Import Purchases

Import Purchases

You can import purchase orders in bulk into your account. All imported purchase orders will be added to your account in a Parked status, allowing you to confirm the transactions before approving them.

Before You Begin

Read the following topics to understand the correct process details and avoid common errors:

Points to Note:

  • Purchase orders must be unique for an existing product. DO NOT enter an existing order number.
  • We recommend importing open orders. If you import completed orders, all orders are imported with a Parked status and you must manually complete the orders. This will affect your Stock On Hand values.
  • The unit price from the template is the unit price on the purchase order imported; this will override the default unit price in the system settings. If you want to use the default unit price from the system, then leave the unit price field blank.
  • Enter the correct supplier code as recorded in Unleashed.
  • You must enter the order numbers with any required prefixes or formatting. Unleashed does not add any prefixes or formatting.
  • Uploaded purchase orders can have as many lines as required, however, you must enter a line number for each line.
  • Multiple purchase orders can be uploaded on a single template.
