Receiving Inventory

After you’ve created a purchase order in Shepherd (and once your order arrives), you’ll be able to receive inventory. You can do that a few ways:

  • Inventory > Dashboard > Receive Inventory

  • Inventory > Purchase Orders > Receive Inventory

To receive inventory:

  1. Click on the product that you’ve received

  2. Input the received (or "actual") quantity

  3. Input the cost

  4. Click ‘Receive’

This will automatically update the quantity in Shepherd.

Tip: Our inventory expert Nicole recommends using the Receive Inventory section as a way to monitor any orders that are delayed/backordered across different vendors. If you want more tips, she's full of them—just get in touch.
