A preferred vendor is a supplier or service provider from whom you prefer purchasing an item or service among the other vendors in your business. This vendor may be decided based on various factors such as their quality, price, reliability, customer service, and so on.
Zoho Books lets you associate a preferred vendor for an item when you enable Inventory Tracking and the option to receive reorder notifications. This way, when your item reaches the reorder point, you can easily create a purchase order with the preferred vendor’s details.
Note: This feature is available only in certain plans of Zoho Books. Visit the pricing page to check if it’s available in your current plan.
