Purchase Order Type


SalesPad Cloud allows you to create two different Purchase Order Types: standard purchase orders and dropship purchase orders. Multiple instances of both Purchase Order Types can be created. 

Standard purchase orders, when received, increase the inventory quantity and value for the location specified on the purchase order. Dropship purchase orders will not affect the inventory quantity or value in the specified location because the inventory will be shipped directly to the customer. 

To get started, select Purchase Order Type from the Settings menu.
