Purchasing Overview

Purchasing in Primaseller allows you to add stock to your facilities. You can add supplier and supplier SKUs to generate purchase orders and receive inventory.


  • Supplier: The person or organization that provides your products. You raise a PO against your suppliers which they fulfill and you receive items.
  • Supplier Catalog: The supplier catalog contains all the SKUs that the supplier will supply to you. It is the list of SKUs that you will be purchasing from a specific supplier.
  • Supplier SKU codes: These are the SKU codes used by your supplier to identify his products. You will need to map them to your SKU codes so that when you raise a PO your supplier will identify which products to deliver.
  • Purchase Order: A Purchase order is an official document issued to a supplier to indicate the products and quantities required by you.
  • Purchase Receipt: A purchase receipt is a confirmation of receipt of products from a particular Purchase order. You can receive a part or all of the items in the Purchase order.
  • Purchase Payments: Payments can be created against receipts using any payment method. The payment method will decide the due date.
