Erleichtert den B2B-Handel
This module is perfect for companies that drop ship their orders directly from their supplier / manufacturer for on demand production or from a 3rd party inventory warehouses. The module will add two new containers in the Orders section. They are "Purchase Order" and "Ship Authorization" containers.
When an order is received, the admin will access the order processing page as normal. The "Purchase Order" container is used to notify your manufacturer of a new order that they need to cue production for. With the click of a button, a purchase order is created with options to include notes/instructions for the manufacturer, lead time for production / shipping and whether to restore the product inventory in PS (useful for when Made to Order sales where you may have a limited quantify on-hand but choose to cue production for larger orders). Once created, the admin can either save a PDF version of the Purchase Order for e-mailing through the preferred e-mailing method or send it via the back office with one click straight to the manufacturers / warehouse E-mail address. The Purchase Order will show the wholesale price of the product (which should be the manufacturer's price). The ship authorization document works the same way as Purchase Orders but is useful for when you have both production orders and inventory shipments (useful for when you keep low stock of a product but get a large order and need to cue production from your manufacturer to fulfill).
We have also added the ability to attach various documents along with the Purchase Order / Ship Authorization Documents. If you want your supplier to use your Packing Slip instead of their own, one is generated and attached with the Purchase Order. Also available is the option to attach any documents associated with a product such as Warranty Cards, Installation Instructions, Spec Sheets, etc... All of these files can be sent along with the PO and SA so that the supplier can easily print and place inside your shipping boxes.
As a bonus to this module, there is an added e-mail button for the standard "Sales Invoice" document container that appears at the top right of the orders page. The new button allows for easy and automatic e-mailing of the sales invoice as a pdf document to the customer.
Note that in order to properly use the Purchase Order and Sales Invoice buttons, your products must have a manufacturer specified in the product details page. Also, that manufacturer must have the appropriate contact information specified in the Products->Manufacturers page. You must specify an e-mail address as well as a shipping address in order for the module to work.
