Jessica: I need to buy 100kg of squid this weekend, and now I need some way to place my order and negotiate the price with several vendors. How can I do it? 


Before buying something from your vendor, you need to issue a purchase order to list all details and acceptable price to negotiate with your vendor.

This is also a good practice for both sides to keep good track of unfulfilled orders and make business management organized.

  3. Check "Currency". Your booking currency would be set as its default value, but you can change whatever you need. 
  4. Select a vendor. You can click "Add" to create a new vendor or "Edit" to update vendor information.
