Why is Unilever implementing PO Services?
As part of Unilever’s ongoing commitment to improving efficiency and supplier experience, the roll-out of PO Convert will speed up the sending and receiving of POs and invoices; ultimately, ensuring timely payment on goods delivered.
Our key objective of PO Services is to:
Make e-invoicing faster and easier for our suppliers by eliminating data entry, that takes time, can be error-prone, which causes delays and invoice rejections.
Unilever entities – scope and PO go-live dates:
Assuming your PO is in scope, please check the portal again in a few hours. If you still cannot see your PO, please contact Tungsten Support by submitting a ticket at the bottom of this page.
For Unilever suppliers, POs will start to appear on the portal between 2-5. Please continue to check the ‘My POs’ section of the portal. If you are expecting a PO but after 5 days you still cannot see the PO on the portal, please contact Tungsten Support. If you can see a PO on the portal, you will be able to use the convert functionality.
As shown in the PDF guide, you can check the ‘My POs’ section of your Tungsten portal account. Additionally, if you would like to receive email notifications when a new PO is showing on your account, please contact Tungsten Support who can help set this up.
No, you can only use PO convert if an eligible Unilever PO has been raised. Please encourage your Unilever customer to raise POs in the future so that you can take full advantage of PO Convert. In the meantime, please raise an invoice via the Tungsten Web Form in the usual way. Click ‘Create Invoice.’

Yes, you can. Unilever is happy to accept attachments that do not exceed 5MB. If you need help, please contact Tungsten Support.
Tungsten PO Convert allows you to adjust the invoice quantities to match your partial delivery to Unilever.

The Tungsten portal provides simple tracking of any previous invoices generated via PO Convert – this means you can be sure about remaining quantities to invoice
