If you report your cannabis sales to your state through Leaf Data Systems, follow this guide to receive cannabis inventory into Greenbits so you can sell it from your Register. For more information, see the Receive inventory overview.
Keep in mind that you won't be able to save a partially accepted manifest and come back to complete it later. When possible, set aside some time when you can work uninterrupted, especially for larger manifests.
Look for manifests in Incoming
- In the Back Office, go to Inventory > Incoming.
- Look for manifests under Pending, and select one.
- Greenbits lists any manifests that vendors transferred to you in Leaf that you haven't worked on yet under the Pending status.
- If you know that a vendor transferred a manifest but you don't see it in under Pending, select Sync and then refresh your browser window to fetch new manifests.
- Do not click Sync more than once! This could slow down the fetch process.
When you select and open the manifest, you'll see Lot numbers and inventory information for each of the items you ordered from the vendor.
Associate the items on your manifest with Products
Add Product information for each Lot number in the manifest.
- For each Lot number, associate it with a Product in Greenbits.
- Before you continue to the next step: If you have never sold this product before, select Add New Product and create a new Product.
- If you have sold this product before, select Search for products and and select it.
- If you receive a Lot with a barcode (SKU) that you have previously used, this is okay. Barcodes (SKUs) can be reused, so long as they are always assigned to the same Products.
- Enter the Wholesale Cost Per Unit.
- This is the cost that you paid the vendor for each unit of an item, not the price that you will sell the item for in your store.
- Enter the Quantity Received of the item that you are receiving.
- You do not have to accept all of the quantity listed for the Lot number. If you accept less than the full quantity, Greenbits automatically transfers the remaining units back to the vendor.
- If any Lots appear on the manifest with quantity measured in grams, ounces, or pounds instead of units, accept them and assign them to a weight-based product and convert them to units later. Read more about converting inventory here.
- If you need to create and print barcodes, select the Create button under Barcode (SKU). Learn more about barcodes. To print barcode labels, make sure your label printer is connected and then select the barcode button . You can also print barcode labels later.
- Enter Test Results for this Package.
You can select More data entry to enter more details for this Package, like Producer, terpene, and license information.
- When you're done, verify the Total Cost at the top of the page and then Save.
Reject any manifests or Lots that aren't correct
If you notice errors or unwanted items on a manifest, reject the entire manifest, or specific Lots, and contact the vendor to request a corrected manifest or Lot if needed. The information entered by the vendor cannot be edited in Greenbits.
Once you accept a manifest or Lot, you can no longer reject it. If you need to send inventory back to the vendor after you've accepted it, create a return manifest.
To reject an entire manifest, select Reject and enter a Note explaining why you are rejecting the manifest. The manifest will be moved to the Rejected section of your Incoming page.
To reject only a specific Lot, leave the Product field unassigned and enter 0 in the Quantity field. Any manifest with at least one rejected Lot will be moved to the Accepted (Unassigned Lots) section of your Incoming page.
On the vendor's end, any manifests or Lots that you reject will appear in Leaf Data Systems with an "accepted" status, but with 0 quantity. The rejected quantities will be returned to the vendor's inventory.
Accept the manifest in Greenbits
- Review the Total Cost at the top of the page and make sure it matches the total on your paper manifest.
- Select Accept.
Any Lots that you left unassigned and with 0 quantity in the previous steps will be automatically rejected and transferred back to the vendor when you select Accept.
If a vendor voids a manifest after transferring it to you, you'll see the manifest in the Voided section of the Incoming page in Greenbits. Voiding a manifest is a vendor-only action and cannot be done in Greenbits – this section exists only for record keeping purposes.
Reusing barcodes (SKUs)
Barcodes (SKUs) can be reused for the same products if you receive the same barcode (SKU) twice or more. If you try to assign a previously used barcode (SKU) to a different product than before, you will receive an error message.
Additionally, you will not be able to save the manifest due to the barcode (SKU) already being in use.
To ensure that you are assigning the correct product to the barcode (SKU), you can:
- Copy the Barcode (SKU)
- Search for a Product.
- Filter By > Barcode (SKU)
- Paste the Barcode (SKU)
- Select the product previously attached to this Barcode (SKU).
- Repeat as needed, save the manifest.
When you go to the Products page and view these Products, you will see that they now include the quantity you received. Print barcode labels, if necessary, and start ringing these items up at the register.
You can also view the manifest later by filtering for a manifest status.
