This article will cover what Branding is and how it can be setup in Blackpurl



What is Branding?


Your Dealership may have several different business entities that all use the same Blackpurl but each business entity has their own logo and contact details


Ideally when you sell or purchase items for a particular business entity within Blackpurl, you will want that relevant business entity's details to print on the documentation ie Customer's Tax Invoices / Packing Slips / Vendor Orders etc


For example:

  • We have a company called - Price Dealership


  • Price Dealership comprises of three business entities that all use Blackpurl but all sell or service different things - Price SHOP 1 / Price SHOP 2 / Price SHOP 3 


  • Each time we sell anything from Price SHOP 1, we want the documentation from Blackpurl to have the relevant Price SHOP 1 logo / contact details / disclaimers etc to print


  • Each time we process a Vendor Order from Price SHOP 1, we want the Vendor Order to have the relevant Price SHOP 1 logo / contact details etc when printing or emailing


How to setup Branding


Please email your Blackpurl Support Team (support@blackpurl.com) and advise that you want to use the Blackpurl Branding feature as this feature needs to be enabled


Blackpurl Support will advise that the Branding feature has been enabled and a new System Setting will appear - System Settings > Branding Management for the Dealership to complete the setup

Setup Complete - How to tell Blackpurl which Branding you want to use


  1. Once the Branding has been setup, the first time a user processes a Customer Order, Blackpurl will require them to advise which Branding they are wanting to use
In the example below the user clicked on User-added image as they were requiring to print an Invoice preview:

  1. As this the first time the user will be using Branding, the user will need to select which Branding Location they want to use and then User-added image
