Vendor Products Portal v.15
The tool to motivate vendors to prepare product catalog in Odoo. Vendor portal
This Odoo tool aims to force suppliers to administrate their products in the Odoo portal. The app lets vendor contacts 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.
Odoo supplier portal
Odoo portal allows quickly search and manage vendor products, locations, and stocks
Portal users may register, update, and import new items for their product catalog at any moment
Vendor representatives might manage their price lists, including registering new offers; modifying their validity period and minimum rules; deleting prices
Vendor users may import products and prices in a form of the predefined Excel table
Vendor representatives might manage their warehouses, including registering new locations; modifying their titles, descriptions, addresses, and delivery time; deleting warehouses
Suppliers can update inventory data, in particular register new and change stock levels per each location
Vendor users may import inventory levels in a form of the predefined Excel table
Suppliers can archive and restore products, prices, warehouses, and stocks.
Vendor inventories control
Each vendor stock level is provided per definite vendor location (warehouse). Vendors might create, edit, and archive their own warehouses
The tool allows an unlimited number of vendor locations per 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 for internal users to 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 to control supplier moves, and, hence, to support the double-entry system
Vendor inventories might be of special importance in case of make-to-order logistics or drop shipping.

Frequently Asked Questions about Vendor Products Portal Odoo v.15
The app Vendor Products Portal is an add-on of the app Vendor Products Management. The latter allows managing vendor products, their prices, stocks at Odoo backend only (by internal users). The former extends that by allowing portal users (suppliers) by themselves introducing their catalog and updating/importing related documents: prices, warehouses, stock levels. Vendor Product Management is a required dependency for the module Vendor Products Portal.
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 faOtools team does not control those policies. By all questions please contact the Odoo Apps Store representatives directly.
The easiest approach is to use the Odoo store built-in workflow:
1. Open the module's page and click the button Deploy on odoo.sh
2. After that, you will be redirected to the GitHub page. Login to your account and click 'Create a new repo' or use the existing one. Please, make sure, that your repository is private. It is not permitted to publish the apps under the OPL-1 license. If necessary, create a new repo for your Odoo.sh project
3. Then, go to odoo.sh and click on the deploy button, submit the decision in the pop-up window and click 'Continue'. The action will trigger the installation process.
These steps would install the app for your project production branch. If you wanted to deploy the apps for other branches or update the module, you should undertake the following actions:
1. Upload the source code for the app from the Odoo store
2. Commit the module to a required GitHub repository. Make sure that none of the app folders/files are ignored (included in the .gitignore of your repo). Repositories are automatically created by odoo.sh, which might add by default some crucial items there (e.g. /lib). You should upload all module directories, subdirectories, and files without exceptions
3. Deploy a target branch of the odoo.sh project or wait until it is automatically built if your settings assume that.
Yes, sure. Take into account that Odoo automatically adds all dependencies to a cart. You should exclude previously purchased tools.
A 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).
Regretfully, we do not have a technical possibility to provide individual prices.
No, third party apps can not be used on Odoo Online.
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.
The price for our modules is set up in euros. The Odoo store converts prices in others currencies according to its internal exchange rate. Thus, the price in US Dollars may change, when exchange rate changes.
Odoo demonstration databases (live previews)
For this app, we might provide a free personalized demo database.
No phone number or credit card is required to contact us: only a short email sign up which does not take more than 30 seconds.
By your request, we will prepare an individual live preview database, where you would be able to apply any tests and check assumptions for 14 days.
In case you have faced any bugs or inconsistent behavior, do not hesitate to contact us. We guarantee to provide fixes within 60 days after the purchase, while even after this period we are strongly interested to improve our tools.
Please include in your request as many details as possible: screenshots, Odoo server logs, a full description of how to reproduce your problem, and so on. Usually, it takes a few business days to prepare a working plan for an issue (if a bug is confirmed) or provide you with guidelines on what should be done (otherwise).
Public features requests and module ideas (free development)
We are strongly motivated to improve our tools and would be grateful for any sort of feedback. In case your requirements are of public use and might be efficiently implemented, the team would include those in our to-do list.
Such a to-do list is processed on a regular basis and does not assume extra fees. Although we cannot promise deadlines and final design, it might be a good way to get desired features without investments and risks.
