This Odoo tool aims to force suppliers to administrate their products in the Odoo portal. The app let vendor contacts to create, update, and import products they sell, related prices and stock levels by their locations. Purchase managers might do the same and use that information for administrating procurement.

Vendor products catalog

The tool introduces a new stand-alone classifier of vendor products which is manageable either internally by purchase managers or in the Odoo portal by supplier representatives. As installed the app automatically creates vendor products based on existing Odoo products' supplier prices

Odoo sales based on supplies

Any vendor product might be linked to any Odoo product. In such a way, a purchase manager goal becomes to match 'their' products with 'ours'. Each of our product variants might have a few linked vendor products

Supplier prices management

Portal users manage their company prices in the Odoo portal, while purchase managers might update them in the the Odoo backend interface. Those prices are considered as standard Odoo 'supplier info' which correspondingly are used in purchase orders

Vendor stocks control

Both vendor representatives and purchase users register and update inventory levels by locations. Vendor products' stocks data is available both in the Odoo portal and from product variant, product template, and supplier backend form views

Vendor data import

The tool let import vendor products, prices, and stock levels as Excel tables of predefined formats. In such a way, suppliers may quickly prepare commercial offers in the Odoo portal, while purchase managers - import those in the Odoo backend

Secured access and shared use

Any portal user may create, update, and archive products related to their company. Any purchase manager may create, update, and archive vendor-related objects. Any Odoo user with an access to products might rely upon vendor data for informational purposes.

Vendor inventories control

  • Each vendor stock level is provided per definite vendor location (warehouse). Vendors might create, edit, and archive own warehouses
  • The tool allows to introduce an unlimited number of vendor locations per each supplier. Locations are distinguished by name, address, and average delivery time
  • Keep stock levels in vendor units of measure, but purchase managers should make sure it has the same category as a linked Odoo product. The idea is to support conversion in order internal users work with habitual figures. For example, dozens and units are fine, while dozens and hours might lead to inconsistent procurement
  • Vendor stocks and locations might be switched off for portal users on the app configuration page
  • Stock levels are not used in Odoo operations, but they are provided for general information. Inventory levels are updated either manually by purchase managers / vendor representatives or through the import
  • Odoo warehouses' stocks are not linked to vendor stocks. Vendor stocks are absolutely independent since it is not possible control supplier moves, and, hence, to support double-entry system
  • Vendor inventories might be of especial importance in case of make-to-order logistic or drop shipping.

Frequently Asked Questions about Vendor Products Portal Odoo v.14

According to the current Odoo Apps Store policies:

  • every module bought for the version 12.0 and prior gives you an access to the all versions up to 12.0.
  • starting from the version 13.0, every version of the module should be purchased separately.
  • disregarding the version, purchasing a tool grants you a right for all updates and bug fixes within a major version.

Take into account that Odoo Tools team does not control those policies. By all questions please contact the Odoo Apps Store representatives directly.

  1. Unzip source code of purchased tools in one of your Odoo add-ons directory

  2. Re-start the Odoo server

Yes, sure. Take into account that Odoo automatically adds all dependencies to a cart. You should exclude previously purchased tools.

Regretfully, we do not have a technical possibility to provide individual prices.

Yes, all modules marked in dependencies are absolutely required for a correct work of our tool. Take into account that price marked on the app page already includes all necessary dependencies.  

No, third party apps can not be used on Odoo Online.

Red / orange warning itself does not influence features of the app. Regretfully, sometimes our modules do not pass standard automatic tests, since the latter assumes behavior which is in conflict with our apps goals. For example, we change price calculation, while standard Odoo module tests compare final price to standard algorithm.

So, first of all, please check deployed database features. Does everything work correctly?

If you still assume that warning influences real features, please contact us and forward full installation logs and the full lists of deployed modules (including core and third party ones).

As soon as you purchased the app, the button 'Deploy on Odoo.sh' will appear on the app's page in the Odoo store. Push this button and follow the instructions.
