How To Add ‘Self-Purchase’ Entry On ‘Arrivals’ Page Of ChargeERP? How To Add ‘Self-Purchase’ Entry

Different items are received in mandis on a daily basis. While some are procured and then sold, others are purchased directly from the suppliers. This is the next article from our ‘How To’ series. In the previous article, we discussed ‘How to add ‘Party Stock’ entries on the ‘Arrivals’ page of ChargeERP’.

Under the ‘Self Purchase’ tab of the ‘Arrivals’ page, commodities that are directly purchased by the commission agents from suppliers are added. No matter at what price the stock gets sold further, its profit and loss will be borne by the commission agents themselves.

Below are the steps involved in adding ‘Self Purchase’ entries on the ‘Arrivals’ page of ChargeERP.

  • Firstly, log into your ChargeERP account. Once you log in, you will directly land up to the ‘Dashboard’ page. From the top left corner of the ‘Dashboard’, click on the company name dropdown (A) and choose the company you want to add self-purchase entries to.
  • Now, using the sidebar option on the left side, just click on the ‘Arrivals’ tab (B).
