To be able to place a non-catalog order, the Supplier will need to have their setting of Allowing Non-Catalog items enabled and your Community setting should match the supplier's setup of allowing Non-Catalog purchases. See Editing a Supplier regarding this setting.
For Lite Suppliers, who don't have catalogs in Unimarket this is the only option.
Note: Some Premium Suppliers do not allow non-catalog items to be created since all of the products offered are on their roundtrip or in their catalog. For these suppliers you will not see the option to create non-catalog item.
How to Create a Manual/Non-Catalog Item
From the Create button in the top right of the Marketplace dashboard, a user with Buyer role can select Create Non-Catalog.
This can also be done when visiting a Supplier page where the same Create button can also be found, with the same option to create Non-Catalog item.
In the Create a Non-Catalog Item screen
- Enter the details of the product/service you wish to order from the supplier. The non-catalog item form has required fields for Item Name, Unit Price, Unit of Measure and sometimes Category depending on the configuration. For more information on how to use categories, see Unimarket Product Categorization (UNSPSC).
- The remaining fields like Description, Product Code (SKU) or Manufacturer Part ID are optional however, they are important details about the product that are used to ensure the correct product or service is ordered.
Once you have completed the non-catalog item form, click Add to Cart.
|Note: If the feature is enabled, there may be a checkbox underneath the Name field called Use Estimated Price. For details on this see Price Range Items (Estimated Price Items).|
- If you want to add more items for the same supplier, repeat the steps above until you have specified all of your items.
- When you've added all the items you want on your order, click on the Shopping Cart to begin The Checkout Process.
If you need to change any information in a non-catalog product item, you can click the Edit button to the right of the product subtotal to edit the product information within the shopping cart. The supplier may also be edited by clicking Edit on the line item in Checkout.
