Managing incoming items

There are several ways to book stock into your system. However, to book variations in you need to have set up a complete warehouse and you need to have a warehouse, a storage location and a supplier assigned to a variation. On this page you will learn how to assign a storage location and a supplier to a variation. Furthermore you will read how to book stock in the Stock » New incoming items menu. Your system will only be able to adjust the display of variations in your store automatically as well as to start listings automatically if you book variations in and out and manage your stock correctly in plentymarkets.

1. Assigning suppliers to a variation

A supplier must be assigned to a variation before you can book incoming items and the supplier is also required to create reorders. Suppliers are customers that were assigned to the customer type supplier. So you need to create a supplier before you can assign a supplier to a variation. The steps for creating a supplier are the same as for creating other types of customers. You just have to make sure that you select supplier as customer type.

Assigning suppliers:

  1. Go to Item » Edit item.

  2. Open the item.

  3. Open the variation.

  4. Click on the Supplier tab.

  5. Select a supplier from the drop-down list.

  6. Click on Add.
    → The supplier will be assigned to the variation and you can carry out further settings.

Table 1. Supplier information of a variation
Setting Explanation

Supplier item No.

Enter the item number that your supplier gave the variation. You can use this number to search for incoming items.

Purchase price

Enter the purchase price of the variation. Depending on your incoming items settings the purchase price will be overwritten. You can define whether or not the purchase price that was entered during an incoming items operation will overwrite the purchase price saved for the supplier. The setting for overwriting the purchase price are defined in the System » Stock » stock » incoming items menu.

Minimum purchase

Enter the minimum quantity that you need to order from a supplier. The minimum purchase will be used for reorders. However, the minimum purchase will only be used and displayed if the variation has actually reached the reorder level and really needs to be reordered. In other words the minimum purchase will not be displayed if variations have sufficient stock.

Delivery time in days

Enter the number of days that your supplier usually needs to deliver reordered variations. The delivery time can influence the quantity suggested for an reorder and the day that an reorder will be delivered. You can define whether or not the delivery time will influence the suggested quantity. The settings are in the System » Stock » Reorder management » Settings menu. The delivery time is here considered replacement time.

Last price query

Select the date from the calendar when you lasted requested the current price from your supplier.

Discount

Enter the discount in percent if the supplier offers a discount on the variation. However, the discount will only be used in reorders if the check mark for discountable is placed as well.

Discountable

Place a check mark to activate the discount entered. The discount entered will not be used in reorders if this check mark is not saved.

Packaging unit

Enter the units contained. This is especially important if the units contained in the variation that the supplier offers differs from the regular number of units contained and that you saved in your variation data record. The units contained saved in the variation data record can be found in the Settings tab of a variation.

2. Linking a variation to a storage location

A variation needs a warehouse and a storage location before you can book stock in. Without a warehouse and a storage location the system does not know where to book the stock and therefore does not book stock. The standard storage location is only a placeholder location and is used if you have not assigned an individual storage location yet. The best is to select one of your storage locations to begin with.

Inheriting the variations to variations

When you activate a warehouse for a main variation, this setting is inherited to all variations of the item.

  1. Go to Item » Edit item » Open item » Edit variation.

  2. Click on the Warehouse tab.

  3. Select a warehouse from the drop-down list.

  4. Click on Add.
    → The warehouse will be assigned to the variation and you can carry out further settings.

Table 2. Warehouse settings of a variation
Setting Explanation

Storage location type

Select the type according to the size of the variation

Zone

Select a zone if you have set up zones for this warehouse

Reorder level

Enter the quantity that you want to use to reorder a variation. A suggestion for a reorder quantity will be made when this reorder level is reached. Until the level is reached 0 will be displayed as suggestion, because the reorder level defines when you wish to make a reorder.
Note: If the difference between the current stock and the reorder level is calculated dynamically, the only valid value is 0.

Stock turnover (in days)

Enter the number of days that the stock of a specific variation should suffice until the next reorder. This value is relevant for calculating the reorder quantity. A standard value that could be used for the stock turnover is 14 days. Once the item has reached the reorder level, the value entered will be used for calculating the quantity of items that need to be reordered. In other words, the quantity suggested for reorder would be sufficient for the following 14 days. If no value is entered here, the stock turnover (in days) is not taken into account for the calculation of the reorder date.

Maximum stock

Enter the maximum stock for the warehouse. The maximum stock influences the suggested reorder quantity by limiting the reorder quantity. Or in other words the reorder quantity will not exceed the quantity entered here.

Stock buffer

Enter a desired value as the stock buffer. The stock for particular markets will then be reduced by this value.
Example: You have 50 items in stock and you want a stock buffer of 10 items so that the item can not be sold out completely on this market. In this case, enter 10 as the stock buffer. Now, 40 items are in stock on this market.
The values entered here are considered for markets such as Neckermann, Otto and Plus.de. The buffer entered here takes priority over the buffer values entered for the particular market.

Best before date

Select if best before dates are to be saved for this variation and this warehouse.
Note: Once stock is booked to the warehouse, you can no longer deactivate the option Best before date. If the stock level for this warehouse is 0, the option Best before date can be activated or deactivated.

Batch

Select if batches are to be saved for this variation and this warehouse.
Note: Once stock is booked to the warehouse, you can no longer deactivate the option Batch. If the stock level for this warehouse is 0, the option Batch can be activated or deactivated.

Suggested storage location

Select a storage location for the particular warehouse. This storage location will automatically be suggested when a reorder is made. The setting default storage location actually means that storage location to be assigned.

3. Identifying the purchase price

The range of settings that are connected to the purchase price is versatile. 2 different purchase prices can be shown in the variation’s data record. One purchase price is always the moving average price. The second purchase price that will be displayed depends on your settings. You can either enter a purchase price or you can transfer a purchase price from the latest incoming items data record. You also have the possiblity to transfer a second average purchase price. This second average purchase price is a sort of live average purchase price. All different purchase price options that can be transferred are described in the Transferring storage location and purchase price chapter.
How the two different average purchase prices are calculated is described in the following table.

Table 3. average puchase price
Live average calculation Moving average calculation

\(LAPP_{new} = {LAAP_{old} \cdot Quantity_{old} + EK_{new} \cdot Quantity_{new}\over Quantity_{old} + Quantity_{new}}\)

LAPPnew = New live average purchase price
LAPPold = Old live average purchase price
Quantityold = Previous stock quantity
PurchasePricenew = Purchase price of incoming items
Quantitynew = Quantity of incoming items

\(MAAP_{new} = {MAAP_{old} \cdot Quantity_{old} + PurchasePrice_{new} \cdot Quantity_{new}\over Quantity_{old} + Quantity_{new}}\)

MAAPnew = New moving average purchase price
MAAPold = Old moving average purchase price
Quantityold = Previous stock quantity
PurchasePricenew = Purchase price of incoming items
Quantitynew = Quantity of incoming items

A recalculation will be carried out in the following cases:

  • Incoming items and

  • Outgoing items

The current average is given in export formats or used for statistics. If you wish to see this purchase price in a variation’s data record, then you need select that the average purches price will be transferred.
The purchase price setting can be found in the System » Stock » Stock » Incoming items menu. The option that you need to select is Save live average purchase price in the variation data. The other options available in the dropdown are explained in the Table 4

A recalculation will be carried out in the following cases:

  • Incoming items

However, a recalculation will only be carried out if you defined that stock booked into this warehouse is used for the calculation of the moving average purchase price. Each variation has a separate field for showing the moving average price.
Go to System » Stock » Stock » Incoming items to activate the warehouses that will be used for calculating the moving average purchase price.

4. Transferring the storage location and the purchase price

When you add items to an incoming item data record, you can enter the purchase price, the recommended retail price and the storage location. The RRP will be applied to the variation data record once the incoming item data record is approved. When you add the same variation several times but with different RRPs, then the highest RRP will be saved in the variation data, once the incoming item data record is approved. You can specify whether or not the purchase prices of incoming items are saved with the item. If you wish to transfer the purchase price you have several options to select from. In addition, you can also select whether or not a specified storage location for incoming items is saved in the variation data.

Choosing a transfer option:

  1. Go to System » Stock » Stock » Incoming items.

  2. Select a setting. Pay attention to the information given in Table 4.

  3. Save the settings.

Table 4. Defining how prices and the storage location are transferred
Setting Explanation

Choose whether or not the purchase price will be transferred and if you choose to transfer the purchase price, select where the price will be saved. The storage location while be saved once the incoming items data record was approved.
Do not transfer the purchase price = The purchase price will not be transferred to other menus. Select this setting if you prefer to manually add and maintain the purchase price in the variation’s data.
Save purchase price in variation data = The purchase price will automatically be saved in the Settings tab of a variation. The purchase price that is listed last in the incoming items data record will be transferred if you have the same variation with different purchase prices in one incoming items data record.
Save purchase price in variation and supplier data = The purchase price will automatically be saved in the Settings tab of a variation as well as in the Stock tab of a supplier. The purchase price that is listed last in the incoming items data record will be transferred if you have the same variation with different purchase prices in one incoming items data record.
Save live average purchase price in the variation data = The average purchase price will be recalculated every time new incoming items are received or items are booked out. The actual purchase prices of those variations currently available in the warehouse are used for this calculation. The average purchase price will automatically be saved in the Settings tab of a variation. Table 3 shows the formula used in the calculation.
Save the highest purchase price = If several different purchase prices are available, then the highest purchase price of the current incoming items data record will be saved with the variation data.
Save the lowest purchase price = If several different purchase prices are available, then the lowest purchase price of the current incoming items data record will be saved with the variation data.

Storage location

Choose whether or not the storage location will be transferred and if you choose to transfer the purchase price, select where the price will be saved. The storage location while be saved once the incoming items data record was approved.
Do not save the storage location = The storage location will not be saved.
