vendy pro shopify theme

In PrestaShop, a supplier is a company which provides you with a product.

Having suppliers registered is optional if you already have a manufacturer who directly supplies you with their products. It all depends on your needs, but if your product supplier is not the same as the product manufacturer, then you should make sure to have both registered in your system, and associated with each product.

Managing suppliers
  1. In your PrestaShop admin panel go to Catalog -> Suppliers section: 
  2. Click the Add new supplier button: 
  3. You can set the following options:
    • Name;
    • Description – more complex description of your supplier and their activity and products;
    • Phone;
    • Mobile phone;
    • Address;
    • Zip/postal code;
    • City;
    • Country;
    • State;
    • Logo – essential: it leads the customers’ eyes to trust your shop almost as much as they trust that supplier/brand;
    • Meta title – appears on the search engines when a request is made by a customer;
    • Meta description – a presentation of your site in just a few lines, intended to capture a customer’s interest that appears in the search results;
    • Meta keywords – keywords that you must define in order to have your site referenced by search engines;
