Purchase Order Issued
The Body Shop sends the PO in the form of a purchase order schedule via email or fax. A scanned copy of the order is only sent by exception if pre-arranged. In all cases, the supplier should respond promptly to the PO schedule preferably within 2 days of receipt of the purchase.
This will either provide acceptance of the PO or provide details of what elements of the PO can be fulfilled and when.
New supplier orders are also confirmed in the orderbook and feedback can be provided on these as a part of the orderbook review process.
For all purchases, The Body Shop's terms and conditions will apply; these are attached to each order schedule. For the latest version of the Terms and Conditions, please contact the appropriate Body shop Sourcing Department.
