A ‘preferred vendor’ refers to the vendor you (the business owner), would like to purchase
an item from. Zoho Books will show you the vendors you purchase from regularly under a
separate filter. When the quantity of an item drops below the reorder point, you can order the items from
your preferred vendors.
Here’s how this works,
Navigate to the Contacts tab and filter your contact list with
Vendors -> Reorder Items option.
You will be able to view the filtered vendors who are
associated with the items whose quantity has fallen below the re-order point.
Now select the vendor you
wish to order your items from, and click on Order Now in order to stock up.
