Introduction

Big companies use to import supplier pricelists day to day. Indeed, prices are always changing and you need to get price up to date to deal with a high number of products.

To manage supplier prices on product form, read this document (:doc:`suppliers`). Here we will show you how to import customer prices.

Required configuration

In purchase settings, you have 2 options:

  • Manage vendor price on the product form
  • Allow using and importing vendor pricelists

Here we are selecting: Allow using and importing vendor pricelists

Import vendor pricelists

There are 2 scenarios: import the vendor pricelist for the first time, or update an existing vendor pricelist. In both scenarios, we assume your product list and vendor list is updated and you want to import the price list of vendors for a given product.

To import a list from a document, the best pratice is to export first to get an example of data formating and a proper header to reimport.

Import the list for the first time

Prepare the document

In :menuselection:`Purchase --> Purchase --> Supplier Pricelists`, export a template of document to get import/export compatible and get the right format to import in mass. Create manually a data and export it (:menuselection:`select --> Action --> Export`)

Here is the list of fields you can import:

Header of the document to import (csv, xls) Meaning and how to get it Example
name_id Vendor ID -> export supplier list to get it __export__.res_partner_12
product_code Vendor product Code -> free text 569874
price Vendor Price -> free text 1500
product_tmpl_id.id Product Template ID -> export you product list to get it __export__.product_template_13
currency_id.id Currency -> to get it export the currency list

After the import, the Vendors section in Inventory tab of the product form is filled in.

Update the vendor pricelist

When the pricelist of your suppliers change, it is necessary to update existing prices.

Follow the procedure of the first scenario in order to export existing data from :menuselection:`Purchases --> Purchase --> Vendor Pricelist`. Select everything, and export from the Action menu.

Change price, end date, add a line, change a supplier, ... and then reimport in Odoo. Thanks to the ID, the list will be updated. Either the id is recognized and the line is updated or the ID is not known by Odoo and it will create a new pricelist line.

After the import, the Vendors section in Inventory tab of the product form is updated.
