R12 - Supplier Creation - Part : 1
We setup suppliers in the Suppliers page to record information about companies and individuals from whom we purchase goods and services. When we enter a supplier that does business from multiple locations, we enter common supplier information only once, and we enter supplier sites for each location.
Most of the supplier information defaults to supplier sites. However, we can override the values that default if necessary.

Wecan create Standard or Employee suppliers. Use Standard Supplier for companies and individuals from whom we purchase goods and services. Use Employee suppliers for employees for whom we reimburse expense reports.
Names must be unique and can be updated if necessary.
Address Book Page :
For every supplier, we can create an unlimited number of supplier sites with different addresses and contacts. We can buy from several different sites while sending the payments to only one site.
Define how supplier sites can be used by setting the purpose for the supplier address:
• Payment. You can import/enter invoices for and make payments to the site.
• Purchasing. You can create purchase orders for the site.
• RFQ Only. You can create request for quotations in Purchasing for the site. You cannot create purchase orders for an RFQ Only site.
