There are several ways to transmit Purchase Order to supplier.  In Oracle PO itself we have options to send this legal document to supplier through Fax / Post / Email.

Most popular method to transmit PO is transmitting through E mail.  To perform this all we need to have valid supplier email address and should know how to configure this in Oracle Purchasing.

Let us see how to configure this in Oracle Purchasing.

The transmission format to the supplier is defined in the supplier window, under the “General” tab in the “Supplier Notification” field

The output format of the documents is specified in the purchasing option under the “Control” tab. It can be PDF or text format.
