Zoho Inventory


Can I have a contact who is both a customer and a vendor?

No, if a contact is both your customer and vendor, you’ll have to create two separate contacts - one as a customer and the other as a vendor and link them in Zoho Inventory.

Pro Tip: A display name is generally unique for each contact. If you’d like to use an existing display name for another contact, go to Settings » Preferences » Contacts and tick the Allow duplicates for contact display name checkbox.

Linking Contacts

  • Once you’ve created the contacts, open any one of them.
  • Go to More and click Link to Customer/Vendor.
  • Choose the Customer/Vendor that you want to link this contact to.

Post linking, you view the payables and receivables in both contacts.
