Watch How To Automate NetSuite Vendor Deposit Prepayments

This article is relevant if you desire an automated mechanism to create Vendor Prepayment Deposit functionality in NetSuite.


A bit over year ago, I wrote an article, Better Visibility: NetSuite Vendor Prepayments and Purchase Orders, and the NetSuite community offered that they were pleased for the practice to learn how to pay for purchase order goods and services before they are received.

More recently, a client sought additional automation to the practice. So as we listened to their concerns, we developed a nifty tool that we call a Vendor Deposit Generator.

The tool is helpful to drive the NetSuite Prepayment Deposit process because it requires much less training or background knowledge for how to use it. While it follows the process in the related article, it goes further allowing users to create additional deposits. For example, consider the situation where a vendor wants 40% up front so they can start manufacturing, and then they want the final amount of the purchase order at the time of shipment — yet this is before receipt or a vendor bill. The tool allows you to add additional deposit amounts to drive the process so that by the time you receive the actual bill, you may have multiple prepayment deposits in play to be used to satisfy the actual vendor bill.
