Some retailers for example Coles, Woolworths and Metcash require you to send a purchase order response for each purchase order you receive. This option will not be available if you are not required to send a purchase order response.
Different retailers have different business and trading rules. You must take these into account when sending your purchase order response. For example some retailers only allow you to decrease the quantity, whereas others might allow you to either decrease or increase the quantity. Some retailers allow you to update the delivery dates, others don’t.
