Create or edit suppliers via CSV import
How to create or edit suppliers via CSV import and further information on CSV import/export can be found here.
Create or edit suppliers manually in the backend
Click on Items → Purchase → Suppliers to see a list of all suppliers in your backend. To add new suppliers click on Create supplier. To edit an existing supplier, click on the pencil icon.
Tab Edit - Here you can enter the master data of the supplier. You can also define the currency in which purchase prices are to be entered for this specific supplier. If you change the currency while items have already been assigned to this supplier, the following message appears:
If you click on Yes, the currency is converted according to the factor defined in Configuration → Basic Settings → Shop Settings → Currencies. If you click No, the currency is converted 1:1. To cancel the process, click on the X at the top right.
To ensure that the conversion rate is always as up-to-date as possible, the Shopware Community Store offers various plugins that check the current exchange rates and update the factor in your settings accordingly. We recommend the plugin CurrentCurrencies from Net Inventors GmbH.
Note: If you store supplier orders in foreign currencies, the value of the goods will always be converted into the standard currency of your shop.
Tab Item assignment - Here you can assign items to the supplier. To do this, drag and drop the desired items from the left-hand area (Available items) into the right-hand area (Selected items) or use the arrows in the middle. In the Selected items area you can then enter the prices and optionally the packaging unit (1 by default) as well as the minimum order quantity. These values are relevant for the suggested item quantity when creating a new supplier order.
Tab Manufacturer assignment - Here you can assign specific manufacturers to the supplier and thus all items of this manufacturer at once.
