Hey @CBD_AuthorityMV-

 

Thanks for posting in the Seller Community! We don't currently have a way to create a return purchase order. However, if the PO has already been marked as received, you can still edit the stock amount to ensure that your inventory is accounted for correctly:

 

 

 

 

 

A return Purchase Order is a great feature suggestion though, and I'll make sure to pass it along to the Square for Retail Product Team in case they hadn't considered it yet. Please feel free to contact our Square for Retail Support Team for any additional suggestions, as they specialize in the product.

I also would love this feature. Sometimes we need to be able to return a product to our vendor and we need a way to show it being taken out of the system, without just adjusting the inventory.

You can request this feature here, I'm not sure if its an active feature, if so you can like it to get more attention for this to possibly be added in the future.

The answer states that, "if the PO has already been marked as received, you can still edit the stock amount to ensure that your inventory is accounted for correctly."

 

This is not ideal on the accounting side of things. Now the historical purchase order doesn't reflect what actually happened, and there is no paper trail for the vendor credit to be applied to.

 

It looks like this "negative purchase order" for returns to vendors has been requested for over a year now, by multiple customers.

 

Is there any kind of timeframe in which we can expect this to function correctly?

The original question for this thread is dated 5/20/2020, and the response was nearly identical.

 

This is a basic functionality for inventory management and accounting systems. It's kind of mind-boggling that it wasn't included in the first place.

 

The fact that it has been an outstanding issue after being called to Square's attention over eighteen months ago with no apparent progress does not inspire confidence.
