Purchase Order Overview (Stitch X)

Last Updated: Sep 06, 2019 02:22PM PDT
Whether you purchase from a supplier or manufacture your own goods, use Stitch to plan purchases/production, track awaiting inventory, capture inventory costs, and export records to suppliers, warehouse teams, and accounting.

Note: This article applies only to Stitch X. If you're using an older version, please refer to the corresponding Stitch Classic article.

Plan purchases

Rather than creating Stitch POs as you receive goods, create them as part of your planning process.

Use the Draft status to prepare a PO without affecting awaiting/inbound stock quantities. Use dates, tags, notes, and other fields to communicate details with your team.

For a step-by-step walkthrough, see Create purchase orders.

Track awaiting inventory

When you create purchase orders in Stitch, your team gets insight into what's expected and by when. Use Expected Arrival Date to let your team know when new inventory should arrive.

When you track inbound and received stock via a Stitch purchase order, you create a clear, contextualized record of the stock change.

With Master of Stock, Stitch can automatically push newly received and available units out to your channel(s).

Track inventory cost

Use purchase orders to capture and track inventory cost. Users on premium plans can add more granular cost and discount info to capture true landed cost.

Export PO documents

Once your purchase order is ready, commit the draft to bring it into an Open status with awaiting units. Click Share to export via email, PDF, or CSV.
