Vendors and suppliers

Stocky automatically imports product vendors from your Shopify admin. You can also create more detailed vendor profiles called suppliers. Creating suppliers within Stocky gives you greater control over your inventory, such as letting products have multiple suppliers, and letting you order inventory by number of packs instead of by number of individual units.

Differences between vendors and suppliers

Vendors are automatically brought into Stocky from the Vendor field on your products in the Shopify admin. Suppliers are manually created within Stocky and exist only in the app.
