🚀 Pro Tip: You can use use ‘Accept All’ or ‘Reject All’ buttons on the top of the table to manipulate all line items.

6. After entering the quantity, click the Save & Update Shopify button for your received inventory in Fabrikatör.

  • The rejected quantity won't affect the available stock and the suggested restock quantity.

  • When you received all the products in the PO, the status will change to "Received".

  • If you are waiting for more products, but received some of them, the status will be updated as "Partially Received".

  • After your supplier approves your PO, but you haven't received it yet, the status will be "Approved".

🚀 Pro Tip: While you're waiting for your PO to arrive, you can activate backorder to continue selling. You can check How to activate backorders article.
