Purchase Orders – Receive PO


Purchase Orders can be received within Sellercloud or via the standalone Receivebridge app. This allows you to verify and receive items and quantities against Receiving Sessions and updates the product’s inventory once the quantity received is specified. Learn how to use Receivebridge for POs and RMAs. Payments can be applied to Purchase Orders before or after the PO is received. To learn more about managing PO Payments, refer to the PO Payments article.

Receive a PO

  1. Access Purchasing > Manage POs.
  2. Open the Purchase Order for the items you want to receive.
  3. In the upper right, click Actions, and select the Receive Shipment option.Note, that to receive a whole PO, the Receive Whole PO option is used. This will skip the verification step on product quantities, and the PO status will be set to Received.
  4. On the Session Details panel, provide invoice details on the current Receive Session.
  5. In the Qty to Rec. text box, indicate the number of received items for each PO line.
  6. Select the Warehouse the received items are delivered to. Note: Receiving items to a bin-enabled warehouse should be done via the Skustack application.
  7. At the top, click the Receive Items button.
  8. If the received products require serial numbers, you should add the serials associated with the units received. To do that, select Serial Numbers from the respective product’s Toolbox. For more information on serials, refer to Managing Serial Numbers.
