Once you have sent your Purchase Order (PO) to a supplier, the inventory (and  PO) that you've ordered will be in the ‘On Order’ status. When your stock arrives, you can check it against the original purchase order, receipt it and make it Available for sale.

The Stock Receipt process caters for:

  • Simple or more advanced options for receiving stock
  • Receiving local (domestic) purchase orders which are ordered and received in the same currency
  • Receiving overseas / foreign purchase orders received with alternate currencies
  • Saving your Progress (not available for Quick Receive)
