How to just receive stock in Vend


If you’ve placed an order outside of Vend you can now “just receive” your inventory in Vend without having to first create a Purchase Order.


  • Vend for Mac or PC 


  1. Navigate to Inventory -> Stock Control
  2. Click Receive Stock 
  3. Select Supplier
  4. Select Deliver to
  5. Enter Supplier Invoice Number (optional)
  6. Select Delivery Date (optional)
  7. You can enter your own order number, or you have the option to have Vend automatically create an order number.
  8. You can add products by typing the Name or SKU in the search field or by scanning the product barcode.
    • If the product has not yet been created in Vend, click Add "X" as new product and enter the product details. For further information on adding new products, refer to our How to add products into Vend guide

  9. Enter the Received Quantity for each product.
  10. Enter the Cost Price per unit for each product. This field will automatically populate with the products regular Supply Price. If you have received a discount for this order, you can capture this by changing the Cost Price to what you have paid and it will correctly calculate towards your Average Cost. This will NOT change the products regular Supply Price.
