This tool aims to force suppliers to administrate their products in your Odoo portal. The app let vendor contacts to create, update, and import products they sell, related prices and stock levels by their locations.

Vendor products catalog in portal

The tool introduces a new stand-alone classifier of vendor products. Each supplier has an own catalog with unique product names and codes in the Odoo portal.
Any portal user may create, update, and archive products related to their company. Any purchase manager can do the same for all vendor-related objects. Any Odoo internal user with an access to products might rely upon vendor data for informational purposes.
Any vendor product might be linked to your own product. In such a way a purchase manager goal becomes to match 'their' products with 'ours'. Each of our product variants might have a few related vendor products.
As soon as you installed the module, Odoo would automatically create vendor products based on existing products' supplier infos.

Vendor stocks control without effort

Both vendor representatives and purchase users might register and update stock levels by locations.
You may access info of vendor products' stocks right from product variant, product template, and supplier form views. You should just click a related button to get an overview.
Our warehouses' stocks are not linked to vendor stocks. Vendor stocks are absolutely independent since we can't control all supplier moves, and, hence, can't support double-entry system
  • Each stock level is provided per definite vendor location. Vendors might easily create, edit, and archive own warehouses
  • Each vendor might have an unlimited number of locations. Locations are distinguished by name, address, and average delivery time
  • Stock levels are manageed in vendor units of measure, but purchase managers should make sure it has the same category as our linked product. The idea is to support conversion in order internal users work with habitual figures. For example, dozens and units are fine, while dozens and hours might lead to mistakes
  • Vendor stocks and locations might be switched off for portal users on the configuration page
  • Stock levels are not used in our moves, but they are provided for general information. Stock levels are updated either manually or through the import process. It might be done by both portal and purchase users

Supplier prices management and self-management

Portal users manage their company prices in their Odoo account, while purchase managers might update them in the Odoo backend interface.
Those prices are considered as standard Odoo 'supplier info' which correspondingly are used in purchase orders.

Comfortable importing of vendor product data

The tool let import vendor products and prices, and stock levels as an Excel table both in the portal and in the Odoo purchases interface.
In such a way vendor representatives are able to keep their product info updated.
The tool let portal and purchase users import vendor products and prices as an Excel table of the predefined format
  • The table format is supplied with this tool source code and would be available in the portal under the section 'Help'
  • You may change the table content to provide users with more specific examples and labels. However do no not change columns' order and do not remove those: it would lead to inevitable mistakes
  • The wizard offers useful tips to make a correct import. You may edit those recommendations on the configuration page, but make sure you do not remove critical advice
  • Each import finishes with the special results' and errors' pop-up. It let users control of what has been actually done
  • In the wizard users may select which table lines should be imported. It is useful in case the number of lines is too big to import them all
  • In the wizard portal users can select whether their previous products' list should be archived. It let fully replace the product catalogue with a new one
  • In the wizard it is possible to make previous prices outdated. It let users remove misleading data
  • In case import can't be fully finished until Odoo stops it, contact your system administrator to increase configured time-outs

To provide the feature of dynamic Excel table generation, install the Python library xlsxwriter:

pip install xlsxwriter

The app Vendor Products Portal is an add-on of the app Vendor Products Management. The latter allows managing vendor products, their prices, stocks at Odoo backend only (by internal users). The former extends that by allowing portal users (suppliers) by themselves introducing their catalog and updating/importing related documents: prices, warehouses, stock levels. Vendor Product Management is a required dependency for the module Vendor Products Portal.

According to the current Odoo Apps Store policies:

  • every module bought for version 12.0 and prior gives you access to all versions up to 12.0.
  • starting from version 13.0, every module version should be purchased separately.
  • disregarding the version, purchasing a tool grants you a right to all updates and bug fixes within a major version.

Take into account that the faOtools team does not control those policies. For all questions, please contact the Odoo Apps Store representatives​ directly​.

The easiest approach is to use the Odoo store built-in workflow:

1. Open the module's page and click the button Deploy on odoo.sh

2. After that, you will be redirected to the GitHub page. Login to your account and click 'Create a new repo' or use the existing one. Please, make sure, that your repository is private. It is not permitted to publish the apps under the OPL-1 license. If necessary, create a new repo for your Odoo.sh project

3. Then, go to odoo.sh and click on the deploy button, submit the decision in the pop-up window and click 'Continue'. The action will trigger the installation process.

These steps would install the app for your project production branch. If you wanted to deploy the apps for other branches or update the module, you should undertake the following actions:

1. Upload the source code for the app from the Odoo store

2. Commit the module to a required GitHub repository. Make sure that none of the app folders/files are ignored (included in the .gitignore of your repo). Repositories are automatically created by odoo.sh, which might add by default some crucial items there (e.g. /lib). You should upload all module directories, subdirectories, and files without exceptions

3. Deploy a target branch of the odoo.sh project or wait until it is automatically built if your settings assume that.

  1. Unzip the source code of the purchased tools in one of your Odoo add-ons' directories;

  2. Re-start the Odoo server;

  3. Turn on the developer mode (technical settings);

  4. Update the apps' list (the apps' menu);

  5. Find the app and push the button 'Install';

  6. Follow the guidelines on the app's page if those exist.

Yes, sure. Take into account that Odoo automatically adds all dependencies to a cart. You should exclude previously purchased tools.

A red/orange warning itself does not influence features of the app. Regretfully, sometimes our modules do not pass standard automatic tests, since the latter assumes behavior which is in conflict with our apps goals. For example, we change price calculation, while standard Odoo module tests compare final price to standard algorithm.

So, first of all, please check deployed database features. Does everything work correctly?

If you still assume that warning influences real features, please contact us and forward full installation logs and the full lists of deployed modules (including core and third party ones).

Regretfully, we do not have a technical possibility to provide individual prices.

No, third party apps can not be used on Odoo Online.

Yes, all modules marked in dependencies are absolutely required for a correct work of our tool. Take into account that price marked on the app page already includes all necessary dependencies.  

The price for our modules is set up in euros. The Odoo store converts prices in others currencies according to its internal exchange rate. Thus, the price in US Dollars may change, when exchange rate changes.

Bug reporting

Usually, it takes a few business days to prepare a working plan for an issue (if a bug is confirmed) or provide you with guidelines on what should be done (otherwise).

Public features requests and module ideas (free development)

We are strongly motivated to improve our tools and would be grateful for any sort of feedback. In case your requirements are of public use and might be efficiently implemented, the team would include those in our to-do list.

Such a to-do list is processed on a regular basis and does not assume extra fees. Although we cannot promise deadlines and final design, it might be a good way to get desired features without investments and risks.
