How to create a Manufacturer List

The Manufacturer List is available for you to enter all of the manufacturers of the products you sell. This will allow you to specify the manufacturer of the items you are entering into your Retail Product list or Purchase Order. You may also sort lists by Manufacturer so that items in your retail product lists are easier to locate. You may add manufacturers to this list when you are entering your inventory items.

To enter the Manufacturer List, hover over Inventory in the Tool Bar, hover over Inventory Options, and select Manufacturer from the drop-down menu.
