How to create a supplier

OnePosting Customer Care -

Suppliers are added to OnePosting after they have been setup and a supplier reference has been assigned to them in your back office system

To create a supplier, first click 'Suppliers' from the top left, then from the 'Supplier' menu on the blue menu bar select 'Create Supplier'.

There are three key pieces of information when adding a new supplier:

  1. Supplier Reference must match the back office system
  2. Supplier contact email address
  3. PO matching required?

Add Supplier key fields

Now click 'Create Supplier'. You can also use 'Mark Active/Inactive' with individual suppliers. A supplier is automatically set as active once they are created. You can then switch them between active and inactive.


Assign to Cost Centres

Suppliers must be assigned to cost centres POs to be raised against the supplier from that cost centre. Its good practice to add the supplier to their relevant cost centres after adding them. 

When viewing the supplier select the Cost Centres link from the left hand menus. Tick the Cost centres to assign the supplier to and click Assign.
