Whenever you receive new stock, you need to add the invoice to your WISK account. If you didn’t generate the purchase order in WISK, you need to add the invoice for it manually.

This article covers the following topics:

Step 1 - Add the Invoice

1. Select the distributor you’re receiving the invoice from by clicking the drop-down menu


Note: If you don’t see the distributor the invoice is from in the list, scroll down to the bottom and click “New Distributor”

After you’ve selected the item, you’ll add the quantity on the invoice.

In the “Measurement” field you’ll select whether you’re adding individual units, cases (if a case size has been designated), or a manual value.

In this example, Ground Beef is entered as 5.56 units.


The manual measurement option is used when you need to enter the amount received of an item on the invoice in a different unit of measurement.

For example, you normally inventory an item in pounds, but it is in kilograms on the invoice.

If the cost is the same, click “Add” to add the item to the invoice.
