Contacts Page

Welcome to the Contacts Help Page! Here you can learn how to add New Accounts and Contacts and update payment settings for specific customers and vendors. Let's go! 

Navigating to the Contacts page

First, navigate to the Contacts page from the top navigation. This is your library of accounts and contacts.

Adding new accounts

To create a new account, click "Add account" at the bottom of the accounts table. On the other hand, if you want to do a bulk import of all of your old accounts and contacts, send support@paperlessparts.com an Excel sheet with First Name, Last Name, Company Name, and Email Address and we'll handle importing them for you.

Add your new customer's or vendor's Account Name, Phone, Website, Email, First Name, Last Name, Phone, and Website. Add a salesperson, ERP code, Credit line, Tax Rates, Payment

NoteSelecting Vendor as the account type will restrict the account and its associated contacts from being assigned to a quote. Please make sure the account type is Customer in order to assign a contact to a quote.

You can manage Payment Terms, set an Order Credit Line, and manage the Tax Rate all here. Purchase orders are default enabled for all contacts. If you have credit cards enabled for your account, you will have the option to turn off POs as a payment option. Unchecking this box will enforce credit cards as the payment option. If the box is greyed and you would like to enable credit cards, you can set them up in the Settings Page.

Once the account is created, click on the account to view the account, update information, and add contacts, facilities, and a billing address.

NoteEach account can have multiple contacts. A contact can only be associated with one Account.

Note - Your customer's or vendor's Billing and Shipping information will automatically be updated when they check out with the Digital Quote. In the meantime, come here to update their information. The Shipping information is very important as this will be where your manufactured parts are shipped to upon checkout with the Digital Quote. 

Adding new contacts

To create a new contact, go to the "Contacts" tab in the table and click "Add Contact". Creating a contact is the same workflow as creating a new account.

You can manage contact information by opening a contact and clicking 'Edit' to update details and/or an associate the contact with an account. 

Note - Contacts must have an email that has not been used previously for another contact. If you are still getting an error about an existing email and you cannot find it on the platform, please reach out to support@paperlessparts.com.
