Setting up Suppliers in T-REX
Auto-fulfilled Orders Using Various Suppliers (Vendors)
You can sell any products you'd like in your T-REX store and you can use as many suppliers as you want. Be sure you have an account already setup with each supplier you are configuring in T-REX.
To have orders auto-fulfilled by a supplier, you need to complete two steps .
- Make sure the supplier can accept orders via email, using the T-REX CSV format. If it's a new supplier, contact them to work this out.
- Setup the supplier in your T-REX settings.
If the supplier cannot accept the T-REX CSV file or they cannot accept orders via email, then you would need to set the supplier on those products to your own email. When an order for one of those products comes in, you would need to manually ask your supplier for the products to fulfill your order.

How and Where Suppliers are Used by the T-REX App
Supplier in Product Page
Each product has a supplier listed. When you're adding a new product, be sure to specify the Supplier Email that orders should be emailed to.
****If no supplier is set in the product page then the Default Supplier set in the Business Settings is used.
Default Supplier in the Business Settings
In the T-REX > Business Settings, you should specify the email address that orders should be sent to by default. This will be used if you forget to set a supplier on a product. It is best to set this to your own email address so you will be alerted when a product is ordered that doesn't have a supplier configured. If this happens, you can forward the order to the appropriate supplier and make corrections to the Product listing (select a supplier) so the next orders will be routed correctly.
