like AWRS, Sage Code, payment delay in days, supply delay in days, condition, and add a description if needed.
  • Company Details Section: Specify the supplier's company information, including name, VAT ID, contact name, phone number, and address.
  • Authentication Data Section: Access the supplier's email and password for secure communication.
  • Currencies Section: Discover the currencies associated with the supplier, making it easier to handle international transactions.
  • Quantity Discount and Supplier Cost Sections: Configure quantity discounts for your suppliers in percentage, assign a default price formula based on currency, and set values for discounts from the supplier, surcharges, and margins.


Creating Additional Price Formulas In addition to the default price formula, you have the flexibility to create additional ones. These formulas can be tailored with conditions such as "cost from" to "cost to" or "cost not below than," offering more precise pricing strategies.


With these steps, you can efficiently manage your suppliers, ensuring accurate information and smooth transactions. Effective supplier management is essential for providing a seamless experience to your customers and maintaining a healthy supply chain.
