Import PO

Purchase orders can be bulk-imported using the PO Import template. You can even import an old purchase order that was already received by logging the date of receiving.

If you want to import a PO without using the SellerCloud template, SellerCloud developers can customize a PO import plugin to your requirements. Contact SellerCloud Support for more information.
  1. Navigate Inventory > Purchasing.
  2. Click Import POs.
  3. Click Download Template. See an explanation of its fields below.
  4. Enter each product on a separate row. Each row must have PO information, including PO Number, PO Date, etc.
  5. Complete the template column cells and save the file.
  6. Choose a Company.
  7. Click Choose File > Import Purchase Orders.
  8. If you are importing with a plugin, select the plugin and click Import Purchase Orders.

The template columns correspond to the fields on the Purchase Orders page. All columns must be on the PO to successfully import, but not all columns require a value.

This can be overridden to create a new SellerCloud PO number by checking the Create New PO Numbers box on the Import POs page before importing. Note: In order to see the Create New PO Numbers box, you must first enable Allow to Re-use PO ID in PO Import File in the Client Settings.
