Managing Suppliers

Having suppliers registered is optional if you already have manufacturer who directly supply you with their products. It all depends on your needs, but if your product supplier is not the same as the product manufacturer, then you should make sure to have both registered in your system, and associated with each product.

In PrestaShop, a supplier is the company which provides you with a product.

If you sell your own products, you must at least create your company as a supplier. You can then remove the suppliers block from the site's left column:

  1. Go to the "Positions" page in the "Modules" menu.
  2. Find the "Left column blocks" section.
  3. Find the "Suppliers block" in that section, and click its trashcan icon.

You should also remove the suppliers block if you do not want your customer seeing who your suppliers are.

Just as for manufacturers, your site's visitors can have rapid access to all of supplier's products. This makes navigating around your site easier for them. In terms of visibility, filling out these fields will improve your position in search engines.

Click on "Add new", and a creation form appears.

Now fill out all of the fields:
