You can use transfers to record, track, and receive incoming purchase orders and inventory from suppliers. Transfers can help you to manage your purchase orders and inventory in several ways:
- You can record incoming inventory after you’ve submitted and confirmed your purchase order (PO) with your supplier.
- You can indicate whether you’ve received full or partial inventory, which allows you to process inventory at your own pace.
- Your product inventory is updated automatically after you receive the items from your supplier.
- You can see the number of incoming items and their expected arrival date right in the product’s details.
