You may want to record some of your contacts as vendors.
Before you can create contacts as vendors, you must specify a business relation code for vendors in the Relationship Management Setup window, and you must specify a number series for vendors in the Purchases & Payables Setup window.
Open the Contact Card window.
Select the contact you want to create as a vendor and click Functions, Create As, Vendor.
Confirm the subsequent message.
The program automatically transfers the contact information from the contact card to the vendor card, but you may want to add specific vendor information, such as invoicing and payment details, to the vendor card.
