Odoo 16 Community Book

Vendor Management

A business organization deals with different types of purchases in bulk or retail. Depending on the product purchased, you might have to store and manage the details of multiple vendors. Odoo 16 allows you to configure all the vendors related to a particular product, making it easier for customers to buy from the vendor of their choice. With the advent of Odoo’s flexible and advanced user interface, monitoring the vendor directory and assembling the vendor attributes has become more efficient. Besides, you can link the vendor data with the associated product to easily track new purchase orders.

To manage the vendor details, click on the Vendors menu from the dropdown list of the Orders tab. You will get the detailed Kanban view of all the vendors added to the module.

Clicking on the Create button will lead you to a new platform where you can configure the details of the vendor. The process of vendor configuration is the same as that of the customer configuration we discussed in the Sales module. So, you can follow the same steps here. Complete the Contact & Addresses, Sales & Purchases, Invoicing, Internal Notes, Partner Assignment, and Membership tabs. After configuring Vendors, you can manage the Vendor Price List in the Odoo Purchase module.
