The Purchase module in CommerceCore™ is fully integrated into the Inventory and Sales modules. For drop-shipping processes, automatic purchases processes are triggered. Similarly, when stock levels are falling low CommerceCore™ allows an easy forward path to trigger procurement processes.
The focus is to provide an easy user experience for company purchasers to ensure timely procurement.
Multiple Vendors per Product
Following vendor data-points/fields can be maintained per product in CommerceCore™.
- Vendor name
- Purchase price
- Delivery lead-time
- Vendor product name
- Vendor product code
- Minimum order quantity (MoQ)
- Delivery lead-time
- Unit of (purchase) Measure (UoM)
- Currency of purchasing
Vendor Pricelists allow for the overview of pricing of specific products, and product-variants on a single comprehensive view.
Grouping by Products or Vendors allows for an even more focused overview.
As with other CommerceCore™ modules, the Chatter allows for excellent communication possibilities with your Vendors.
Create PurchaseOrder templates, or delivery reminders or payment notices – all in the familiar context of the specific business transaction.

Buy Orders based on Stock Status
While warehouse staff processes orders, they have an option on Delivery Notes to trigger purchase processes in case certain product is found to be low on stock.
To see how inventory can be replenished, please view Inventory → Stock Replenishment.
Integrated Dropshipping Processes
Whether you rely on dropshipping partners either partially or entirely for customer deliveries, the sales-integration with Purchase processes enables the automatic creation of POs upon the confirmation of an order.
