Hi. How can we help?

Importing NuORDER purchase orders into Retail POS (X-Series)

After you’ve connected your NuORDER by Lightspeed account to Retail POS, you'll be able to import purchase orders from NuORDER into Retail POS to be received and products added to your catalog.

Importing a NuORDER purchase order to Retail POS

  1. Navigate to Inventory > Stock control and click the Recommendations tab.

    If you do not see the Recommendations tab on the Stock control page, your NuORDER by Lightspeed account may not be correctly connected to Retail POS. Ensure that all steps in our Connecting your NuORDER account to Retail POS (X-Series) guide have been followed.

  2. From the list of purchase orders available for import, select the desired purchase order and click Import.

    Once a purchase order is imported from NuORDER by Lightspeed to Retail POS, any changes to the purchase order in NuORDER by Lightspeed will not sync through to Retail POS.

Linking your purchase order products to Retail POS

When importing purchase orders into Retail POS from NuORDER by Lightspeed, the following product import rules apply:

  • Products in the purchase order do not exist in your Retail POS catalog: the products will be automatically created and you’ll be taken to an open purchase order to select a supplier and a delivery location. Once this information is entered, click Save.
  • Products match or conflict with existing products in your Retail POS catalog: you will be taken through a product matching flow to ensure product duplicates are not created.

Products created and matched via a NuORDER by Lightspeed purchase order import will maintain the connection for future purchase order imports.
