What does receiving mean?
When you issue a purchase order to a vendor, they will package and ship those items to you. Receiving is taking count of the items you got, and adding them to your Listing Mirror quantity!
How do you receive a PO?
To receive a PO, you'll need to have issued one first! You can check out how to do that in our Purchase Orders article!
Once the PO has been issued, and the shipment is in your hands, you'll want to receive it.
First, head over to the Purchase Orders page.
You'll see a list of all of your incomplete purchase orders. Click on the number of the purchase order you're receiving.
Once you're in the purchase order, you'll head to the line items, and simply enter the quantity that you've received for each SKU in the received box.
Then save the purchase order! You can return to the purchase order page, or go about your day. This purchase order will be available to edit as you receive more items from shipment, or if you've received everything on the purchase order, you can simply complete it.
Completing a PO
You can complete a PO even if you haven't 'received' everything on the PO, for example if a vendor only had 8 of a SKU but you ordered 10, just receive 8 or wait for the additional 2 before you complete the PO.
In the purchase order, in the status box, you'll have a blue button that you can click to complete the PO.
Please note: Once you complete a PO it's closed for good. This means it won't show up on your PO list, and cannot be reopened. This is the last step of the Purchase Order workflow, and you should not complete a PO until you're sure you're done with it.
And you're all set! If you're experiencing any issues with POs, Vendors, or Web Receiving, please reach out to our support team at support.listingmirror.com!
