You can use transfers to record, keep track of, and receive incoming purchase orders and inventory from suppliers. Transfers can help you to manage your purchase orders and inventory in several ways:

  • They allow you to record incoming inventory after you’ve submitted and confirmed your purchase order (PO) with your supplier.
  • They let you indicate whether you’ve received full or partial inventory, which allows you to process inventory at your own pace.
  • They automatically update your current product inventory after you’ve received the items from your supplier.
  • They allow you to see the number of incoming items and their expected arrival date right in the product’s details.
