Odoo 11 Invoicing Policies

Invoicing Policies

Anjali AjithJuly 18, 2020

Basically, there are two types of invoicing policies in Odoo 11. They are, Invoicing policies on Ordered Quantity and Delivered Quantity.  But we can set certain product privileges in invoicing policies. Individual products can be arrange to either of the invoicing policies.

In Odoo, invoicing policies on sales by Ordered quantity defines that the invoicing can be done for the quotations that had been confirmed or for placed as orders. On other hand, invoicing policies on Delivered quantities can only create invoices after delivering the products.

Moreover, Odoo also facilitate back order (if needed) enabling if full quantity of orders is not in hand and can be back order until it is available. Invoices can be form for the quantities that are to be deliver so far. Remaining quantities that are yet to deliver can have invoice created after delivery.
