Automatic Vendor Pricelist Creation

When you confirm a Purchase Order from a new vendor, their pricing will be added to the Vendor Pricelists automatically.

To add a new Pricelist, click CREATEThis opens the New Vendor Pricelists form with the following fields:

Vendor

  • Vendor: Select the vendor for this product.

  • Vendor Product Name: The vendor's product name will be used when printing a Request for Quotation (RFQ). Leave this field empty to use an internal product name. This is important if the vendor refers to the product as something other than how it is named in Odoo.

  • Vendor Product Code: The vendor's product code will be used when printing a Request for Quotation (RFQ). Leave this field empty to use an internal product code. Again, this is important if the vendor uses a different code for the product than you do, as the buyer.

  • Delivery Lead Time: Enter the number of days between the confirmation of the purchase order and product delivery.

Pricelist

  • Product: Select the product that this pricelist applies to.

  • Product Variant: If this price applies to all variants of a product, leave this field empty. In our example, this price only applies to the variant "Blue".

  • Quantity: Enter the quantity of items that must be purchased to benefit from this price.

  • Unit Price: Enter the purchase price for the product.

  • Validity: If applicable, enter the date range for which this price is valid. Otherwise, leave it empty.

Product Variant? Add the Product First

If the pricelist you're creating will apply to a product variant, select your Product first. Doing this will populate the Product Variant field with all configured variants, which you can then select.
