Is there a way to set up a Buying Group?

I am using desktop pro, we are part of a buying group and I want to know if there is a way to set up a single payee "parent" vendor that has multiple sub vendors under it... When I make a payment to them I only pay the parent company, BUT that parent company has 6 different vendors under it... I want to be better able to manage the group.  I know I can pay it that way in the bill pay, but I want to know if there is a way that the vendors can be linked to the parent company so i can see the totals, invoices, and transactions more easily. If not I will continue the way I am, but any suggestions would be super great. Thank you in advance

Hello there, @sherbie911.

 

I want to provide some details on how you can create a vendor lists hat has multiple sub-vendors. Let's get started!

 

  1. Click the List menu.
  2. Go to Add/Edit Multiple List Entries window.
  3. From the List drop-down, select Vendors.
  4. Locate the parent vendor.
  5. Click Customize button to select the columns you want to see in the Add/Edit Multiple List Entries window.
  6. Here's how to Add entries in the list.
    1. Click in the first empty row at the end of the list and begin making your entries.
    2. Also, you can copy (Ctrl+C) data from Excel and paste (Ctrl+V) it into the Add/Edit Multiple List Entries window.
  7. Click Save Changes.

That should do it! Feel free to click the Reply button if you have other questions about adding multiple list of entries. I'm always here to help.
