How do I locate supplier information? What is the difference between the supplier info tab and the supplier price records?
Follow these steps
The GT Backend offers two primary locations to find supplier information.
Because the Supplier Info Tab and the Supplier Price Records contain the same information, if you change the information in one area it will be updated in the other.
Supplier Info Tab
Each product has a Supplier Info tab, which houses supplier price records for each product. If a product is sold through multiple suppliers, you will see multiple supplier records under this tab.
In some industries, each province or region will have its own supplier to capture the distinct costs/suppliers for a given set of products.
These records may differ depending on whether you are a single store, multi-store, or main environment. Some records will not be populated or relevant depending on your industry (or even who your suppliers are).

Supplier Price Records
The very same supplier information can also be located in the Supplier Price Records. However, because the information is presented in a table format, you can view, hide, sort, and filter multiple supplier records at once. Select Supplier > Supplier Price Records.
