Purchases in the POS

Last updated 17/08/2017

Purchases can be made and received from within the POS.


Maybe you order goods from your head office, but receive goods in store. Or maybe your stores purchase and receive goods themselves. Either way, Cin7 POS can accommodate your purchase process with its built-in Purchases tab.

The Purchases tab does not appear by default for all customers - so ask the support team to turn on the purchase tab for your account to get started.

You will also need to make sure, once switched on, staff have permission to view these modules.

Creating a Purchase Order

To create a Purchase Order from the POS.

  1. Click on the menu icon, top left, and from the Purchases section click New Purchase Order.
  2. Enter customer and product details - for more information see Creating a Purchase Order.

Receiving a Purchase Order

Stores can only receive goods for their own branch.

To receive goods:

  1. Click on the menu icon, top left, and from the Purchases section click List Purchase Orders.
  2. Enter a fully received date, or receive each line individually.
  3. If any back orders need to be made, this can be done by following the Back Order Process.

Note that stores cannot enter invoice dates, so this will have to be processed through the backend.
