A Vendor is a business partner from whom a business purchases products. A Vendor can be a company or an individual.
In the application, Vendor is required while creating a purchase order and in a few other transactions. A Vendor can be created by a back-office user. However, before creating a Vendor, the user must create a Vendor Group.
